What Do You Do For A Living?

I am bored at work, so I thought I'd start a thread to which most everyone can relate.  

I am a CPA, specializing in entertainment.

What about you?

    I often think there are so many folk I know from here who I count as really good friends but I have no idea what they do for a job. Haha. Anyway, I work in an office EA/PA/Office Admin/Office Manager/Contracts Admin etc depending on the month/year. I organise office shit for others who are better out doing what they do best basically. :grin:

    I'll be serious too...

    I have been a resident advisor at a Job Corps training center, department manager of a college bookstore, used to sub and teach 5/6th grade, worked at our local health library before it moved out of town, was program assistant and tutor for Human Services at our local college, was a member of a use book co-op for four years.  I now own my own used book business (dealer sales, a few on-line sales and book fares), am a small-time vinyl record dealer and help my wife and her business partner in their bookstore (which is in its 34th year).
     
    Looking at my work history list, I see I have also held 24 other jobs since my first one in high school.

    I told my wife this evening that I'm thinking about trying something new.  Not sure what though.

    I am currently a PM for a miscellaneous/ornamental metals installer.  

    Before that I traveled the world as a superintendent for a concrete company that specializes in building prisons. 

    In my younger age I was an Alaskan fisherman for a few years.

    Anything you lose from being honest
    You never really had to begin with.


    Sometimes it's not the song that makes you emotional it's the people and things that come to your mind when you hear it.

    September 1 will be the start of my 17th year teaching history.  I also coach soccer and baseball.  Side jobs include power washing, officiating track and field events and I tell a story on a pirate ship.

    I'm a university administrator. It's a pretty good gig. Working on a university campus and being surrounded by youth and eccentric academics, in an environment that is so much about freedom of thought and expression (yes, that is still a real thing at most universities in Canada) is good for the soul.

    Thanks. I appreciate that. It was a pretty drastic change for me. I used to have a company that repaired electronic equipment, both commercial and residential. I sold out, retired  (for two years) and was a stay at home dad. An opportunity to purchase a hospital for my wife arose and I jumped on it. 

    So far, it's been a very busy, productive experience. It can be very emotional too.

    Nice!  Oh god, I miss working on campuses.  That's the best work environment!
