In the interest of getting to know some of you better, and in the interest of our entertainment in general, I wanted to poll the list and see what you all do for employment...you know...to pull in the green, bring home the bacon. If you're retired, please state that. If you're living off an inheritance, say that. If you'd rather not post, obviously that's cool too. Oh...extra points if you come up with a fancy title for your job too. :) I'll start it off.

I'm the GIS Coordinator for the Environmental Management Branch at the Public Works Business Center at Fort Bragg. Anyone who knows anything about government or military knows there's got to be divisions within divisions within divisions, so that's where the long title comes from. Basically, I administer all the databases and computer mapping for Fort Bragg's environmental compliance programs, like the Clean Air program, Clean Water program, Hazardous Waste, etc. I actually work for Science Applications International Corporation, which is one of the largest employee-owned companies in the country, and the world. We own a lot of subsidiaries, some of which you may have heard of, like Telcordia in NJ and Internic in VA. I'm here under contract with the US Army Corps of Engineers.

Now let's hear yours! :lol:

I am a retired Internationally Certified Biomedical Electronics Engineer, I worked on, repaired and designed medical equipment. I was the Supervisor of the Biomedical department of a 1500 bed teaching hospital in Columbia, SC. I enjoyed working in the OR rooms during heart surgery the most, that is where the action is, if the equipment screws up then the Drs are helpless, and us Biomeds have to get things rolling again. By the way, 98% of the time the problems are because of the human factor.

What a great idea!

My title is Strategic Accounts Manager for the Alliance Digital Division of Virtual Media Communications (Website). I sell / rent / lease Post Production and Entertainment Technology Soutions (primarily Avid Technology and related products).

In English, these are the software and hardware components that work together (hopefully ;) ) behind the scenes to produce what you are seeing on television.

I have just relocated from New York to Western Central Florida to build the Southeast Rental Division client base, but I still do a fair amout of business out of our NYC office, as well.

So remember....anyone out there looking to put a TV Studio in your Caddy.....I'M YOUR MAN :D

Cheers,

Tim

I am a self-employed commercial real estate appraiser with my MAI and have been appraising real estate since 1984. I have been in real estate since 1976. During the 80's I traveled nationwide for Bankers Trust Company appraising income producing real estate such as regional malls, office buildings, industrial buildings, hotels, and land. My most visible assignments have been the world trade center, the taj mahal casino, all of Trumps casinos in Las Vegas and numerous regional malls.

Historically I have been a first-class mechanic in Sun Ship Building and Drydock in Chester, PA where we built the Howard Hughes Glomar Explorer that pulled up a sunken Russian sub. That ship was also in the movie THE ABYSS. I was on its maiden voyage over a weekend to monitor its cranes. I was involved with the installation of computerized plasma cutting and I-beam bending equipment, and we were charged with the maintenance of all yard equipment including pumps, cranes and vehicles. I was also summer employee in the early 70s at a Cadillac dealer in West Chester, PA. I also build high performance computers as a hobby. Mike

Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life.

I am the Slot Manager at Northern Lights Casino located in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan Canada SIGA. I am responsible for the day- to-day operations of the slot deparment, I over see a staff 0f 50 employees. As you all know what the casino is about I basically look at diffrent ways to take your money from you and that may be by introducing new slot machines, vary pay out percentages and by moving slot machines on the floor to name a few. My job gives me the oportunity to travel into the states 3 - 5 times per year, last year I was able to see the show in Vegas. The way our company is structured I would be considered middle management but let me tell you I do have one of the nicest cars in our staff parking lot. For those of you who are are not familiar with Canadian law when a person wins a prize in a lottery, slot jackpot or any type of game of chance there is no tax on the winnings. Another interesting fact is that I am a Candian Indian who has treaty status (basically the government go can go back into historical records to confirm my ancestry) so that means no I pay no income tax. Actually I have dual citizenship I was born in the US on Andrews Air Force Base where they keep Air Force One. :)

:D This is a great idea! You people really know how to live....work! <_<

I am an Engineering Manager for a printed circuit board company in central Ohio.

We produce both commercial and military circuit boards. Mostly in small volume today, as the bulk of all circuit board production is, unfortunately, being sent to CHINA...{Which Sucks!} We have circuits on the space shuttles as well as the international space station. Some are in mortor rounds, making them programmable! How about Hellfire missiles...and handheld scanners...and automotive brake systems...and the robot used to defuse the juvenile suicide bomber on CNN a while back when he chickened out at the last minute... :ph34r: and the list goes on.

Thanks for Asking! :D

I'm a Director of Engineering for a subcontract Defense Contractor in Houston, TX. We primarily design & build specialty equipment such weapons and cargo elevators, torpedo handling and stowage equipment, hangar doors, watertight doors and hatches, various cranes, winches and ramps.

Our equipment is on the U.S. Navy's DD-Class Destroyers, CG-Class Cruisers, LHD-Class Amphibious Assault Ships, LPD-Class Amphibious Transport Dock ships, SSN-Class Fast-Attack Submarines and MHC-Class Minehunters. We also build similar marine equipment for Australia, Denmark, The Netherlands, South Korea, all through the DoD.

Currently, we have some new non-DoD projects, such as radioactive-shielding doors and a remote-controlled crane in a radioactive "hotcell" for the DOE's Hanford site in Richland Washington. We are also developing and prototyping a one-of-its-kind induction welding machine for a major oil comapny, through a consortium of international companies familiar with this process.

