What does everyone do for work?

Recommended Posts

Just curious as to what kind of jobs people have on here, there is so many members from around the world on here I thought it may be an interesting topic. I'm a foreman for a fuel company at a fly in fly out camp in northern Alberta Canada.

I've been retired for about 1 1/2 years. Had been a structural steel detailer (draftsman) all my life.

Actually old enough to have worked on a drawing board with a pencil! (as opposed to a computer for the last 15 years.)

Disability Examiner - State of Michigan. I read medical records of Social Security Disability applicants and determine whether or not they qualify for benefits. I guess I can also call myself a part-time freelance writer since I've published a few articles and plan on doing more.

 

Before that I was (briefly, and regrettably) a long-haul truck driver, before that a high school English and Social Studies teacher (don't ask me how one goes from the latter to the former; I'm still trying to figure out what happened there myself.)

 

All-time favorite jobs: garbage man (age 18--worked 3 hours a day, got paid for 8, got me in the best shape of my life and riding around clinging to the back of the truck was just fun), and GED/Life Skills teacher at a county correctional facility.

 

Great thread, I'm curious to read more responses.

I have been retired almost 4 years. What ever I once knew about computer information systems is now obsolete. I was a ski technician for about 25 years, and after that I operated tackle repair center. Best job ever was a float guide on the Snake River, but that was 50 years ago. Still would rather be floating a river somewhere than working.

 

I still "float" rivers here in Florida, but they never go anywhere.
