Re: So, what job do you do?

I've got an interview tonight, so could be working as a Nightclub Photographer in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent :) If I get through the interview of course.

OK, scratch that, they've not got back to me so I'm assuming I've not got it :(

So that'd be me being an unemployed student again then?

Non-Destructive Testing Technician and Plant Inspector. It involves inspecting pipework, welds, tanks and other industrial items.

A lot of people in my trade inspect rides during the close season at theme parks. I just work on boring oil refineries and chemical plants, I would love to try and get on a theme park!

Left college a month ago, finishing with straight Distinctions.

Currently, I do about 20 hours a week for Pizza Hut, Front of House - So I make bare tips, nearly double my wages, which is pretty damn good!

I also promote my locatal commercial station Atlantic FM at events. And recently I have started a 10 week placement for the BBC reporting on local music. Fun times.

I also present for my local hospital radio in my spare time.


:D

When i'm not there I have a second job as a photographer, and have done commisioned work for my local newspaper, and have done advertising campaigns for several companies. I also regularly have stalls at craft fairs around the midlands where I sell my photography work.

And when im not doing all this, i'm a total party animal heh.

Im stuck with all the national curriculum for now. :x

I'd love to be a ride host / ride op... But I would also love to do something in the arts department of Merlin, it seems like my Ideal job. I mean drawing, rollercoasters/rides, theme parks. For me, thats a perfect combination. :)

As for a, you know, realistic job, (once I'm 16) anything that I can get. :?

I sell alcohol to very sad alcoholic people, at Costcutters Off-license. :|

And only slightly more interestingly, I'm also a live sound and studio engineer. :P

I just recently lost my job doing research for the Royal Fail and training new staff. I'm now set to begin a job for a certain energy company, keeping records of communication between engineers and customers.
