What's your job?
 
just a general thread to see what people actually do for work/study in real life. I'll start first.

Currently running a family owned bakery in Australia. No added sugar cos i'm sweet enough, and yes I do have nice buns... i've heard all the jokes.

before that I was a police officer for about a year.
:great:

Being your own boss sounds good to me lol. Nobody gonna tell you what to do xD.

I'm currently studying at University, going into my 3rd and final year of my degree, studying in computing and mathematical sciences. Doing allot of multimedia things, such as website designing/creation, games, programming, filming etc.

@xfaderx.. a fellow aussie lolz, not sure if I knew that.

anyhow im a payroll team leader who have 5 ppl working under me, the weird thing is when i started out some of these people were my supervisors and now I am theirs. Its strange how things work out.

A challenge for me is changing attitudes of the more older ppl who report to me, they dont like a young person telling them what to do.

but all in all its a great job, cant wait for that big lotto win and retire young and early lolz.

LadyChamp 06-22-2011 05:32 AM

Today : working at the shrine notre-dame du cap as a security guard.
before : i pretyt much tryed many things, was working at metro. i worked for a few computer business, but they all ended up throwing me away for really stupid reasons.

in all seriousness, you dont do a job you hate, you do it for what it brings you and i'm not speaking of money. because even though money is a good thing at first it will decline real fast motivation wise. and now i just love my job... sometimes i wish i wasn't working day shifts, but other times i'm just glad to have to. great deal for me.

I'm a college student in the UK (college is not the same as university in UK), studying:
  • English Law
  • Psychology
  • Business
  • ICT
Currently graduating at Advanced Level (A-Level). After college I'm going to go university, although I don't feel like leaving college!!! :(

ChazyFresh 06-24-2011 04:31 PM

Whats the difference between college and university in UK?

In UK, we receive different certificated qualifications than in the US; therefore there are several factors which are different.

In UK, at High School we are graded with GCSE level qualifications (which are mandatory via English Law - we have to go to high school). We leave High School at the age of 16.

We can optionally continue our education on further at Advanced Level (A-Level), which is a lot harder and a bigger step up than GCSE. A-Level education is provided for free by the Government via our taxes. A-Level students usually range from ages of 16-19, although I will be leaving college at 18, and so will majority of the other students, as I (and they) will hopefully get the grades they want the first time. If they don't, then they have to resit the year, hence why they may leave at 19.

However, at college you do not have to get A-Level qualifications, you can get all other types (which are easier IMO), such as Apprenticeships (where you actually try the job you want out, and the employer reports back to the college with the student's progress).

After college, there comes University. Unlike all other education within UK, you have to pay for University, which initially costs 9,000 ($14,375) to get in (due to the new Government legislation). At University is where you graduate and I believe it lasts approximately 3 years, depending on the course.

Haha' sorry to type so much.. didn't know I had it in me. :)

Some things you may want to take a look at briefly:

By too many rules do you mean laws?

Totally reviving this thread.

I'm a contractor. I consult with my aunt's reality firm to find new jobs and, in the company that I work for, I'm a floor manager in the main resourses building. I no longer do field work, but I do go out and bark orders a lot. =x My people wub me. I've been doing field work since I was roughly 13, and I still do under the table jobs, but for all intents and purposes, I'm done building ****. Early back problems.

Aside from that, I'm also a musician, as some of you already know.