I am the Family Advocacy Treatment Manager for the Family Advocacy Program at the 366th Medical Group of the 366th Medical Operations Squadron of the 366th Fighter wing at Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho. We're the guys who put 90% of the ordance down after 9/11 - the President's Own 911 team. We used to have B-1 Bombers and KC-130 Air Refuelers - now we're fighter bombers with F-15 Strike eagles and F-16 Hornets. Heard we might get some of those new Raptors -

All that fancy stuff means I'm a social worker that works with military families in the areas of domestic violence and child maltreatment. That's a part of it anyway - the rest is I teach 18-22 year old kids how to be real partners to each other and to become great parents.

I've a Brother at Ft. Bragg - he's a WO-4 with the green Berets. Not sure where he is at currently. Last time I talked to him he was headed up to serve with the Kurds -

There was a poll like this about 2 years ago on the old board and was just as interesting then.

I am a flight dispatcher for United Airlines (no not an air traffic controler). We like to say "we provide adult supervision for pilots" :lol: or "dispatchers tell pilots where to go". We are licence by the FAA. We work up a flight plan, pick the route, calculate the fuel required, calculate the allowable takeoff weight, pick the alternate (if needed), then issue and sign a legal release that the captain also signs making us jointly responsible for the saftey of the flight. We are also responsible for ok'ing or refusing any saftey related items that maintainence wants to defer. We then monitor the progress of the flight from start to finish and advise tha captain of any changes (thunderstorms builing along his route, turbulence, weather deteriorating at destination, braking action on snowy/icy runways). We are also the first point of contact for enroute problems (hydraulic failures, engins shut downs, generator failures, obnoxious drunks, heart attacks (once had captain having a heart attack), etc, etc. We are basically part pilot, part navigator, part mechanic, part meteorologist and part mind reader. I have to fly in the cockpit once a year to maintain my qualification and have even been trained in the use of a Tazer (who'd of ever thought).

I believe I posted this earlier today in another thread... I'm a Marketing Director for Metro, the world's largest global newspaper with 14 million readers every day.

During my workday, I'm in the office working the phones, making deals, and managing a staff of five, creating everything from advertising campaigns to sales collateral materials to promotions ranging from contests to conferences.

During my worknights, I'm out and about in Philadelphia (or Boston, where I spend a few days a month) "representing" the newspaper at various social functions. So basically I get paid to eat, drink, and be merry.

Oh yeah, I also have a "street team" of 25 models who do promotional appearances for the publications, I throw parties for our clients and readers (can you say open bar?), and I get to go to virtually every concert, sporting event, or arts-type presentation that comes through either city.

In other words, I got mad hook-ups, and get much love from the ladies who like to be seen on the scene (and who dig being driven around in a big fast Cadillac).

Oh yeah, and in my spare time, I've got the obligatory wife, two kids, dog, house, cars, plus a Harley for any free time that happens to come my way.

It's all good in my neighborhood...

How's this;

I am a retired steel worker living in west central Florida and operating a crematory. Just can't seem to get away from those furnaces. :)

Wife is a retired banker, working as a bag lady at the local supermarket.

Guess Caddy owners really do come from all walks of life.

Howyadoin,

When I'm not working in my recording studio B) , I'm a control software development manager for a manufacturer of semiconductor processing equipment in northern Massachusetts.

Our machines remove residue from the silicon wafers that eventually become chips. The residue is left by other processing steps in the long sequence that goes into making a chip. Our machine's claim to fame is that is does residue removal without the use of hazardous and polluting chemicals, unlike some or our competitors. My team and I write the software that runs the machine, the graphical user interface, and the interface to the factory's automation system.

My background prior to this was systems engineering in the field of electronic security systems. This included audio and video surveillance, access control and the like. I still do a bit of this on the side, when the opportunity arises.

Quite a diverse group of people here... Interesting thread!

By day, I am a legal secretary. The attorney I work for does just about everything except criminal. Here's his website: http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/LBDLAW/ I designed the site.

During my spare time, I am a free-lance photographer. I work for the local rag, the Bergen Record. I also do real estate photography for brokers and homeowners who want nice digital images of their properties. I also photograph cars for anyone who is interested in owning some nice images of their ride. I do natural light portraits of adults, children, infants and pets. I also do forensic photography when called upon by attorneys.

I am also the East Coast/Atlantic representative for the Royal Photographic Society, and I hold a Licentiateship with the Society. As the east coast rep, I am responsible for the membership in the entire USA, with the exception of California, which has their own reps and chapter. I am the webmaster for the RPS-Atlantic website http://www.rps-atlantic.org and I'm the editor and publisher of the monthly newsletter for the RPS-Atlantic Chapter.

I'm a member of the National Press Photographers Association.

I am a certified firearms instructor with the NRA and my speciality is pistol.

If you really want to make people safe drivers again then simply remove all the safety features from cars. No more seat belts, ABS brakes, traction control, air bags or stability control. No more anything. You'll see how quickly people will slow down and once again learn to drive like "normal" humans.

I am a Team Leader for Specimen Processing at Quest Diagnostics. We are the largest clinical laboratory in the United States and I have worked there for the past 14 years. :blink:

During my first 8 years there, I also owned a computer store. We did network setups, complete system builds and software installations. Once the computer industry blew up in the late '90, it became really difficult to compete with the likes of Gateway, Dell, Compusa, BestBuy, Circuit City, etc......... :(

These days, I just do my thing at work. My wife is currently in RN nursing school and that takes up just about every minute she has. I have become the "domestic god" at home(allow me to survey my kingdom) ;) to free-up time for her.

Do I not just have the most exciting life! :D
