I am very interrested in seeing what jobs people have in here.
Office during daylight and playing heavy metal
at night ?

In 3 weeks I have my exam in High School Economics and Society.( that's why I am not too active in here wink.gif )
My job is at a chipsbaker ( I think you call it like that smile.gif ) before this I worked at a Musicstore that broke down
and before that I worked at a Cinema and my first job was at Mcdonalds.

I am very interested in your jobs/educations :'D

greetings from where it is raining all day long.

I have studied geography and finished university 4 years ago. In Germany, the degree is called "Diplom", which equals a Master of Science in other countries. I focused on economic geography in my Masters thesis.
Now I work in business development in a city in the southwest of Germany. I am responsible for the development of an industrial area, meaning I care about the companies that already are in the industrial area, helping them out whenever they need something from the city administration, so they will only have to talk to me and I take care of the rest biggrin.gif And a main part is to promote the industrial area so that more companies will come here. That's the short version wink.gif

Physical therapist, finished school January and got a job 1st of February 37 hours each week, but only for 6 months, unless someone leaves or has a baby, so they need me. Mostly shoulder and hip rehabilitation as group training, and a lot of individuel therapy, some more than 90 years old, youngest yet 16 years old. Also a group for people who had strokes, this is not rehabilitation, but to see they maintain current levels.

Application architect/programming by day, and music by night. I work a typical 9-5 in the states, followed by family time til around 9:30 when they go to bed, then I pick up my gear and head to my studio from 10:00 til about 2:00 a.m. where I practice, then rinse and repeat. Pretty much my life story right there. Oh, but I do go out to play on Tuesday nights! Hi lite of my week actually - playing live in front of real people!

I am a cook at a bar/restaurant. I typically work Sunday-Wednesday for four hours a day so I can chase my dreams and play music for 12 hours a day. I make just enough to pay bills and purchase the gear that I need. Oh yeah! I practice with my band on Wednesdays, and every once in awhile, I will spend a full day or two in the studio learning from my friend who owns the studio and his own record label here in Southern California. Yup. That is my dull existence tongue.gif

I basically do factory work for a very well known bakery in the states. I work 10+ hours a day typically with 3 days off. Which the hours kill my guitar time because it's a very demanding job. But soon I hope to change this.

I repair aircraft. Mostly single engine, some twin engine and a little bit of helicopter work ( I used to do a lot of helicopter work in a former job). My specialty is Avionics (aircraft electronics) but I get involved in almost every aspect of aircraft repair (sheet metal, motors, welding, fiberglass).
I also fly. The aircraft in the picture to the left I built myself (with some help from my friends) and fly in airshows.

Well shucks thanks! smile.gif We used MAYA @ Turner Studios where I worked. It's loads of fun smile.gif I like AFTER EFFECTS too but it's more of a compositing/layering tool than a 3D creation tool. Although the new version of After Effects works in 3D space and will allow you to import 3D animation data from MAYA! smile.gif GAME SCHOOL is the new FILM SCHOOL they say where creative folks go to get sharp! Enjoy it! And learn some code base! C++, Visual Basic, just pick a spiff one wink.gif


The secret to getting goot with animation/fx/guitar, pretty much anything, is simple. PRACTICE! PRACTICE! PRACTICE! smile.gif If you are willing to exclude certain things from your life, so that you can focus on getting really good at any given thing, you'll notice you can make better progress than those around you. Of course there is a price to be paid. I'm not married, or even dating just now as I still spend wads of free time writing/composing/practicing instead of going out and such. I need to add some of that back in smile.gif I tend to focus too much and for too long actually which can have it's own drawbacks believe it or not. So strive for balance if at all possible smile.gif

Here is a shot of the awards table (otherwise known as a drinks table) at the D.A.E.L. studio at work. I let them borrow my awards as they only had one. I was really lucky to work with a great team at Turner Broadcasting and we won wads of broadcasting awards. It was fun!Attached Image

Mastering engineer and co-owner of a mastering studio as my full time job - 6 days a week 8:30-6 pm.

In addition I do occassional work for a couple of UK Universities as a post graduate marker and examiner for Masters and PhDs. I've written a couple of books, edited some academic publications and occassionally publish academic articles. I also referree for a few academic journals and publishers and once in a blue moon copy edit.

Education and qualifications (I get bored easily and do these to pass the time.):

Undergraduate degrees - BA (PPE), BSc (Chemistry) and BA (Sociology).
Post grad - PGCE, MBA, MSc (Analytical Chemistry) and MA (Sociology)
Doctoral - PhD (Philosophy)
Post Doc - D Litt. (Philosophy)

Memberships etc - CChem MRSC (Chartered Chemist) retired, M AES (Member Audio Engineering Society), FRA.

Some awards - did the post audio on two extended broadcasts that won Sony Music Industry awards and also did the post on a third that was nominated.

MBA received a commendation as it was one of the three 'best' (whatever that meant) in that University in the year I completed. PhD also got the same sort of thing, though it was national ans was one of five rather than three.

I also own a 4 acre small holding and so manage that with my wife.

Nice topic! I've read every post in it. It's fun to read what everyone does when they're not over here.

I used to work at an office for a large worldwide watches and jewelry brand. I was employee on the customer service department. It was fun while it lastet, but I always knew I wanted something different. Something that meant something to me, healthcare.
So, that's why I'm very happy that I got a job in a hospital over here in the Netherlands. In september I start as a trainee in anaesthesia. I'm gonna work in the surgery room itself, where all the action is happening biggrin.gif !

CAn't wait!

I have spent too many years at university, untill I was 30. Got my PhD but mostly I got bored of it. So i quit university and moved city.

Now I am in London working as Financial Administrator and reached 44 years old with the regret that I never played guitar even if I wished
