I've had to deal with some real jerks - either sources or supervisors and co-workers - but I don't think print journalism is that much worse than any other job in that respect.

I'm a poor college student, but I'm also a cashier and a camp counselor.

i disagree, cause if you make one mistake - everyone sees it. whereas in other jobs its not noticable by as many people.

here were talking about thousands and thousands of people.

those evil natured robots
theyre programed to destroy us
she gotta be strong to fight them
so shes taking lots of vitamins
cause she knows that
it be tragic

That is true, although I still deny any celebrity status.

I am going to the premiere of that movie "How to lose a man in 7 Days" or whatever it is called on Sunday. I am sure I will have sufficient dirt to report...

Well I went to college and got a degree in Criminal Justice thinking of going into probation and stuff. Ended up that I had to wait and so I've been working in a school district as a "PARAEDUCATOR" in other words: a glorified aide in a Special Education class. It's an interesting job let me tell ya but I love it!! My co-workers and even the principal at my school want me to go and get my credential to become a teacher! Hmmm I must admit I am considering it!!!

In high school I was a cashier at Menard's, now I'm a poor college student and... um... part time librarian sort of, I think I'm techinically "auxillary services."

[job description]
When people send donated books(donated books are tax-deductable) or the other libraries (Purdue has 14 of them) clean out their books or periodicals it all goes up to me... I work in the attic in the building with the library offices. It looks a lot like a basement/warehouse, no windows, I'm the only one up there. Anyway, I sort through the books and tear out people's names, security tags, and put them in boxes according to subject, and in November we have a booksale. With periodicals I shelve them and write down what volumes we have and we sell them to other libraries. Minimum wage, 10 hours a week, no evenings, no weekends, I show up (or call off) whenever I want and I can play my music as loud as I want. Love my job
[/job description]

This summer I'll be an assistant to a contractor.

I am a web developer for the big ISP people either love or hate. What I work on lets people register for our service over the web. I am also going back to school this semester and might do that again full time in the fall.

If I ever make my driving license and move to the U.S., would you sell me an olive green big jeep military style with 20% off from the original price, Sir?

Big Grin Menards, and the evil company Digi works for and Alir Rose shall run some day

I was a print journalist after colllege and cow disease has a very good point.....your mistakes are noticed by thousands.....

I am currently out of work (but wroking...I'll get to that) Marketing professional (worked for the same huge company Digi works for...till I got laid off)

So, in the meantime, I have a manual-labor job working for an airline on the ramp - and I LOVE IT! I park the planes, load/unload them, de-ice, run the bags, clean the planes, hang with the crews, push the planes back, take peoples tickets, etc. etc. etc. - and get to travel for hardly anything (allowing me to hang with interferencers!!!!).

I'm a retail manager because I don't know what I want to do with the rest of my life besides own a boat. Before that, I was a poor college student who had to put gasoline on her credit card to get to my two and a half hour a week job of basic ice dancing instructor. Here was a typical night and the reason why I don't do much of that anymore:

Parent: Why did you fail my daughter on Dance 1?
Me: Because she didn't know the steps to the Dutch Waltz and she was doing outside-edge swingrolls on her inside edges.
Parent: Is that really a reason to fail her?

I take enough abuse from customers on a daily basis; I don't need parents after me too!
