So what does everyone do here for a living?

Post by NeonVomit » Fri Dec 16, 2005 6:51 pm

Or study, or is still in school?

I'm a student, studying music at Roehampton University here in London, UK. I also work at the union bar.

What about you guys?

I study at the University of Toronto (I hope to finish this summer). I get a student loan, so I'm accumulating debt. :D :(

EDIT: Oh and I hate U of T (not the courses but the students :x ). They are as cold as icebergs.

I'm not really student, not really working, but doing a special kind of job training (student pilot). I have a whole bunch of debts cuz that training costs so much, but at least I have a guaranteed employment. And if the company didn't need pilots cuz of a crisis like there was 9/11 and I don't get a job, my debts are gone. That's a fair offer.
Temporarily I'm in the US, near Phoenix/Arizona. Nice weather all the time. 8)
But I've got so little freetime...

I'm studying at the Technical University in Budapest. I'm at the faculty of Informatics, and I hope to become a networks expert one day. I wanna teach networks from next september in my high school. That would be cool.

I study Audiovisual Communication in the "Universidad Mayor" ('Mayor' University) in Temuco here in Chile. I wanna work in cinematography, that's my goal, but of course I'm opened to work in television. I'm now way more realistic than when I entered the career...my goal and aspiration is to make films and work in that area. I still have not clear my specialty. Direction, script... I like photography direction a lot too...dunno still. Years will tell. :)

Your jobs are so exciting&I'd love to be back in College right now!!!! :D =P Party on!!! :rvd:
I'm just a lowly factory worker--most often a floater. :( But, given the job situation in USA,(Thanks, Bush) I am glad I have a job&it does pay well, so even though I work just a bit over part-time hours, my salary is enough to get by on.

I study Computer Science (for an M.Sc.) at a Finnish university. In addition to that, I work full time as a software engineer in a small software company.
Sporadically I also do some webdesign / graphics jobs, but I'm more or less retired from doing that professionally for the time being...

I study political sciences at the university Duisburg-Essen. If everything works well, I'll finish next year (then you can call we Dipl. Soz.-Wiss.:D)...
I hope to get a job at an institute for international policy / development / relations or something like that, perhaps even a job at a university.
Well, let's see. First I have to finish my diploma :?

I work in the marketing and promotions department for a local cable and high speed internet provider. We used to be part of Time Warner but split off from them. My job has many facets, but to describe it accurately I would say dealing with customers, on line support. Keeping customers happy when they put an order in to disconnect. Negotiate prices, and packages. I made $33,000 this past year, and there are all kinds of other perks like season passes to the Universal Studios Theme parks, and free tickets to Orlando Magic basketball games. I get top notch health benefits and the company matches you dollar for dollar in a 401K investment package.

I just finished community college, and I'm starting my last two years at the university in the spring. I'm majoring in Lighting Design. Originally i had a dual major in Psychology as well, but as per some good advice, I'll finish Lighting Design first and go back for Psychology afterwards.

I also work full time as an assistant manager/inventory manager in a toy store. If the pay didn't suck, i wouldn't work full time. 8)

What is Cardinal Newman? We have a high school here by the same name. Is there any significance to the title?

Cardinal Newman. Cardinal is a title given to high ranking priests in the Catholic Church. Every region has a Cardinal. Like a chain of command they sit above the Bishop. Pope Benedict was a Cardinal before he was Pope.

We almost played Cardinal Newman back in 1993, instead we played St.Thomas Aquinas and got our asses handed to us in the state playoffs

Thanks, I knew what a Cardinal was. I meant was there any significance to the name academically.
