I work as Network Manager at a high school here in Staffordshire. It's a great place to work in ICT - we're one of the fore-running schools in the country, and I'm one of the first people in the county to pass the RM Certified Network Manager exam. I teach some guitar and bass on the side. Previously worked in retail management, as a science technician, and played bass in a couple of moderately successful bands for a while. All good :)

Well, here's an update:

I now am a freshman in college, am teaching lessons to about 4 kids, and am doing cleanup at a butcher shop!!! Yes, I think I win for the worst job. At least the guys I'm working with are cool. That's the only reason I haven't quit yet.

I have been a police officer for 24 years.
12 years in Patrol,
7 years on a Federal Task Force in an undercover assignment,
1 year as Commander of CID
2 years commanding the Professional Responsibility Section (IA)
Presently commanding a desk in the C.A.L.E.A. Accreditation Section, and waiting for retirement. ;)

Great job, not the best pay, but a pension most in the private sector would kill for.

I manage a drum dept! Organising stock levels, staff rosters, meeting with suppliers, day-to-day retail, cleaning, promotional layouts etc

Im also responsible for the updating of my local drumming webpage (www.drum.com.au), sponsored by the store I work in. I must create and submit lessons/reviews once a months. I have also taken on the responsibility (honour?!) of organising and promoting local drumming events in our community - Its really getting people vibed about drums around here, its awesome to see.

Its a busy work, and often I take the work home with me, but I couldnt ask for a better position to be in!

I work in a retail paint store. I sell mostly residential and commercial paint products, but I also do all the mixing and custom color matching. I work with 4 other people, each of which are awesome people, and I have lots of great customers. The life of a retail monkey isn't too bad if you're in the right place. I'm also currently going to school to become a graphic/web designer. I have my own business doing that, but it's tough to work full time, go to school, and run my own business in my plethora of free time. I'm also a dad to 3 great kids and a husband to a woman who's as off kilter as myself. Oh yeah, and I play drums with some guys here and there.

I'm still at school (last day on wednesday!!! 24 days till exams are over!!!) but i the holidays when I'm home i usually work at the local wool buyers, pressing and carting 200kg bales around with a hand trolley. And painting the brands off old wool bales. Hopefully, I won't ever have to do that again. Trying to get into an Engineering and Industrial Design double degree at Monash university next year; just gotta get 90 or above in VCE and pass an interview. Getting a bit nervous now...

My usual day Job is driving. I say usual because at the moment I am having to take an enforced break and I am having to work in an office at a desk and its driving me MAD!. Normally I can listen to anything I want to and tap along to. On breaks or while waiting to unload/ load I could get out my sticks and practice pad and have a dam good thrash. Now I can't even tap a pen without causing an offense. I can't wait till I can climb back into the cab and drive off with the volume up loud. Only 4 months to go to regaine my sanity! I hope I can make it.
