    Jobs

    sorry guys and gals if something similar has been posted before, but just wandering what sort of jobs people in here work? Im sure we have a wide variety of occupations all come together to do something they love.

    I'll start with myself...

    Im 16 and still at school, hoping to go into medicine, looking a dentistry at the moment, but for now im working part-time at Wooloworths in the Deli.

    I'm eighteen. I was fired today (very long story).

    I used to be an all purpose pizza shop guy (preparing ingredients, actually compiling pizzas, baking them in industrial oven, etc.).

    I guess I'm in the market, then. I don't know what I want to do right now while still in school.

    lol im not a big fan of pizza...previous jobs i have had i worked as replenishment/nightfill at kmart, but it became to much as i needed to get my sleep at night before enduring another day at school...then i worked as a dishwasher at a club, but i hated it so quit, good money but i hated the work so much...and since then im just a deli boy...

    if ur still at school then just look into a job at a supermarket, something easy, or i'm sure you could find another job similar to the one u already had...

    I'm looking for something with better pay (only marginally, which is obvious considering my experience and credentials) and am willing to carry significantly more responsibilities.

    I'm not talking $50,000/year.. but it'd be nice to clear a solid 9+ dollars an hour.

    security for now, cant stand it. looking for something in manual labor, heavy lifting.

    first two jobs were at a supermarket and an auto body shop finishing cars.

    eventually planning on school for graphic design and digital photography (want to do cd covers, movie posters, tshirts, hats, etc.) the music community here is large and faithful enough to start a first business and get a good reputation in the industry.

    Smelly old butcher.

    My choices to move on;

    Back door it into University and study to become a Health Inspector
    Buy a shop
    Work as a Butcher in a gourmet shop (this I would really like to do)
    Work in a boning room, not my cup of tea - but what ever.

    Other options;
    Get into uni to study as a nutritionist
    Do some kind of Personal Trainer course
    Get my crowd control cert. So I can bounce (gotta get to 250lbs first, only 45 to go )
    Take up Audio Engineering/sound production


    After all is said and done, I'd rather be a meat head - working a 9-5 job picking up heavy things and mooving them to where the heavy things go.

    So you're the one who filled the position. I knew I wasn't the only applicant.

    I deliver auto parts in a box-bed Tacoma.

    I don't make much money but I don't need much either, plus I don't have anybody bitching at me all day. I work alone 90% of the time. Its fantastic.

    You must want to kill yourself after driving around all day.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    I am just wrapping up my Marketing and Econ dual major undergrad. Planning on going to law school.. studying for the LSATs now. Want to get involved in the Bio Tech sector as a contract (gulp) lawyer. Interests me.

    What also interests me though is anything outdoors. If I didn't ever want to have a family I would move to the south pacific and be a scuba/surf instructor. God what a life that would be. The way I look at it though, eventually I will have time to do what I love to do outside the office as well as in the office. Who knows where I will end up.

    This past summer I was a sales intern for Philip Morris (Marlboro cigarettes) hahaha. I laugh solely because I am the biggest anti-smoking advocate out there. Bad family history with the stuff. Good loot though, made 22 an hour. Expenses paid too; and I was only a junior. There were over 125 seniors vying for the position.

    I must say though, that the job I previously enjoyed the most, was a manual labor job in a lumber yard. I didn't eat correctly, which is a shame, because I would have been a monster. I got REALLY cut though - had an 8 pack.
