So, what dose everyone do for a living?

I work for Volkswagen. I am on the quality team that inspects the cars after they are built, but before they are sold to our sales company.

Previously I did 4 years active duty with the Navy, and I am still currently in the Navy Reserves.

I am also in school working on a degree in Information Systems: Multimedia and Visual Communication.

What about everyone else?!

Thanks,
Steve

Nothing right now, been laid off for over a year by a construction company. Reason unknown, but probably because I know there games with the pay and hours. One of a few 100% US citizens who work there.
Economy is horrible. Applications out but not hearing anything back. Been trying to move my cards for sale to help pay stuff.

I'm 15 and work at TJ Maxx..doing it just to have some extra cash and do something else than baseball. I'm taking marketing classes now so I'm hoping to work corporate as a marketer for a big company or maybe own my own business.

I work in a call center for U-Haul, taking reservations and answering some of the most random questions ever. I am also enrolled at a University studying Psychology. I wish to someday be a licensed counselor.

I am substitute teaching at the moment. This is all preparation for me as I plan to re-do my student teaching this fall and get an M.A. in teaching (I have successfully completed most of the program, but I obviously can't get the degree if student teaching doesn't work out next time in the fall).

I teach the 6th grade here in Texas. I'm also working on my thesis and upon completion I will have my Masters of Education. At that point I plan on starting my doctorate in history. Not sure what specialization of history quite yet, though.

Good luck! What do you plan on using the doctorate for - teaching at the college level? That was my original dream back in 2007-08, but finances and self-doubt, along with a bad market, led me to drop the community college teaching program I was in at the time. If student teaching works out next time for me in my current program, I'll be certified to teach English for grades 5-12.

Yes ma'am, that's the plan.
