I'm a self-employed web... person. I design, develop and promote websites. I also write copy which I really enjoy. At the moment my partner and I are developing an online game that will be used for promotions. Great fun :-)

Before becoming self-employed I worked as e-commerce manager for a really big porn company. And before that I was office manager at one of those investment banks that have been in the news lately. That was an experience I'll never repeat...

With an education in History and Archaeology, I, of course, work in Retail Management.


Actually, I quit working in retail. I just couldn't take it any longer. I am currently contemplating what it is that I really want to do while looking for a sane M-F, day-shift, less-than-sixty-hour-a-week job.

I'm a high voltage journeyman lineman/troubleshooter.
I work alone and get a company bucket truck to keep at home.
One meeting a month is when I see other people from the company and that's too often!
Now if I could only figure out a way to avoid customers, I'd be perfectly happy.

It was fun the first couple of years but then the management got all big headed and started hiring consultants of the "banker" type and it all went downhill from there. So I got fed up and left. It was quite the experience though.

I'm a baker. I make fancy desserts at a small restaurant. Sometimes I cover other areas - getting food ready for the servers to take out, running the till, serving, etc.
I rather enjoy my job. My coworkers are awesome (except for the two I hate, but don't we all have those?) and I actually like dealing with customers. Another bonus is being able to work with my husband, who is the Chef.

Yeah. When we eat at home, we eat well.


I was getting ready to start my own business as a cake designer earlier in the year; my plan was to be up & running in September. Unfortunately that's on hold as the economy has caused business to dry up. People just don't want to shell out for a $700 wedding cake right now.

I am a Biotech/Pharmaceutical Recruiter - which I like... except for my dilemma - I do not agree with 'medical science'/FDA/chemical products, etc. :shk:. But it pays well.
I also freelance (and get paid for) - Web content writing. Which is what I would do full time if I could get the opportunity.

I am a government attorney. Just the local kind of government.

It keeps me busy, so I like it okay. It's not nearly challenging enough, and I get frustrated at the ridiculous phone calls that I get every day. For example, the other day someone called me because they wanted to know what the "code" was at the bottom of a postcard that they received. It was a certified mail tracking number. I don't know why they thought this was a question for an attorney, but it at least made for a good story.

Other than that, my job is relatively boring and monotonous. I try to use my position to do some good, though. I treat everyone the way that I would want to be treated, and I am very fair. I try to help people out of trouble, if I can... even though my job is to sue them. Hey... I'm on salary! I don't get paid per case or per win, so I can do that kind of stuff!

I don't want to do this forever, though. In fact, I have just about had enough of the mindless work, and am considering a move to a different kind of lawyering.

I have the possibility of getting hired as an ADA in a nearby city. I never really wanted to practice criminal law, but it would be a change, and would challenge me. I would get a different kind of experience, which I always think is beneficial.

To tell the truth, I'd really like to be a judge one day. I am a very fair person, and I want a job with some variation. Plus, it would be nice to wear that robe, and not have to worry about having a jacket that matched my pants.
