Title sums it up.

What do you do? Do you like what you do?

I am a legal secretary, trying to work my way up into a paralegal position. I also take paralegal studies classes, and criminal justice courses on the side at the college.
I love my job, as I have always been interested in pursuing a career in the legal field.

I am interested to hear what made you decide to go into your career/job, and if it you like what you do as I do.

I work for a company called CCG. I'm nearly a 3rd year trainee.
It's has two sections, CCG3 and CCGIT.
The G3 section does civil works, like setting up telecommunication services for new estates and smart home wiring and configuration... I don't do a terrible amount of work with G3, not yet anyway.
The IT section does all kinds of computer system work, including programming (I'm working on a system for a local council), networking and IT support and services for small to medium sized businesses.
We also have a government contract to install Medical Alarms for the elderly and disabled, which is crappy work and I hate doing it.

I love my job though.

I work the front desk at a hotel and work at my dad's restaurant. In the summers I do maintenance and load trucks at an asphalt plant
I didn't order assholes with my whiskey.

Can't disclose the name of the company, can't disclose the nature of the job, can't disclose who the clients are.

I'm a computer programmer. I love programming - probably too much but I hate programming for companies. Most of the work that programmers do is clean up the messes that the last programmer made.

So I'm currently looking into becoming a photographer and starting my own business.

Is it hard? Generally those kinds of jobs pay well, I heard.

You are a private military contractor. Or you work for the government. If I guess right, you have to wire me half of your annual income.

My job does require a computer. In case you were wondering. Without it, I am doomed. =)

Really? I work in a similar field although my products include human beings.

Youre either a pot seller, or steroid distributor.

It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

Sometimes it's easy. Sometimes it's hard.
And if you look at my income on my profile, you'll see that it doesn't yet pay very well at all. >_<
18 months and I'll be fully qualified. Should be better then.
