    I am currently a roofer/carpenter. I'll admit, the roofing SUCKS! :rolli: But I'll be back in school in August, so I will either stop doing it or cut my hours waaaaay back!

    I was a grocery store's service clerk for two years. A bagger, if you will. The day I turned 18, my manager was more than happy to bump me up to Produce Clerk. I'm going for Business / Management in college, so my Assistant Store Director says I need to gain experience in all of the departments, so she'll be moving me around a bit.

    I like my job as it is, and I'm sure I'll like it more when I get up higher. Of course, the primary reason for having a job is financial stability and personal security. (Not to mention that if that perfect girl with the huge lighted-up sign on her head finds me, I'll need to be able to support her as well as myself.)

    I start school in the Fall at RIT. I'll be studying Electrical Engineering. I also will be involved in AFROTC there.

    Currently I'm indifferent to my job. It can be enjoyable at times. It's just something to keep me afloat through college though. It's a means to an ends.

    No, I'm not in my career field. I plan on going active military. I am hoping to become a pilot, but who knows. My end goal is NASA or at the least to become an astronaut. Maybe through the private industry? If that doesn't work out maybe constitutional law. Or lifetime military? I'm not really sure. Depends on where I am in a few years.

    I'm now a sub-editor at a magazine publishing company, woop! I love it. Being an organised perfectionist is all part of the job, but I also get to indulge my creative side. I've already had someone praise me for being 'clearly a thinker, not superficial', and I'm diplomatic too apparently. Odd.

    I'm a CPA who is currently in Internal Audit at a mutual fund company. I like audit, but I'd rather do financial statements.

    What exactly do you do for work?

    I paint fences/railings/whatever you want to call them... metal ones. I just do this in my apartment complex as a summer job before I leave for college.

    If you're going to school, what are you studying for?

    Undecided, but it really bothers me. I need to figure out what I want to do with my life, and fast.

    Do you like your job? If not, then why? Do you think you would be happier doing something else?

    It's decent if only for the fact that it's pretty simple and it pays well. I don't like having to wear bad old clothing because I like being dressed in a more sophisticated manner, but that's not too big of a deal. However, I want a more permanent and stable job, and I have to move inside whenever there's rain, and then I fall asleep in the afternoon, and I don't like... no, scratch that, I hate sleeping in the afternoon. Also, it'd be nice if some of the people to interact with around here weren't old.

    If you're going to school, what are you studying for?

    I'm studying Computing Science at my university, with an intention of starting a career in software development as a programmer.

    Do you like your job? If not, then why? Do you think you would be happier doing something else?

    Yes, as it allows me a degree of creative freedom. An involvement in the arts has always been appealing to me, but I'm not sure if I would be happier per say.

    Are you in your career field? If so, how what made you decide that you wanted to be in this career?

    Yes, I suppose so. It's always been something that I was good at and I find that there is much satisfaction to be had in software development.

    I'm currently a college sophomore double majoring in History & German.

    History and languages have been well, my obsessions from early childhood. I wouldn't dream of studying anything else really.

    What exactly do you do for work?

    I'm a student / software developer / indie game developer

    If you're going to school, what are you studying for?

    I have papers for being a computer technian, but I'm currently studying computer sciences at the local university.

    Do you like your job? If not, then why? Do you think you would be happier doing something else?

    Studying is sometimes nice. Lots of stuff to learn, but sometimes it feels uselessly theoretic. Software developing is nice (and pays more), but I like more developing games.

    Are you in your career field? If so, how what made you decide that you wanted to be in this career?

    Well, I'd hope to be a professional game developer one day. Not perharps working with AAA games, but something more than simple flash/mobile games. Something that stands the test of time better than the state-of-the-art games.

    Technical Support Manager - I worked my way up from a technician. It's nice to be able to work in a field that is constantly changing. It really keeps you on your toes and doesn't get too dull.

    As a perfectionist, it's also fun to work on scripts that will make my job and other's easier. It is just a job to me and I don't really take a great interest in technology outside of work. My personal passion is gardening.
