I am a Network Administrator & Customer Service Administrator for a small company that manufactures digital proofing equipment.

I get to not only do the geek-stuff like setup servers and help users, I also put in orders, coordinate shipping nationally as well as internationally, and talk to customers on the phone.

Where to begin? I once owned a bakery laugh then managed another one; was a mortgage banker (special loans), then worked for years as a temp doing clerical work.

In 1988 I got a job for a Fortune-500 company installing mainframe hardware, then PCs, then did Helpdesk, PC Needs Assessment, Email support, then Web support.

In that same company I finally ended up as a webmaster for a gigantic Intranet; I supported some very high profile websites that would be familiar to everyone here.

Alas, I was laid off in 2001.

Happily, I have been supporting myself full-time as a musician since then. I have a demanding job as a church organist and accompany many choirs.

who ever asks for permission to play a pub piano? Just sneak up and grab a few bars before being thrown out kicking and screaming "I'll be bach and when I am I'll be able to play!!!!" laugh

Hmmm... Please excuse me, it is grammatically correct, but "What.. is.. your.. job?" :rolleyes:

..is something from a robot's text book and I've been trying for years to convert my conference attending globe trotting students of English to the more switched on and current...

"What do you do?", "What line are you in?",
"What do you do for a living?"

So,... what.. is.. MY.. job then?

If you cannot infer a possible answer then maybe you need English lessons! wink

I started out doing electrical work but found it to be a tough job and now I'm starting a new field of TV production.

I'm looking to either be a camera operator in a studio or on-location or an editor as I'll be certified with Avid Express though the local college.

I don't even know where to start looking for work in this type of field though...

I am a full time PhD student (finishing thank God).

Other than that full time composer for concert hall pieces (got 2 commissions for 2008! and I'm truly excited that I can't stop mentioning it everywhere I go :p ) and composer for computer games (not films, mind you).

I also teach piano to a kid.

Now, how can one have 2 full time jobs and another totally part time, is a mystery even to me. :p

A programmer is someone who solves a problem you didn't know you had in a way you do not understand.

I taught English at our local high school for 34 years and retired in June. Now I go in 2 days a week to substitute, catch up on the gossip, see my friends, administer tests, assign worksheets, and leave all the actual WORK for the "real" teacher.
As for those dreams of having the time, finally, to play the piano? I'M THERE, BABY!!


I'm getting there--note by note.
