What is your occupation?

Wasn't really sure whether this one was done, but if it was, it may not be relevant to now as you may have different jobs etc.

I just got an apprenticeship for a patisserie chef, as well as being a university student, and was just wondering, what is your profession and how did you decide that is what you wanted to do?

Until recently I was a cashier at Tim Hortons. I'm on indefinite leave until I feel like coming back though, focusing on school for the moment.

I am an Associate Customer Communications Specialist for a Health Insurance Company.

It paid more than when I was a Medical Assistant at a doctor's office, and I knew I couldn't work at that job anymore as I was unhappy there and was treated like crap from my boss. I am a much happier person since I left.

But it's not what I plan to do for the rest of my life. I'll no doubt have to find a new profession once I move to the UK. :)

Right now I'm employed at my food service job at my university for a main source of income, but ive begun to apprentice with my old teacher on field work to build up experience so I can apply to a CRM company and do Archaeology full time.

I sort of stumbled into it, as most Archaeologists do. It requires A LOT of tedious work and you have to like being exposed to the elements on a regular basis. But damn I love being outside digging through the soil and finding things people left behind.

Currently looking for a job more or less just so that it seems like I'm not doing nothing.
In reality, I have enough money saved up that, barring unexpected giant monetary requirements, I think I've got more than enough for my roommate and I to live off of for a year or so, and thus I'm in waaaay less of a hurry to find a job than I actually should be... <_<

Until recently I was an employee of Jersey Mike's Subs until I quit because A. I hated that job and B. The amount of hours they gave me were so low it literally wasn't worth the gas it took to drive to and from there each shift

Right now I'm a full time student.

However, thanks to gaining some internet fame with my webcomics, I call myself a "Cartoonist" and with my new series iPod Interviews, I'm also gonna start adding "Game Reviewer" to my list of jobs with quotation marks around them.

I'm in school to get a degree in Film and Television and I'd love to write for TV one day, but I work on my comics as both a hobby and sort of a plan B. I do it because I love entertaining my fans, and the fact that I even have fans makes me feel like I'm slowly getting myself onto the right track. I'm launching a new series this November that could very well end up being my full time job in several years.

Aside from that though, I'm always looking for part time jobs to scrape up some extra cash.

I sit at a desk

in an office

I scan and file paperwork

and I hang out on the escapsit

and there is a vending machine on my floor that has cheap energy drink

......:D SCORE!

Must... fight... troll... inside....

AAARG! He wins!

I'm going back to school to learn to be a radiologist :)

I am a server at a steakhouse. It....pays the bills.

I knew that someone was going to make the Sparta reference, so I thought of something more clever.

I am an officer of the LEU!

Working at a Tim Hortons :(

I do two jobs at a University.

One is part of the Audio Visual Group who deal with the equipment in the lecture theatres. Currently undergoing a "crunch time" as some of the rooms we were to upgrade haven't been finished yet.

The other is at the print shop, where I sell course readings to students and print off their work.

Busker! Eff yeah!

...

Actually, busking is one of two things that came up on a test at school that was supposed to determine our life's professions. The other was 'Chinese Herbalist.'

I believe that I made the correct decision.

Armed security, though my future in said profession is shaky at the moment due to medical concerns rising from injuries I received during military service. The VA is being nice and slow about getting that sorted out...
They did recently xray me to confirm I have no chunks of metal floating around in me. Turns out I don't, which is a surprise.

I'm in sales for a major rental and credit company at the moment. Retail and Customer service is pretty much my chosen career path at the moment, as I really enjoy it, but I'd quite like to get out of face to face service.

I'm an independent game developer. Or at least, getting there. I have no games under my belt, but I do have one about 15% through planning/production, which I'm doing entirely by myself so far. I'm still in college for 2 more years so we'll see how things work out. My main emphasis is going to be on art and design, so likely modeling or concept art if I get work at a studio.

I'm a Lobby Sheriff, Masked Crime-fighter, Former Olympian, and all round Righteous Dude

Currently a student, but I'm one year away from a Materials Engineering degree. Given my specialization, I'll probably end up working for a government lab within DARPA or the Department of the Navy.

Office monkey.

Data entry, making cups of tea pretty much all the time, sneakily posting on the Escapist.

I work nights at a some-what local Target (same county but about a half-hour drive away) as part of the flow team. My job is basically to help unload the trucks and, push product onto the shelves in the store part of the store. I have a bit of training in back-stocking but luckily, that isn't my primary job. I started in a store in GA where the pay and hours were a bit fewer but there I would take a day or two every so many weeks behind the cash register. Not so much here though, where I start as the store is closing and am finished a couple of hours before the store opens back up. The job fits my sleep schedule.

I also draw up comics but until I get some better software (and possibly upgrade my PC in general...and a hard drive wouldn't hurt) I can't really produce enough comics/drawings to make much of a name for myself (except for the fetish stuff I draw which doesn't earn me money but which has earned me over 15,000+ hits on Deviantart...I'd love a dollar each from all of those guys and, gals...)

I work in the constituency office of a British Member of Parliament. I don't do anything particularly important, just casework for constituents. At least I'm not an intern anymore though!

Currently a biochemistry undergraduate, and about to take an industrial placement where I'll be a software tester for pharmaceutical programs. Hopefully I can get into the QA side of things & move into testing products that are completely unrelated to science, as it doesn't really interest me anymore.

I am a Student/volunteer. After I moved back to the UK I wanted to get a job, but knowing how difficult it is to get even the most basic jobs without connections to people in the workplace, as well as my not having any real work experience scared the crap out of me. So I went and became a volunteer for a charity coffee shop. With my new work experience I'm going to try and get a paying job, because frankly, I don't want to edit this post to claiming benefits/starving artist.

Director at a CBS News Affiliated Station in Florida.

I work at the city archives.

Unfortunately I am having to state claiming benefits/starving artist, but I am also trying to start my own Hip Hop Promotions company with my friend, got our first show in 8 weeks, just trying to organise everything. Should have some good acts though, hopefully these guys are playing:

I'm currently a student, studying Games Development. Part time wise, unemployed (for now).

Currently I'm a full-time student, studying Japanese and Linguistics. Don't know if I'll get a job in the near future, maybe go to a summer camp or something like that

Full time student at a second rate community college and part-time child observer. I work at the YMCA in the daycare, where my day consists of simply looking at children and making sure they aren't dead, dying, or about to get into a situation where that becomes possible. It's similar to certain particles that behave differently when observed, except when you don't observe children, they bash their heads in with building blocks.

temporary service repair technician. since I was f-cking 16. my plans for a better job kind of stalled when I graduated high school this year and don't have the drive to continue on in academia.I hate my job.

I'm an audio engineer, and I do live sound for a church and some theatre work around my area when I get the time. I'm doing sound design for a project right now, and I dabble in some recording when someone needs me for that.

Just looking for a job outside my state since there's nothing here. Maybe New York or something, but then again I haven't really looked that hard since I've been busy with projects.

The company I work for manages large Tech Firms Partners via a few call centers
I'm the catch all IT guy for one of the locations. I also manage & Admin our SharePoint 2010 Farm.

Always busy and always learning.

part-time child observer

Sounds like your job is to be a pedophile.

OT: Unarmed security guard, working on getting my armed license so I can get paid more and actually do security work.
