What do you do for a living, and do you enjoy what you do? I am a truck driver and I love it as a career. Use to be a manager but got tired of always having people look over my shoulder.

I'm a Nurse Practitioner for the past 4 years now, I enjoy my career but some of the doctors I associate with are lazy as hell, I hate it but at the end of the day, the pay makes up for my complaints. I think this is the only career I'll be doing from now on, and I also hustle on the streets as a nice side job for extra cash at hand.

I work a retail day time stock position.

If you request a pick up in store purchase. I'll be the one getting the items, and logging it into the store computer systems. Restock the store. Checking our inventory for items we may have in storage. And bringing it to you. Retrieve high value merchandise not allowed on the store shelves. Doesn't pay a lot and were out of season, so no unlimited hours anymore. But I got kept, so at least I have some income coming in my bank.

I'm also a truck driver. I've been doing training and other office work for my company for the past year but it's not for me (nor is the lack of money), so I'm heading back out on the road full time by spring. My company is putting me into a brand new Peterbilt 389 with a Cummins X15 Efficiency Series.

This is pretty close to what it's going to look like:

Headlights will be 359 style and there probably won't be as many chicken lights.

I'm a physiotherapist and I have my own business and write novels (for myself and family) as a hobby but have recently made the decision to seek publication when I finish the project I'm currently working on and hopefully down the line making it my main career.

For now I'm a freelance videogame localisation person (JP-EN translation, EN proof-reading, linguistic debugging etc).

There's a big change happening to my job role next week though, including a move to Japan.

That must be pretty cool. Someone is like "Oh man I cant wait 'til 2018 for this new Intel chip" and you are like "wait until 2023..." except I imagine you can't, NDA and all.

Keep up the good work. Seriously. Bought some stock recently :P

New times are coming. Unmanned vehicles attack. It is better to train imagination - this will be a source of money.

Research assistant in an electrical engineering phd program. I write papers detailing designs of obscure stuff like fpga architectures and hardware accelerators for AI/deep learning algorithms. Basically make a circuit design and benchmark it, lots of coding and circuit simulation in hspice. My department has tried to get me to teach undergrad classes but I always weasel my way out of that.

When I graduate I want to work in a research lab at one of the big tech companies like Intel or Qualcomm and work on chip architecture.

I spent the last 6 years as a full-time university student (bachelor and masters) but also worked on the side as a research assistant this year. I'll be serving in the military till October so I'll worry about getting a job after that.

Product Lifecycle Management. Basically software to track projects from the initial idea of creating a new product, design, manufacture, and retirement.

That movie was fun but awful.

As for my job, it's a weird job to have because it's not structured in a conventional way. I don't have a normal office that I go to every day, but instead I go to where the client is. Often that's in other states (or sometimes other countries) so I fly often for work, and I work from home the rest of the time in my home office. I work for a very large consulting firm so my personal employment is stable even when I'm not staffed with a particular client. It's a highly demanding job and you have to be flexible enough to take care of whatever problems came your way and navigate the corporate politics of every new client you work for. What I do from a day to day perspective has changed many times over the course of the decade+ that I've been here so you have to be able to grow and adapt your skillset constantly but the compensation is generous in exchange for that lack of standard routine.

@xblackerrthing: im a truck driver too, biggest attraction, not dealing with people as often as you would in an office job or any other. So yea I know what you mean. I do enjoy it, but as you may know it can be the worst job in the world when things don't go right.

I was in the auto industry for a while. I worked at Ford MoCo for 5 years. After that I worked for a tier 1 auto supplier. I made parts for the Dodge Viper. I was doing metal finishing and sheet metal fabrication. Basically when body panels for cars came out of the press I worked the imperfections out of the metal.

At one point I was making $18 an hour. I have a severe illness that hit and I haven't worked in 10 years. I'm on disability. I now make in a month what I use to make in a week. I'm one step away from being homeless. I'd like to go back to work but I'm in a messy situation with my medications. They're expensive and I have to have health insurance at all times. If I go back to work and get laid off or fired or lose my health insurance for what ever reason I'd get really sick. I can't chance it.
