What do u guys do for a living?

Hey guys, I'm a Avionics Technician at a helicopter service company, its pretty cool repairing or building helicopters. but sometimes i just wish i could go back time, be back in highschool and apply for university for herpentology. I love learning about reptiles, and sometimes i feel that i should have gone and done it. sigh... The only reason i went for something else is cause my dad though i wouldnt be able to make a good living as a herpentologist or reptile vet... so i looked else where. I want to go back but i feel that i'm already set. At 20, i thinkl im too old. I can always learn on the side... here!

So anyway what do u guys do for a living? any of you breed snakes for a living?

I'm a stay at home Mom to six wonderful children whom I homeschool. I love doing what I do, although it doesn't pay much and I hardly ever get time off. LOL

Although I currently get up at 4 am for work, it aint to bad. I work for Ruger Investment Casting; a division of Sturm, Ruger & Co. I get to cut, grind, blast and polish metal for 10 hours a day. It can be fun, it can be tedious...but all pays the same.

At home I make some Norse jewelry and artwork and carve waxes for me dad. He is a silversmith and owns Urweg). He makes some of the greatest Norse Tribal jewelry in all the land.

I just finished this Viking knitwork here, which when finished up will look a bit more like this Viking Plait bracelet.

I am a Workforce Admin.

That boils down to me sitting in front of about 10 computers making sure all 1000+ agents are doing what they should be doing while at the same time making sure we are meeting our clients needs.

Its a fun job and we deal with some great companies like HP. On the side I paint and sell pewter miniatures.

I dont breed reptiles to make $$ but if I can sell some babies to help pay for my hobby and get new additions to the collection that great. I have been keeping reptiles (full time) for just over 10 years now and love every bit of it. I have kept everything from house geckos to black & white spitting cobras and my real love is in arborial vipers. Always looking to improve on the Trimerisaurus collection.

seriously, aside from being a pain in the (_|_),

I spend my time at home with my daughters. My youngest starts JK in the fall, and then I will be hoping to find some work. ( just factory work or retail ).

I'm in the middle of a veterinary assitant course, which I have no intention of pursuing anything further than that in that field, but am forced to finish. In September I begin a 3 month personal trainer certification program.

My old job closed down shop (Kris's Reptiles & Travelling Exotics Roadshow) which left me with my weekend job working coat check at a classy bar. That job is seasonal however so it's closed until the cold weather starts up again. I was working as a cook at another place up until the other day when I quit

So pretty much for the moment... I'm unemployed

I work in a supermarket, as the vegetable and fruit dude. Gonna start a course after the vacation as a veterinary assitant (well it sounds the same, not sure if it is the same ) It will take 3 years to finish that. It will be a homeschooling thing, so i still be working at the supermarket while learning.

Up until a month and a half ago i was a secretary/book keeper, that was until my mom told me that if she couldn't find someone to help run her store. She was going to have to sell. So i went back to manage and hopefully inherite in 4 years her store , a Dairy Queen. It's not what i expected, but i will live comfortably with several headaces from many teenage kids. LOL

This is the reason i don't post on ssnakess as much, because i'm working over 50+ hours a week. Glad i'm not on salary, yet.

Well, I am 17 so I have nothing decent under my belt. I work at a pet store on queen st. in Toronto, and do custom paintings for individuals (which I still do, message for details, portfolio images, and/or references :P)

Q. What's brown and sticky? A. A stick!

Well, I do production work for a company called Camco here in Kelowna, where I pre-solder carbide tips for any kind of saw you could ever imagine (skill saws to band saws, you name it)! We ship all over the world and I love what I do. The pay is fantastic, so are my co-workers (though a couple I could certainly live without) and my bosses are the funniest people ever. For example, we always have huge Christmas parties and the owners get together to do "skits" for year it was porky pig santa, dorff santa and "Austin Powers" santa and we all got turns going up, getting gifts (while being embarrassed) and having our photos taken. Yup, I got it good there. The hours can be crazy, running up to 63 hours per week, but the ot pay kicks butt!
