It seems like a lot of us have very similar kinds of jobs.

you need more than one option up there. i'm a graphic artist that works with video/media but i'm also the IT guy. but i enjoy the design end much more (that is to say, i actually enjoy it versus hating the tech stuff) so i'm checking off that one

I chose graphic design, and that is part of what I do, but primarily I'm a freehand illustrator.

Right now, i'm a student and a work study in an admission office doing data entry and stuffing letters.

I'm planning on getting my masters in public admin and trying to use that to go into higher education admin.

Polls are limited to ten options. I originally had about 15-16 different choices, including more specific breakdowns of the computer/tech/media thing, but I was denied.

Both of my jobs and my internship are graphic design with low-to-moderate doses of programming, sales, IT (networking/repair).

Seems a majority of us have selected the last option. As for myself, I still can't decide what I want to be when I grow up so for now (and the last ten years), I am a high speed, interstate, freight relocation engineer.

Hmmm. I know there is more than one Charter employee on this board. I also know that there are people who work in retail.

I made it so you can add more options. There seems to be no way to allow multiple selections though.

At least you get into some entertaining arguments?

Absent-minded professor.

I teach poetry writing, short story writing, freshman composition, developmental writing, and African American literature. I also teach the second half of the western lit. survey. In addition, I oversee publication of the college's literary magazine and run a reading series that brings 3-4 authors to campus each year.

For the past three years I have served as English Discipline Coordinator, which isn't nearly as cool as it sounds.

I am in the "hospitality business". I am a front desk angent/concierge.

In the past week I have:
Dealt with Bill Cosby who decided that I was the only person to call for anything- from Kleenex to Croissants.
"William! This is William! My name is William, too!! Listen...I need a danish...a good one...European...no white icing...William, I need you to do this for me."
He's a nut.

I visited with Robert Plant off and on for a few days, moved his car to avoid people, directed him to decent coffee and rural Kentucky locations, and on and such. He was charming and we got along fabulously. We laughed at each other's jokes when nobody else would.
I don't care for Led Zeppelin but I liked him.

I also had to wake up a passed out guy in his room to tell him that he had missed his plane and that his job had fired him.

And this has been a less-than-weird week. A hotel is full of insane stories.
My first Derby at the hotel is coming up so I figure it will be pretty crazy and very soon.
