What do you do for work / Do you like your job?

Postby uNicedmeMan » Mon Aug 10, 2009 9:28 am

Just trying to get a feel for different careers out there.

I'm a 24 year old Excel / Access jockey working for a large hospital. Could be better, could be worse.

How about you?

I am a District Manager over 10 Picture Me Portrait studios. I pretty much don't like it.

Parks and Recreation Asst. Director. Some days I love my job. Some I hate it.

That sounds pretty cool to me, how did you get involved in that?

Freelance Photographer/Unemployed Bum...it's feast or famine but I'd have it no other way.

Perl/ASP/SQL monkey for a medical research lab.

I hate it.

The place is like Office Space meets Benny Hill, and I can't wait until my contract is over.
I threw Wizards before they were cool.

Job: Environmental consultant
What I do: Majority is focused on lakes dealing with invasive species & writing lake/plant management plans & treatments. Also do wetland delineating / reporting and some work in the contamination field (think old gas stations).

Yes, I love my job. The pay kinda sucks, but I get to go all over the state (WI) for work, work outside 80% of the time (mainly from a boat), plus for wetlands I get paid to wander around through the woods (if it's wooded), ticks suck though.

I'm a software engineer for a Fortune 100 medical software company. I started working here 2 years ago. Like most engineering jobs, there are good days, and there are bad days. We'll see where my future is going to take me after my annual review next month.

IT/DBA/general computer bitch for an insurance company. I like my job because working for a small company is nice and some of the IT stuff I do is really fun but some of it is really boring. I am probably going to try to get a new job soon that is more Web Design/ Web App oriented because that is what I enjoy the most.

Senior Database Administrator(Oracle 9i/10g, SQL2000/2005/2008, MySQL) for a Bioanalytical Testing Company. I've Been working in Databases for almost 15 years now. Love it for the most part. I am all about the data :wink: I work with datasets in the 100's of TB's on a daily basis...get to work with some really powerful computers too.
If the object of disc golf were to hit trees, I'd be 1100 rated.

Sounds like a lot of the folks that are on this board could help the PDGA's problem of the processing times of ratings.

I've thought about going to work for a medical research company here in town quite a few times. My masters is in Computer Science specializing in Optimization and Heuristic Search methods.

Perl hacker, LAMP developer. Beats a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, but there's not a day I leave here that I've got the kind of smile on my face that I used to get from bike messengering or doin' construction.
