Full time employee at a record label in Boston... I do press, marketing, and distribution

It's great except I'm also a full time student... one year of this hell left. I don't have any free time.

I am currently getting my MBA at Pepperdine in Malibu. Loving the campus, NOT loving the Quantitative Business Analysis. BUT, I am going to study at Said Business School in Oxford in April, which is badass. And I'm taking the LSAT in four weeks, so I might be getting the JD/MBA, which is a well-regarded dual degree there. I am thinking about concentrating in Leadership and Managing Organizational Change, with a certificate in Social, Environmental, and Ethical Responsibility. If I do law school, I want to concentrate on Intellectual Property, Entertainment, and Technology. I was a Film and Media Arts major and Business Studies minor as an undergrad at Temple. Entertainment law might be fun (law school would probably turn me on or off), but I really want to be upper management at a major studio or one of their corporate parents.

I am the chemist in charge of the microscopy laboratory at a specialty chemicals company. I develop methods to look at our products and sometimes the images are really cool which keeps it interesting. It's pretty much nothing like what I did for my Ph.D., which was atmospheric chemistry, but it's got its perks ($$ being one of them -- being a grad student and post-doc were lean, lean times). Next time you use conditioner, think about how I've probably imaged the way what you're using deposits onto your hair :-)

Graduated college in May (with a history degree, so obviously I'm in high demand in the professional world). Now I'm working as a Research and Marketing Analyst for a reverse logistics/e-commerce company in Maryland (DC area), which is just a fancy way of saying I sell **** on the Internet. I do market research and determine how to price all the inventory for sale, so, really, I'm directly responsible for how much revenue the company makes, which is pretty cool. I don't see this as much more than a 1-year deal, it's basically just a stopgap as I figure out what it is I really want to do with my life.

Wait a second. You're 21 (as you wrote in your first post in this thread) and got married in 2005, when you were 16? Or am I completely missing something?

yep. I'm always looking for drivers. 70 hours a week, crappy pay, my fleet is aging, and I'll underappreciate the heck out you. Interrested?

I have my own company. Not very large but big for my industry. We mostly haul roundwood but also some biomass and chips to area mills from the bush.

It's probably wise that your education has a pretty specific focus, it will get you to work faster. My degree can branch into a dozen different industrial careers, all demanding 5+ years of experience (which I don't have).

I should have just gone into nursing or something. That industry is always booming.
Mine can branch off into two categories, electrical (essentially a industrial electrician) or instrumentation. My city has the largest oil refinery on the eastern coast I believe (biggest in Canada), along with a bunch of other factories/plants, plenty plenty of jobs for this field (even for a small city). Nuclear, coal, bunch of other different power plants along with processing factories out the ass.

You'd probably find employment in my City quite easily i'd think. My course has 100% hire rate over the last 10 years, and starts around 32$/hr Canadian (out of school). But the learnin' curve has been steep, my school prides on the 100% figure, so they try and fail out a lot of students for the colleges reputation.

That's actually kinda funny.

Many, many moons ago, when I still needed a bike with training wheels and stuff, my best friend and I always used to pretend we were Batman and Robin at school recess. And yea, I NEVER got to be batman.

But we didn't "fool around" then either, so no chance I'm fooling around with you!

Doing my PhD is physiology. Currently sitting at a conference with over 30,000 other nerdy people (who are all partaking in talking science while I am off to the side bruising hfboards). Should be finished in the next 8 months or so, then I will be an unemployed bum with several slips of paper for wall decorations. Probably will go back to school for medicine. Might as well go for a full 14 years of post-secondary education.

Im a junior at the very "scenic" Rutgers Camden campus. Going for degrees in finance and accounting. I write a prospect blog located in my signature if you guys wanted to check it out. Also just got a job working for a scouting company in the area scouting players from age 6 to age 15. Notable players who have gone through this hockey company are Matt Duchene, Colby Cohen, Kevin Shattenkirk, and Nick Petrecki.

I want to either be a scout for an NHL team, or likely work for the government.
