What is your occupation?

I just thought that it would be cool to know what everyone around here does for a living!

I work at an IT help desk. I assist with computer problems and fix computers. It is a customer service position so I am constantly interacting with many people throughout the day.

What about everyone else?

At the moment I am an Admin NCO. So I'm behind a desk making sure people get paid and if they complete a school or course I make sure they have it in their records and get credit for it.

My "title" is Administrative Financial Manager. Although that title is deceptive because I do a large amount of human resources work along with all my financial duties. A typical work day for me starts with my walk to my medium sized office on the second floor of a twenty year old building. Where I push papers: reviewing financial reports, cash flow and management, the occasional meeting and deal with floor workers complaints in my free time. I'd say the more interaction with people I have throughout my day, the worse it becomes.

I am a shipper/receiver/material handler/inventory control person/dude/guy...

Basically I sit in this tiny closet/office all day and when trucks show up i either load or unload them, receive it into the system, bring material inside for jobs and make sure inventory is correct.

sounds like alot but it really isn't i spend most of my time surfing the web/posting here.

I work in a wine store/liquor store part time. My real profession is "student" but I like working at the ol wine store as well. I don't know nearly as much about wine than the other people working there but I can give some basic advice.

For the last 5 years I worked in the IT field and did tech support, supporting both hardware and software issues and network issues as well but during the last year I quit and currently took a job with Canada Post doing second level customer service. I hate my current job with a passion but it pays well and just sticking with it because I'm currently in the process of applying for a finance position with Canada Revenue Agency (a government department which pays extremely well) but their hiring process is like over a year long making you take the dumbest and easiest GED tests imaginable, which is very frustrating to say the least.

I work in retail and go to school, but by night I dress like a bat, talk in a deep voice and fight crime with the help of my geriatric butler.
