'I work in lab maintaining quality control and keeping an eye on the composition of said materials, if need be adjust to maintain top quality value and performance. '


As to what the product happens to be, I can not under contract law speak about it more than I have.

You guys ever see that big camera attached to a crane when watching a sporting event or concert? I operate that thing.

I'm curious.. is that a full-time gig? Do they shuffle you around the region to different events, or do they give you other odd-jobs in between the events to get enough hours?

Most often its freelance and work for a production company since it is a very specialized skill. But I work at a TV station where it's a full time gig. Occasionally they send me out to cover events.99% of the time I'm indoors covering news. Not very exciting. I did work on a movie once but it was some low budget POS not work mentioning.

I'm actually thinking about becoming a certified drone camera operator. I just gotta get off my lazy butt and do it. I know I would excel at it.

Currently, I am in graduate school. Once I graduate, I plan to do computer engineering at a large company.

I'm currently finishing up high school but after that I plan on joining the US army due to college benefits. (which I otherwise wouldn't be able to pay for so yeah.) The job/MOS I hope to get in the army would be 92M (Casualty and Mortuary Affairs) which deals in recovering deceased soldiers. As for the reason I want to go to college is I aspire to eventually become a neurosurgeon because I have a great interest in the field overall and I think it would keep you on your toes to be saving lives. Of course it does require a lot of schooling but I believe it would be worth it.


Well even if it's just for the college benefits it's admirable to see someone serving their country. And further bonus points for wanting to become a doctor afterwards.

Neat.

Apart from some part-time stuff I did while still in school I went straight into the engineering and tech field, so it's interesting to hear what it's like for people in other lines of work.

I just stare at computer screens all day - very dull. I'd have lost my mind years ago (don't say it, I know you're thinking it's already too late for that) if it weren't for music and audiobooks.

And this ladies and gents is the reason I am glad I don't have to work for a living.

Our city has been hemorrhaging industry jobs several years in a row now.. I was learning under my grandfather to become a licensed plumber, but business has been terrible. Prior to that I worked retail... now I don't even get a call for interviews.

I have a wide range of skills without a real specialty. I'm currently learning graphic design using only open-source software and an old ass Wacom Graphire 4.

I worked with several engineers over the years. They always seem like a weird bunch of people. Not trying to be rude but is this a correct generalization or is it a coincidence that all the engineers I've worked with are a little odd? Sorry if that sounds rude, I don't mean to imply you're a weird person.

There's probably a degree of truth to it, I've long since come to terms with the fact that I'm eccentric.

I think ultimately our weirdness boils down to that we tend to be a bit more numbers/object focused, whereas most people are socially-focused. Mathematicians and physicists probably suffer from the same thing, but to an even greater extreme. (In college even I thought that my upper-level physics professors were weird as hell, and I really like physics.)
