What do you do for a living?

Just tell us a basic description of what your job. Like what exactly your duties are or anything else you wish to tell.

I personally work as a custodian at my city's couthouse... which isn't anywhere near as bad of a job as it seems. It pays $14 an hour (in a place thats minimum wage is $7.50 an hour) with a 50 cent per hour raise every year & a half or so until it maxs out at $18 an hour & it isn't much work at all. All I do is change the trash, clean the male bathrooms (3 in total), sweep & mop the floors every evening (in addition to a bit of spot sweeping every hour or so) & order any supplies that the courthouse may need (like soap, toilet paper & such). The rest of the day I just chill in my office (IE... a tiny room with a telephone, tiny desk & computer *which is what I use to place orders... although I do tend to sneak on the internet for a few moments at a time :D*) until I'm needed for something.

    @Juicius Maximus said: I work in post production for silly reality tv shows. The work can be fun, but also occasionally soul-crushing. Currently filing for unemployment, catching up on my gaming and focusing on my other job, djing. That one doesn't pay the bills, I do it for the love.

    I had to look twice at this... I was repeating 'dee-jing?' over and over to myself until I suddenly realised what you were saying... man, it's just as well it's Friday!

    Oooh, DJ-ing? I only got that now! I'm even worse than you haha. I thought he was adding a sound effect. "djing!"

    No wait, she's female, I'm not.

  • @Shauntron said: I make game videos for video games. My grandma does NOT understand.

    Yeah, my parents barely understand what I do. To be fair though, even I often don't know how to describe what I do.

    So then, what do you do? :D

  • My job consists of boiling eye of newt and tail of rat in a large glowing cauldron. I stir the ingredients over a wood fire for 9 to 12 hours a day.

    I'm really glad it's not just me that feels that way.

  • I manage the textbook department of a college bookstore in Michigan, USA. I'm in charge of employees working with the books, I make sure inventory is correct, set up the shelves, deal with book buyback at the end of semesters, I'm in charge of organizing and keep track of our book rental program, and I order odds and ends for the store like Coke and study guides. It's not my dream job, but it can be interesting, and it's fairly secure for the length of time I need it to be.
    I have a bachelors degree in English and History secondary (middle and high school) education, but I want to get my masters at a seminary and work in full time ministry someday. My wife is almost a full time registered nurse, so when she gets that job I'm going to cut back my hours at work and start school again.

  • @Steky said: I work as a 2D animator for a studio called BoulderMedia. At the moment we’re working on a really cool show for Cartoon Network but its finishing in November and then I have to find a new job:confused:

    Very cool job. My daughter loves to watch Cartoons, what's the title of the show?
