One of the first kind of jobs to go in a bad economy is Science and well, that is where it went.

With one kid, a three bedroom house, two cars, and my own land, I could be doing better but considering I skipped college, I'm not doing to bad.

Dammit, I feel like I'm wasting my time in school.


Don't think like that!  My girlfriend's nephew graduated from Clemson University on May 13, 2011 and at the age of 23, he'a ALREADY making more money than I ever will.  If you can take a shortcut to where you want to be by getting an education, there's no way you're wasting your time.

He majored in chemical engineering, if you're interested.  Apparently, they're in demand because he instantly had two jobs waiting for him.  Even when he did summer internships in 2009-2011, he was making more than me!

Web Developer (mainly front end) for a ticketing company, that's not to say I like it but still.



Hmm, pie.

I work in corporate finance for a healthcare umbrella corporation. That sounds sinister, but it's really not. I basically review and pay our charitable commitments and sponsorships, which leads to educating people on policies and common sense. I'm also a full time student studying Software Applications Development (I graduate next March).


You work for Umbrella?

Coolest job ever.

Dammit! I knew I wasn't subtle enough. Despite our past, we're really looking to improve our image.



I am the Playstation Avenger.

   

I am an accountant

I'm a Senior Consultant at one of the Big 4 professional services firms. I help companies streamline their business processes and provide them with solutions to avoid external and internal risks. It's fun on a good day, insane and hectic on a bad one.


maybe your company can help the global governments with there problems, but i'm sure your company would face some resistane not to mention the governments money's no good lol.

That would be an interesting dynamic. But believe me, the governments do not want an impartial and objective 3rd party sticking their nose in government affairs. Now don't get me wrong, we don't just work for private companies, we also service public companies too (government, ministries, etc), but the scope of work is similar to working with private ones, as in, we are stream-lining their processes to make them more efficient, etc. But that doesn't mean we can walk into the White House and start ordering Obama around telling him how to fix the debt crisis. That's where the government draws the line. Unfortunately though, cause they could seriously use some impartial judgment on how to fix their mess cause all they do now is play the "whose penis is bigger" game.

Doing a PhD in classics. Best time of my life to be honest.

That's wonderful. What is your focus? And what do you see yourself doing once you graduate if you don't mind me asking. Classics is a very interesting and broad field. It allows for people with many different tastes and interests to jump aboard.
