I've done just about everything in my day, and I'm currently a writer, self-employed. That means I get to plug in the earbuds and listen to whatever I want! I am determined to avoid retirement.

But in my free time I teach Scuba diving. I'm a certified Scuba instructor teach all levels up to Divemaster and five specialties, Deep Diver, Nitrox diving, Wreck Diving, Search and Recovery, and Dry suit. This is really my passion besides Skydiving, the Dead. After the Army plan to teach Scuba or possibly do the wilderness guide thing have alot of experience in mountaineering woodland survival etc. Much safer than current job.
I find bombs and blow stuff up. conduct mine counter mine operations. Patrol streets of Iraq, the city may vary, to find bombs and stuff to save lives of US and indigenous persons. Just glad to be alive.
Run run run for the roses.
I am a sociologist who researches the jamband subculture. I wrote my master's thesis and doctoral dissertation on the scene and am now publishing from them.
All we ever wanted was to learn and love and grow
I've been a Material Handler (fancy contractural language for a stockkeeper) at Amana Refrigeration Products (currently part of Whirlpool Corp.) since 1975. I warehouse parts for refrigerator assembly lines.
I'm not currently gainfully employed (should I even post?)
My first job (while I was still at school) was working on a stall in a market selling dried fruit, muesli and woks (?!!). The job was good - I ate my own weight in dried apricots during that time!
Then I went to university and graduated with a first in Classical Studies. However, I was in great danger of making a success of things at this point in my life, so I bummed around for a few years, before...
...getting a job as a support worker with adults with learning disabilities. This was the happiest working time I've ever had. The lads I supported with their day-to-day lives were so cool and we all had so much fun. I miss it bad. Anyway, the job came to an end and I got another one with a private care firm. It was hell, so...
...I packed it in and, since then, my wife and I have moved to the country and I'm in no hurry to seek paid employment: I'm currently in charge of keeping the house, cooking, cleaning, &c. It suits me and I'm satisfied. For now...
"Yes and the doctor call me crazy,
some says I am
some says I ain't"
Just started law school last month, no longer gainfully employed here...I had been in public accounting for 4 years previously as a tax accountant.
I'm an assistant dean for planning and resource management for the division of social sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I love my job because there are lots of puzzles to solve, smart people to talk to, weird issues to contemplate, and diverse tasks to organize. It keeps me from being a dirtbag and wandering the beaches, and gives me enough money to buy strings for my electric guitars. UC Santa Cruz is also the proud repository of the Grateful Dead print and memorabalia archives that is part of our permanent library collection, making UC Santa Cruz a major point in the world of Grateful Dead research.....and I think it's so cool.
