I wouldn't mind a job in Information technology, but I would like something where I could express my creativity.
I was thinking about 3D Environment Artist since I'll still be dealing with computers too. Also, since I gravitate toward technology my family is the first to come to with their computer needs, like you. Be it a virus, what PC parts to choose, or how to set up printer/router/wifi. I'm not really a fan of the "latest gadgets" since they all seem to be a money grab anyhow, I'd rather lower all my bills and keep the money.

I would want my job to mean a better experience for others in the area I choose, be it in a game or real life. I like helping people solve issues.

What does it means to others?

1. "Wire people" who make mechanical parts work.

2. Convenient scapegoats when things go wrong .

3. "Wire people" who have their shit in the way (a lot of space is needed for wire pulls).

4. "Wire people" who put conduit and boxes up.

5. Obnoxious good-for-nothings, even though super important.

6. People to go to when the mechanical crews should be addressed (we get confused for being mechanical).

Well, i build car seats.
So i guess my job means to others that they get to sit on a comfortable and decent looking seat when they travel in a car. Even though they are made with cheap materials and iam half asleep when iam building them.

Job Title: Construction Laborer

1. I look dirty through the whole work week, covered in rust and mud and oil and concrete dust. Attracts some attention when I buy lunch on my breaks, seems to make people uncomfortable.
2. My work clothes are always tearing, most of them are little more than rags now. Combined with the dirt it really gives me that "sad and homeless" look - as my mom described it.
3. People think I'm just a dumb grunt. In reality, I was doing pretty well in university studying biology but had to drop out for financial and personal reasons.
4. Constantly covered in bruises and small cuts from carrying things. Usually on arms and hands. Gloves help, but don't survive a week. Not sure if or how this affects what people think.
