    Freelance graphic design, with a little extra cash from painting.

    I work in film production. Usually in the production office. We do all the stuff from arranging travel to ordering equipment to making sure ll the paperwork is done to fulfilling all the weird and wonderful needs which arise. Basically if Warren say was coming for a visit we would arrange his flight and place to sleep and make sure he had plenty of Red Bull and attend to any other needs which arise.

    I worked on Final Destination 4:3d earlier this year. Been off since we got done in June. Hopefully I will be back to work soon.

    I want to be making my own movies. Working to get there.

    I worked as a roadie for metal bands, an album reviewer, substitute teacher and music producer. I graduated in business administration with a major in marketing and a minor in finances, I worked as a marketing products developer for a bank. Currently I am unemployed, I roam my neighbourhood naked looking for small rodents to sacrifice to my made up god... I plan on getting a job in games designing

    Brian here. Right now, I'm a freelancer. You need it done, I get it done. "It" being, construction, writing, cooking, etc.

    I was in security and production management for a rock venue, now I do bookkeeping for a totally unrelated business. Low stress, and lets me get writing done at home.

    I'm Dave. I work in video games, with the official sounding job title of 'Microsoft Compliance QA Specialist' which only means I'm a video game tester, and I work exclusively on Xbox360 games. This involves more pounding my head against my desk than one might think.

    Journalist by day, freelance writer by night (perhaps you've seen me over at CBR). Vigilante, photographer and eBay seller on the weekends. Trying to get some comics written and/or published whenever I have time (one down, one forthcoming, a world to go), and I spend about one day a week shopping for cars for the family car lot (I've also got a used car sales license).

    Is that enough?

    For the past five years, I've worked in Customer Call Centers, using my calming voice to talk people down from spazzing about health benefits and 401k. After realizing that I wasn't going anywhere in the company, I thought I'd try something new -- but ended up in a NEW call center, in order to keep money coming in. Other revenue streams will hopefully bear fruit eventually.

    With my voice, people keep telling me I should be singing. Not sure what to do with that.

    Hey, the name's Justin if you didn't know,

    I work for a research company in LA, as an artificial intelligence theorist and programmer. Mostly my day consists of staring at a computer thinking as hard as I can about impossible problems. I program sporadically as I have good ideas, and surf compulsively when I need to let my mind range a bit.

    I also do a lot of writing and talking in meetings explaining things to people.

    Currently I'm a full time student getting my masters in Health Psychology. I work part time as a research assistant for our Criminal Justice Department, which right now means editing the hell out of a paper by my non-native English speaking professor.

    Before that, I worked for 4 years in abuse/neglect/exploitation investigation. I was an investigator for 2.5-3 years with clients who had mental illness or retardation and were allegedly being mistreated by staff at facilities, and then I worked for a little less than a year at the hotline for reporting abuse and neglect in Texas taking reports and sending them for investigation. The hotline was the most stressful job I've ever had - drastically underpaid, under extreme amounts of pressure, with little support from those above us. That was why I went back to school - I realized that if I continued to work for the state, I was going to stab my eye out with a spoon.

    Pat. Graduated university a year ago, been working as a marketing assistant in two different divisions of the same higher-education publisher since then. Gave my notice today, as I'm moving back to Boston after spending the summer in NYC, to co-habitate with the girlfriend and do fuck knows what. Definitely not 40 hours/week of xeroxing, FedExing and spreadsheet witchery, because that's what I've been doing and it sucks. Slowly plugging away at a comics script - it was going really well until I decided to move 200 miles for the second time in four months; the pace has lagged since then.

    I am a student a year left after this semester. I do odd jobs and such.

    I bag groceries.

    Sometimes I tell other people to bag groceries and I find ways to slack off while they do so.
    This makes me a 'supervisor.' I do this for 47 hours a week.

    I am poor.

    I fix computers and stuff for a living. Right now I work as a contractor for a large telecommunications company, and I'm pretty much their bitch. I'll do anything they ask, as long as they keep me until the week before Thanksgiving, which is when I'll be moving to Kansas City.

    I get to work around 9am, and leave around 3 or 4, and bill them for 8 hours @ $18.00/hr.

    I might have things at home that do not belong to me.

    Like this computer I'm using. For example.

    Retail and paper editing (or writing) get me enough money to live on while attending school. Also do freelance makeup work for extras (like comics and cell phone bills) and I occasionally get payed to act.

    at 27, full-time "non-traditional" student at community college in the mornings in the hopes of having a career teaching english overseas (in Japan or Brazil preferably)
    manage sales and help run in the afternoons for the most decent living I've yet been able to make (thought cocktail waiter at an Irish Pub came close)

    I'm Joe.

    I'm the second shift receiver at a locally owned foodservice broadliner. We sell food, janitorial and sanitary supplies, disposables, and such. Basically I check in product when it comes in. I also fill in at various positions when people are out on vacation and such. I was one of the night shift managers but moved to this position because I'd had my fill of overnights.

    Before that I bounced/managed at a second rate strip club. The pay and benefits are much better at the current job, and no one has tried to shoot and/or stab me in the warehouse.

    I'm Katelan and I make pictures. I also pose for them from time to time.
    I also lay in bed but I am not sobbing. I'm laughing.

    I work the night shift for a bank. I've done worse jobs.

    Hi, Adam. Currently I work at a call center for a major bank. Whenever someone jacks up their account and screams let me talk to your supervisor, I'm the one they're screaming to talk to. Which usually involves more screaming on their part, and being screamed at on mine. Someone once told me they were going to stab me in the face. Over the phone.
