What do you do for a living?

Recommended Posts

As I'm reading these threads I find myself "asking what do these people do?" and how old you are too...

 

I'm 32 and I've been a high school Biology teacher for the last 9 years... I teach in the ghetto, and over the years I've had some great students and some terrible students... I've had students that have Super Bowl rings (JoLonn Dunbar - Saints), and students in jail for murder (one for killing a bum, and one for killing his girlfriends 9 month old baby for having an"accident" in the bed), and at least 2 that are dead. (1 in a drive by, 1 was suicide)... plus numerous other stories that I think are funny, but most people are disgusted...

 

Overall I love my job, and although there are some rough kids (maybe 10%), the good kids by far make up for them... Watching them walk across the stage is a great feeling...

 

 

So what do you do?

Age 40 Community College Biology Professor.

Did 5 years of 7th grade life science and 5 years of high school biology. Rough middle school, easy high school. Finally after some part-time night class teaching at the community college, I laned a full-time job there. Actually just got tenure for my third (and final) time.

 

Best job I have ever had.

 

Wait, I just turned 41 last month...Damn

That sounds like a pretty nice progression. I've been working with new teachers a lot lately and I really like working with adults. I was thinking of getting my CAS and becoming an administrator, but college sounds interesting...

It was nice to get back to college level instruction. Plus I like the mission of the community college. It's a second chance for some and a way to save some money before transferring to a 4-year school for others.

Plus, in that past four years, I have not made a single parent phone call.

Damn I don't want to make you guys feel old, or maybe I just feel young. I just turned 21 and I am trying to finish school right now. I have been working in a insurance agency for almost 3 years now. I started out as a summer intern and now I've worked my way to a fulltime employee with benefits. I plan on becoming licensed in commercial insurance and maybe focus on the ag side being from Cali.

21 with a full-time job with benefits you are much "older" that I was at 21. You are a lucky man to be able to move through your 20's with a real income.

I bagged $12K/year as a grad student for most of my 20's.

Nice work!

Thanks. I can't take all of the credit thought cus my Dad is the president but after working as an intern I found myself in a new position after there was no need for my job and then I still found myself with a job after a current lay off. i guess working hard really does pay off since I am the youngest in the company but I still have managed to keep my job even though I could of lost it. It helps that I enjoy what I do but to be honest I never thought I would want to sell insurance at the age of 21.

Alright, I'll tell. I work at one of the largest on-course Golf Pro Shops in the US. I have been employed there as a Club Fitter and Sales Manager for the last 7 years. Before that, I was an Assistant Professional at a small 9 hole course for 6 years. I have been working in the Golf Industry full time since 1995. MGS is one of the places that I like to come to to get current information. You would be surprised how many times I would read something about a new product on MGS, and mention it to a sales rep, and they haven't got a clue about it. Speaks volumes to the quality of information that comes from this website.

I'm a 17 year old high school senior. My favorite 3 college choices for next year are University of Delaware, Lafayette College, and Lehigh University, if anyone wants to know.

Absolutely. It is one of the first stops online for me every day. I think that MGS might be up on our work computers more than real work....

United States Air Force, 14.5 years. I am a UNIX system administrator/Network Administrator. I do a little programming here and there when i want to automate a task that i do often. Basically, i support high end technical computing applications and do a lot of "making peoples lives easier" type of tasks. I also do some/dabble with network security/forensics on the side. I guess i am a geek all the way.

 

I have been depolyed twice and would not trade the experience for anything.

 

I really like this board so far, hopefully we can keep it growing with good people.

Two things:

 

1) no wonder you say you don't get to play much golf....you're in the golf business (LOL)

and

2) I remember when I was in retail and kept up with equipment too.....I had the same experience -- those guys never knew about what was coming down the line until pretty close to launch. Guess they were too busy pushing the current product, lol.

 

We got some things in common. I worked retail golf, and also spent my time working at courses and clubs as the counter jockey.
