    Default What is your Job or Career?

    If this thread exists somewhere, I apologize now...

    Anyways, we are all here because we love or used to love VH. We all come from different walks of life in different areas of the world.

    I think what a person does for a living says a lot about a person. It doesn't define one, but since most people that work full time are at work more than their awake time at home, it plays a big part in who we are.

    So, since I'm the jackass that started this thread, I'll go first...

    I work as an Appliance Salesperson for a mom and pop store here in Oly. I sell washers, dryers, ovens, refrigerators, etc... Been there a little over three years now...

    Next?

    Sportsradio Producer/Detroit..

    I had no idea what I wanted to do out of college in 1995. I took an internship to work at an all sports radio station and worked my ass off to get hired after it was over. I left for 2 years to join the corporate world in 1998 but found myself wanting to go back. I've been doing producing/production/reporting and some bit stuff for sportsradio for about 8 years. Most of the time it's fun but I feel a little trapped sometimes. At least it's recession proof. My wife and I also own a desktop publishing business we run from home.

    Midnight shift tool & die operator - made snowmobile windshields and those little plastic shelves shoes sit on in shoe stores

    Alright Wray!
    I see you put your money where your mouth is (though you've been
    conspicuously silent lately) - and I respect that. Not that you'd give
    a grunt. Anyway, props.

    I am a General Contractor.

    New Construction, remodels, additions, tenant improvements, insurance work, Custom finish work, solariums, you name it if you want it done we will do it. Oh I never said it was going to be cheap, all I said was that we could do it.

    Family business, My Dad and I are partners, my main job focus is on estimating and dealing with clients. It a a EXTREMELY GLAMORUS JOB, its like being a movie star.
    ((Just My Two Cents))
    And thats about what its worth.

    Currently working in medical insurance for doctors in the cases when patients sue them for unlawful practice. Basically, I'm on the phone with them all day regards to each individual's practice coverage. Can be fun most of the time. Sometimes you do have to deal with the occassional Dr Becker which ain't fun.

    Lately, I've been dealing with a member who goes by the name of Dr Hibbert.



    Career wise, would love to break into film.

    I help people like OLO make it easier for them to do their job. It is not as much fun, like being a movie star, but I am a popular dude where I live.
    Just go for it!
