What do you guys do for employment?

Post by AaronLeft » Thu Apr 17, 2008 4:19 pm

It would be kinda interesting to see what professions are represented here. Me? I have a few hats so far, security consultant and contractor, firearms instructor, FPO. After I get my EMT back (just to renew) I will probably start school for my bail bondsman/ bail enforcement license for some part time work while I am in school. Anybody else?

I'm a universitystudent working on a teachersdegree in social sciences and philosophy. I recently quit my job as a security guard because I got feed up when they made the nightshifts 12 hours long.

I've been a guide at an museum and a youthleader for my dad's church back at high school.

I don't know if I want to be a teacher or try doing some more advanced securitywork, but not getting a universitydegree is not an option according to my parents.

I've been a:
stock room clerk at a chair factory,
mechanic,
automotive machinist,
T&D machinist,
sheet metal fabricator,
Top Alcohol Dragster crew member,
Auto parts store manager,
4x4 parts salesman,
pizza delivery technician.
A large portion of these have been done concurrently, all in a row and I'd be 80 instead of 40. :(

Firefighter/EMT-B. In my off time a part time handyman. You would be suprised how many people can't even change a light bulb on their own.

Don't worry 19kilo some of us love a good resp tech. Especially if your local hospital doesn't have a large staff.
