    Your occupation?


    What do you do, or what do you want to do?  Yeah personal questions I know :-)

    I have been in the IT industry for 10 years.  Started with some 4GL, client-server stuff.  Worked with the energy traders, did programming, implementation, and support.  Recently I have been doing SAP HR and working in the US.  I live in Canada and the flying got to me.  Now I am back in my igloo and looking for local work.  IT stuff, and financial services...

    DAMN!! We have some educated bros here.  If we put our minds together, we could probably make something really cool.

    Im finishing my degree (be done in a few months) - The major is called Human Computer Interaction.  Its a unique field with alot of focus on usability issues.  Anyone want to get me a job?  Some of you guys work in IT.  . 

    On the side I run my business (Lifting Advantage) - hence the Usnic Acid.

    Looks like we have a pool of knowledge here

    For me, I have my first degree in Chemistry (B.S) and second in Mathematics (B.S.).  I am currently finishing my PhD residency with an analytical chemistry focus (part time).

    I also work as a Quality Manager for a battery manufacturer and specialize in stationary lead-acid applications.  I have also worked with VRLA and gel battery applications.  My journey from coop student has allowed me to hold positions in process engineering, QA chemistry, quality engineering, and finally quality management.

    Then, of course, there is BDC Nutrition

    I finish my residency in December and then I am an official PhD candidate   After that I start my research into sonoluminescent spectroscopy.  I may also branch this into something along the lines of fusion mechanics.

    Okay I am going to ask this because I am not sure but is sonoluminescent spectroscopy using sound to cause Luminance in elements? Btw, the fusion mechanics sounds cool.. kinda a cross between chem and physics.. not that you can really seperate the two

    Your in the right ballpark...it uses sonic waves to induce a liquid sample [medium] to cavitate.  The energy that is released causes the classic excitation that is associated with normal spectroscopy.  The only difference is that the detector used has to be sensitive from the UV range all the way up.  This means nitrogen charged so it doesn't absorb that low.

    Wow, we have some educated guys here.  I kinda figured being that the discussions here go beyond grunting (unlike some other boards).

    Keep it up Manbeast.  I've been there.

    I am an Engineer.  I graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, CA with a Mechanical Engineering Major and a Minor in Business.

    Very cool stuff! I'm gonna have to do some reading up. During my one year of Grad School I majored in Analytical Chem with a special interest in instrumental analysis. Tested at the Ph.D. level during their placement exams, so didn't have to/couldn't take the most interesting courses. The one Faculty member who was working on anything interesting to me had a glut of students already, and told me he wasn't looking for more at the time, but I could put my name on the waiting list and maybe in a year or so... I was bored outta my gourd and had just gotten engaged, so I dropped out. I was there on a full-ride academic scholarship, so I figured that if they didn't want me (and they certainly didn't act like they gave a hoot), then screw 'em!

    I'm an Industrial Hygienist. Errrr, that's an Occupational and Environmental Health & Safety Professional. Working at a Biotechnology research lab. We do safety testing of bio- and traditional- pharmaceuticals as well as contract manufacturing of viral theraputics (gene therapy drugs and live virus vaccines).

    Got a B.S. in Chemistry - graduated at the top of my class and got a couple of academic awards at graduation, many years ago. I think I minored in Partying, but that part's kinda fuzzy in my memory hehe. I was Pre-Med but medical school was not to be in my future. (Long story.) Went to Grad School majoring in Analytical Chem for a year, was bored to death, got engaged, and dropped out to start a family.

    Working for my current employer more than 15 years, I started out with 2 years in QA, auditing and inspecting scientific studies and reports of the results thereof. Then switched to EH&S/Industrial Hygiene. Have testified several times before government regulatory agencies and been appointed by the Governor to a local government council where I use my skills and knowledge in public service as I represent the industry.

    Whoopdee-do! I'm just me. Single father, working my butt off to make a living and care for my family and myself. Quite intelligent by comparison to the average guy, but it doesn't impress me, so I don't use it to impress others, usually.

    Wow! I was thinking that I was going to start haning out here but after reading this thread I feel as if I don't come close to belonging.

    I have gone to college but never finished. I was a professional public speaker for several years and now I'm in sales. I am married and have 3 wonderful sons who take up a lot of my time of course!

    My new endevour as of late is as an assistant coach in a wrestling/mat club for 5-12 year olds. It's great and very rewarding.

    I'm going to go back to the dumb peoples board now!

    Well....

    I can see that I am just the "low man on the totem pole"....

    Here I am, the first year college student, my major is Kinesiology and a minor in Nutrition....

    I am probably going to go for my Masters in Kinesiology/Exercise Physiology, and maybe some pharmacology and bio-chemistry on the side

    Then here comes the crossroads....either become a United States Marine (lifelong goal) or become a badass personal trainer, or teacher (maybe teach w/ YJ )

    And then, of course, I am a Lifeguard during the summers

    I manage the IT department of a law school (one campus, there are 2). General administration and managerial duties are nice (i.e I can have people below me do work while I sit on my ass.... wait I mean I work my ass off, yeah that's it!)

    I'm the "all-around" guy most of the time - network admin, multiple OS server administrator, help desk manager, project leader on new initiatives, blah, blah, blah....

    I'm still working on my degree, took years off for an ex (I know, I know!). I'm the "naturally nerdy" type, and am the youngest to have my job (which means I may skillfully play the law school girlies, I mean women that is ).

    There are some very sharp guys here apparently, very nice. To others with a lesser degree of education, remember: a degree is a slip of paper, it does nothing to assure you a "higher" place on the totem pole of life, you do that through your actions. (not to discredit the guys here with extensive higher ed, you get the point!).

    I agree completely. It's what you do but how you do it. You earn MY respect and admiration for the kind of person you are, not your station in life.

    Yup, happiness is the key.  You can have as many or as few degrees, different strokes for different folks.  Some brilliant minds are successful and happy, while others are miserable.

    Jweave, your a good bro that has demonstrated time and again that integrity and a desire to learn is paramount in your life. I appreciate what you said in your post. I just want to be clear that I was joking about feeling "less" than any of you educated types.

    The last thing I EVER worry about is whether you have a degree or not. The traits&nbsp ;that make a person "sucessful" or "smart" can not be learned from any institution.

    Oh I know, I gotcha bro. I always try to cement that point in some younger readers heads, though. It really saddens me when I see some people place all too much value on education, I get this way from working at a law school. You wouldn't believe how "dumb" some of the "smart" people are there (maybe you would though!).

    As for me, we'll i'm in my last year of university.

    Finishing up a BBA (finance) and a BA in IT. Looking for a job now, was looking for a position in investment banking, but with the economy so crap, competition is VERY high, were each bank highers about 1 person from across Canada.

    But, I was worried about the amount of hours, cause then I couldn't eat 7 meals a day and workout!

    Ya, some pretty bright people in here!

    Agree, they spend to much time  in education that they are no street smarts, or in other words they lack of real world work experience.

    ok, well all I have right now is an AAS in Telecommunications, Changed my mind lots of times.  Actualy started out going to college for criminal justice..then switched to Exercise physiology....THEN got a degree in Telecommunications (3.9 GPA).  Eventually I want BS degree in MIS (Management information systems), and then an MBA.  Money is tight and I seem to be the only one whos parents DON't Pay for college, or anything else for that matter..ok im bitter...anyway

    I do computer/network support for an outsourced company.  Currently working at a large company's research facility.  They make toothpaste and lots of other cool things.  Job is fun, im only 23 though, so hopefully by sometime in my 30's I'd like to be sitting in the position of CIO/CTO.    All it takes is a dollar and dream
