I run my own little company. I'm mainly a freelancer who does: Graphic design, web design, web coding, MAC OS X Developer, Vinyl signs, logo signs, t-shirt design, photography, computer engineer and networking etc. Rather wide skill set i have that ranges around computers.

I have a degree in computer science.

My work spreads across the entire IT Spectrum.


I even know how to install telephone lines, sky boxes and satellites. It's the family business so i picked up telephone engineering really fast when i was younger. As i said i freelance so i only work when i need the money.

Well my lines of work have changed a bit over the last few years but ild say im pretty settled now.

In the week im a builder/shopfitter working for my mates, mates company. We do all sorts of work but one of our main things that we do is outfitting Tommy Hilfigure shops all over the country and the Tommy Hilfigure sections in every House of Fraiser shop in the UK. Were currently converting an old car garage in Burton on Trent into a Tanning Salon which will take me nicely upto Xmas, however ive gotta go to Bath and Cardiff tomorrow to do some small jobs...but thats another story.

By the weekend i put my music hat on and i organise and promote Drum and Bass nights along with a couple of mates. I started doing this as i enjoyed doing it, and now i make money from it so its a bonus, and i have also had the chance of meeting and chatting to some big big names and key players within the UK Drum n Bass scene as at the end of the day, there just buisiness men!, alot of the nights are based in Tamworth, however i do some freelance work with the Custard Factory in Birmingham on quite a regualr basis aswell. This usually puts my sound engineering skills to the test to make sure the sound system is boomin and the dance floor is shakin!

That is all :wink:

I'm currently studying AS-Level Art, Photography and Information & Communication Technology.

I've been looking for a job for over a year now and haven't ever got any interviews, it's not like I'm one of these chavvy teenages either, it's like shops just don't want me. Also without getting any EMA payments either how am I supposed to pay for school books, equipment etc. My parents can't be giving me £20-£30 a week, my parents are in enough money worries as it is, when my friends are getting EMA money there out each weekend having fun and I'm home watching XFactor, anyways starting to go off topic.

Saying that I'm going for a job interview for Greggs this Saturday :P I hope that I get this job, if I don't it will really put me down. If that does fail I might be able to get a little job in the Royal Gwent(our local hospital) thanks to my parents working there, it'd only be sorting paperwork out and delivering them to wards.

Not sure what I'm doing with a career, Photography is my strongest subject and I'd like to do something with that but am not sure what careers are out there with photography. I am very geeky with photography and find it all very interesting and fun so would love to go on further with it. I haven't got long though to decide what I'm going to do as a career. I've got my eye on a photography degree at the moment but need to find out what careers/jobs are out there first.

Yeah, there's a similar topic like this isn't there that was made this year? I remember writing some random stuff on there, well quite a lot's changed since then anyway.

I am a salesman for a national electrical retailer. I won't tell you what it is but it does begin with 'C' and doesn't end in 'urrys' :?

I also run my own business part time doing wedding videos and the like.

I'm an 'incident manager' for an IT outsourcing company (working on their Westminster City Council contract). It's pretty much entirely a non-technical position. I hate computers, I hate IT. I don't understand them and have little interest in them. Towers Times, checking cinema times/theatre listings, Digital Spy and reading the latest Charlie Brooker columns is all computers are good for as far as I'm concerned. My job mostly consists of spreadsheets. Spreadsheets. And more spreadsheets. Anyway, it's not really what I want to be doing but it's nice having such a regular income at my age as I realise many don't. I've set myself the target of being out of this job and doing something more enjoyable/fulfilling/that suits me more by Alton Towers opening next year.
[size=90]For some things there is no rational explanation. There is no way out. There is no happy ending to this story. Welcome to the unknown. Welcome to eternal darkness.
