I am a legal researcher/drafter of legal documents. I work remotely for a firm in Edmonton, doing real estatey stuff, and I take projects from my old boss in San Francisco, drafting motions and writs and briefs for her criminal defense practice.

aw thanks guys! It was good! The first day is weird cause you don't do much, but get shown around and try to get all your passwords and ID cards and things. So it was fine. We get free lunch in the cafeteria, which is pretty sweet. There is salad and roasted vegetables and roasted potatoes, so that worked out pretty well for me! the building is huge and confusing, so i am going to get lost for a while. I have 3 friends that work there (which is how I got the job) so that takes a TON of pressure off!

I do kid's overnight camps and day camps teaching them about life in the 1840s in the West. We partnered with OMSI (oregon museum of science and industry) last year and that made it even better. The main goal of the camps is to bring in at-risk youth who might not ever have the opportunity to visit an urban National Park. I'm also in the VC and contact station and answering questions and meeting people from all over.

My favorite part is hanging out with 30 (feels like 200) kids who are all five years old and wanting attention and telling me about all kinds of wacky stuff and wanting to hold my hand and sit by me.

I'm an assistant book publicist! I help my bosses with their high profile authors and I am the publicist for more low profile authors. I do tons of stuff from pitching to media to get my books featured/reviewed as much as possible to bringing authors to interviews/media appearances to planning author tours.

I make a broader contribution to society than could be fully recognized by money alone...but my educational background is in computer engineering (undergrad) and electrical engineering (microelectronics technology - thesis was with amorphous solar cell materials testing). Before marrying, I worked for a mathematical software company.

I work as a care assistant in a home for older people. I don't think I want to do it for the rest of my life (it's my first permanent job and I've only being doing it for 7 months) but at least I don't need to worry much about being made redundant. And it is a very important job where you can directly see the point of what you're doing.

I don't know what else I would do. I loved volunteering for the bicycle recycling charity, but don't feel I have the right sort of brain to be a paid mechanic. I liked working in the mail sorting centre, but I expect I would get bored doing that permanently. Children are just as stressful as older people with more running about. I would like to have the time and energy to grow food but there is no way I could be a farmer. Sometimes I think I would like to be a postman, but I think my family would think that isn't challenging enough for me and the pay isn't great. I'm wondering what it would be like to train guide dogs, but I don't even know if they do pay people for that.

You guys do such important work! We have a FT dietitian in our department, and she's integral to our care planning in ICU. (Also, I have an RD that I see every few months. When she's not working in her outpatient clinic she works at a PCH. Also, she's completely awesome and she's helped me a LOT.) HATS OFF! And good luck!

Oh, I just saw that last week on the Rick Mercer Report. There is a facility in Ontario where they train guide dogs. There were a lot of people around and at least some of them had to be paid staff. That would be a cool job.

Good luck with the new job, idji!

I didn't actually answer this? Whoops.

I'm a part-time network analyst for a big corporation. That means I configure switches and APs, but rarely troubleshoot, and no design. I also do a fair amount of discovering and documenting where our stuff is. And this is my last semester as a full-time student for a BS in management information systems. I've already been hired as a business analyst after I graduate, but I'm hoping I can stay in networking because this is a pretty sweet job, and all the people I'm working with are fairly awesome.

I started as a network analyst (WAN vs LAN), I didn't configure too many switches but many, many routers then later on VPN servers, firewalls, proxy servers and such. I do some network design now but it is just something on the side when we are working with familiar/simple environments. Otherwise, I'm firmly entrenched in InfoSec now which means most people don't like me.

I am a graphic designer and artist. I currently work full-time as the in-house designer for a research organization at a university, but my position is being ended in June due to changes in grant funding. Hoping to find a new full-time job since not having health insurance scares the crepe out of me, but if I need to I'll just take on more freelance projects and maybe find something part-time. I'm lucky to have that option which puts me in a better position than most people who get laid off!

(If anyone needs any sort of design work shoot me a PM!)

I'm a florist! I know, you'd think I put all the super gay professions in a hat and chose at random with somethin' like that! It's totally in my blood though, I was bred to be the ultimate flower arranging machine.

This was actually the result I got on a high school careers test. I still haven't attempted to make a hat, so who knows, maybe it was right and I've just been too lazy to uncover my unparalleled talent just yet.

I'm a financial analyst at a large bank. I basically take numbers and make them look pretty. It's not a bad gig - great pay and benefits for 40 hour weeks with minimal stress - but I can't see myself doing something so unfulfilling for the rest of my life.
