What do you do?
« on: May 10, 2017, 01:54:48 AM »
I'm new here and this is my first time creating a new thread in a forum, so let's see how this goes

I see a lot of posts alluding to the careers of members here, which has me curious just what everyone does for a living. 

So my question is:  "What do you do for a living?" (Company names not required, just line of work)

I'll start, I am a Nuclear I&C Technician. Basically I calibrate/repair instrumentation in nuclear power plants.

Next?

Ugh my browser does not want to cooperate w/me today... I am a director for a local (but nationwide) consulting group and I run their "Content, Collaboration and Cloud" practice, with a specific focus on the Microsoft technologies in that space, like SharePoint (on-premises) and Office 365 (cloud).  I also run a user group out of the local Microsoft office that focuses on those same technologies. So every time someone here says "I'll make a Google doc for that" a little piece of me dies :( j/k :) Next!

I have a really glamorous job in the accounts payable office of a municipal government. Basically, I review and enter invoices for payment, get mad at employees for paying sales tax, and I also do all the travel approvals and expense reconciliations for City employees (keep your receipts!).

Not really a dream job, but I like it, it's pretty stress-free (most of the time), and steady. I used to work in the City's utility billing office. I was the person who decided whose water got shut off. It was... not pleasant.

I am the property manager for a medium sized apartment community! I also live on-site so it's always a laugh if one of my tenants catches me leaving my house in full cosplay!

What are you, Worf? Do you tremble and quake with fear at the approach of combat? Hoping to talk your way out of a fight like a Human? Or do you hear the cry of the warrior, calling you to battle, calling you to glory like a Klingon?

lol  :) I build databases for a humongous multinational to pay the bills. But my career is a filmmaker. This fall I will start attending graduate school in SoCal.
