What do you do?

What do we all do for a living? I know we have at least one police officer on here and some great photoshop artists, but let's see how varied the occupations of Camaro5 members are...and what we WANT to do.

I'll start.

Currently:
I am a Sound Designer and Mixer in post production for television. I work with The National Geographic Channel, Discovery Channel, PBS, FOX, and others.

Dream Job:
I want to get in to sound design and mixing for games and feature films.

Currently
I work the front desk at a land development company. (It's not as bad as it sounds, I play chess with the boss all day)

Dream/Future Job
I've just finished my microsoft certification training (MCSE, MCSD, and MCDBA) and once I finish all the exams, I'll be moving on to Web Development and eventually SQL database Administration. Once I build up enough of a financial backing, I plan on starting a digital media crew with a focus in creating concert DVDs.

Police officer.

Dream Job
This is where it gets tough... I love being a police officer and this is a dream come true for me already. But, if there was something else I could do, I would have to ask for the artistic ability and knowledge that Chip Foose has. I, too, would go back and build my own shop. I'd restore the REAL musclecars of yesterday like Chip does on his show. To see an old Coronet, Olds 442, Impala, Camaro, etc come from the grave to be new and improved once again...it's beautiful. I'd love to take part in that.

Currently: I'm going to school to be a Technology Teacher...you know, the cool teacher that everybody liked, cause he actually liked what he taught .

Dream Job(s): To be a military Pilot, but my eyesight is less than perfect, so no dice. Secondly to be a Commercial Jet Pilot, I'd love to fly, but story goes that pilots have very little consistant family time...month on, month off - you know...Third, and probably the most wanted, would be something along the line of what TAG was saying, except I'd want to do current vehicles, Hell, I just want to work on cars.

Current Job

Communications Operator Secured Facilities (NJ Dept. of Corrections)

Were generally just called Comm-Ops.

I have no idea how to describe what that is. LOL Monitor radio transmissions, control all movement (via gates and intercom/radio transmissions) within the seperate facilities in the prison, log everything that goes on, keep track of the institutional inmate count, create officer/Sgt/Lt schedules, keep track of and log in/out keys and radios, locate inmate mail, sort staff mail into appropriate mailbox, process all outgoing/incoming mail/packages. Among other things. Oh, and yeah, we answer phones too. :o

No, I don't have to do ALL that at once. LOL I mostly work the mailroom, but am all over the place within the prison.

Dream Job

I never really had a dream job. My dream job would be to hit the lottery and never have to work again so I can concentrate on reading the hundreds of books in my personal library, read the thousands of comics I have in my basement, play all the video games I haven't had time to play in the last 10 years. Oh, and drive around in my Camaro. LOL

I am a Maintenance Electrician/Journeyman working at the General Motors plant in Janesville, WI. I maintain and troubleshoot/repair the robots, building electrical distribution systems, process controls equipment, and just about anything else that has wires going to or coming from it.

Dream Job

At 18 I joined the Navy to be an electrician and have been working at that since then (39 now). I knew in the 7th grade that this is what I wanted to do so I guess I have my dream job. If I had to pick something else I would choose to make a living of all my hobbies and keep them as hobbies because once you turn a hobby into a job I think that some of the enjoyment dissapears.
