I'm a sound guy. I work at a pretty nice theater here in Portland. We get some cool shows. Just recently we've had Joan Osbourne, John Hiatt, Dirty Projectors, and Trailer Park Boys. It can be a fun job most of the time. Sometimes it sucks, but so do most jobs. Tonight we have Louis CK for two shows. It's going to be ****ing hilarious.
First year resident doing my intern year this year then Radiology next year. Not sure how I can work 100 hrs a week, still go to the gym very often, and have a social life but still watch our Flyers but I get it done. Thanks DVR!
I'm a junior at Rutgers-Camden, majoring in English and enrolled in the teacher prep program. I'll be completing a political science minor next semester. I want to teach high school and, in any free time provided (summers, etc), I'd enjoy getting into other things. I'm not sure what those are yet though. I largely dislike college.
My job now is at a kids party center in South Jersey. November 9th marked having been there three years. To be polite, I don't particularly care for it anymore, and would love something else to hold me over until after college. It's looking like I'll be back at J. Crew for the holiday season and, if that doesn't work out beyond January, I'll be looking for a nights-and-weekends job and hopefully subbing with regularity in local school districts. I'll tutor you (or your kids) in English if you let me.
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.
Glad to here there are jobs for history majors. Did you minor in business or something?
I'm in college. I'm a history major, but I'm a ****** student. I need to change that. I'm technically a junior credit wise, but it's my 4th year at school- I dropped a semester. I think I'm aiming to graduate next fall but, I could stay and maybe go abroad which would be cool.
This Summer up until the end of baseball season I worked very part time as a fanfoto photographer (the people who try to get you to take a picture during games, and then hand you a card afterwards- they have them at PNC Park too) at Nationals games. The company got a contract with the Redskins so I've also taken pictures at two tailgates at FedEx Field for them.
edit: I'm currently doing a history internship, but I'm not getting paid anything.

My step-dad and I own a small Inventory service. I hated it as a kid, but it's really a lot of fun now. I love the majority of our clients (got rid of most of the headache clients when I took a management job) and I like being able to provide a more personal service than the national companies can provide and having consistent crews in the field instead of a rotating door. I also like that we appreciate not trying to become massive because none of us want to deal with that headache in order to make more money. Keep it simple, treat your employees with respect and pay them a decent wage, and be ok with living within your means.
