I'm a night working computer geek. Just finished college and was just barely able to find a job before most of the tech market here in Charlotte shut down.

I was a bagboy at the local Food Lion when I was a junior. Not a bad job. It got me some extra cash. I've also been a stocker in a pharmacy. Little bit better job but still not great.

I work for my grandad's business. He sells cars and tires in B'ham, as well as other auto services. So basically I play with cars all day, and change tires. I like it, and make good money.

Before that, I was a DJ at a Skating Rink here. It was really cool for a while, with a teen-club atmosphere with dancing, laser tag, skating, batting cages, go-karts, and an arcade. I met so many girls with that job! Then the place aims their promotions at kids, and we get flooded with children, and the dancing aspect was eliminated (as well as rap music), so the teens no longer showed up. :cry: Ah well, I got fired anyways.

It was, indeed. If there's any similar places like that near you, definatley check it out. I started there just learning how to do music with other DJ's, and commentating on skating and foot races. Then I learned it all, and was doing whole sessions, and private parties. :dj:

Haha, I had the exact same two jobs when I was in high school. It was great with a very favorable girl/guy ratio. (not to mention that 75% of the women were very attractive) They sure treat you a lot nicer when there aren't many other guys!:D

I got an intership during college too. I highly recommend to anybody in college to get an internship. With the job market the way it is, its very helpful to get you foot in the door. Of all my friends who had interships, they all have jobs. Of all my friends who didn't have interships, 99% of them still don't have jobs. Its a very worthy investment of your time to find one.

I work in subway :D. Don't laugh, it gets me a bit of cash ;)
I don't know why i'm still working there though, its 4.20 p/h, which is ok I guess, and its stressful and boring because its usually only me working on night shifts... I have an offer to work as a lifeguard/swimming teacher at my local leisure centre, for 5.30 p/h............................................
The only reason I haven't left subway is because I don't want to leave them short-staffed because they are decent people.

I am a computer geek as well, I work as an NT administrator.

This is strange, cause most of people in IT that I work with don't even think about BB, yet we have quite a few here on the board.

In the past year I've worked IT, then changed jobs. The last one was a position as a Resident Advisor working for Job Corps (TDC). Not so in line with my degree, but I have RA experience.

Now I'm headed back to school to get an MBA (plus). I'll be looking for a little part time job. I have the NSCA-CPT exam in Feb, so...

LOL I don't give lessons in a physical sense. It's more or less talking to 6th graders to High School Seniors about Sex, STD's, etc. Although there are a few demonstarations that I do. My favorite is the classic how to properly use a condom, and there are no more banannas, we have a wooden penis from a condom manufacturer. I asked my boss if we could name it Woody but he didn't think it was very funny :)

I think this must be changing. I work at a small company as 1 of 2 sysadmins, and 3 of the guys I work with are very good sized bodybuilders...which is great because they are always up for going to go get some food :D

Heh.

I used to MANAGE a call center.

Think about dealing not only with all the people pissed off at the reps, but all the pissed off reps.

You couldn't pay me any amount of money to go back to doing that.

I also take inbound sales calls, which allows me to look at wwb and do homework all day. The main reason I dislike it is because it is too easy. It makes me feel retarded. ah well. I got a 4.0 because I have so much time, so it is worth it to me.
