Congratulations, I hope it works out for you! I've never baked professionally, but I do love doing it at home. I feel like I'm more of a cook than a baker, though--I feel like bakers and cooks are like the Elvis/Beatles dichotomy from Pulp Fiction. You can do both, but you'll always love one of them more.

I work in IT, so there's some overlap in my hobbies and professional life, but I don't work in web development anymore, which makes it way easier to have the energy for a personal website these days.

A have a "job", I'm a Lance Corporal 5711 CBRN Defense specialist for the Marine Corp.

I run the CS chamber, teach classes on protective equipment, CBR detectors, CBRN Hazards and effects, office work, and perform preventative checks and maintenance of equipment.

I love what I love what I do even when though life gets rough and sucks sometimes, I'll have a buddy to my left and right I can depend on to make the suck bearable.

Congrats on the job!! Being a baker sounds cool :3

I don’t really know how to describe my job… “operations support” maybe? I do the work that the main team at my job can’t do as they’re busy doing their job. I used to be in IT (my major was actually in cybersecurity! I now want nothing to do with it because the risk and money investment involved is ridiculous lololol) but couldn’t land anything IT here in Phoenix because it’s almost all contract work without benefits… :tongue:

The pay sucks, I do the work of three people and some days really just make me wanna [redacted], but it’s a job that lets me put food on the table. I just wish I had the time/spoons to go back to school again :/

I was a web developer for a university until 3 weeks ago when I retired.

It now seems I'm a full-time form filler - US & UK social security and work pensions along with US Medicare and supplimental health insurance. These people have been happily taking money for the last 45+ years, but they make you jump through a few hoops to get it back.

I make sure human medicine in Europe becomes more safe and stays safe. I fill and co-develop databases and handle deadlines and reports for it.

You can help from the other side - always tell medical side effects you experience to your local national competent authority, your doctor, or the pharmaceutical company.

I don't work currently as I graduated currently from a regulated profession and there's some legal stuff I need to sort out before starting to work as that. But in August I went away for a month to work in wildlife rehabilitation! It was really emotionally taxing as most animals would come in severely injured because of some kind or another of human error. My job specifically was taking care of the babies + birds (monkeys, owls, deers, hummingbirds). I loved spending time with the animals but I wouldn't have stayed one more day after my contract ended because I was just so angry at the tendency humans have to fuck up wildlife when they come in contact with it  :ziped:

I'm a software developer. It's a thankless job best automated, but most jobs in the US are like that. I certainly don't recommend it, especially if you're an artist in need of a day job.

I just graduated and I'm still in the job application phase of it all. I have previously worked in labs researching protein biomarkers that affect tumor responses to different treatments and looking at proteins that affect the developments of severe birth defects in order to understand their mechanism of action. Given my current situation I'll probably work as a contractor or lab tech running various screening tests for other groups for a year or two, though long term I want to go for a PhD and be an academic.

Hey, almost a year late but congrats on scoring that job @dotmidi ! That's awesome to hear.  :cheesy:

I just got a new job too and started this week. I'm a courier and I deliver parcels to people's houses. It's okay, but it can be exhausting and takes up almost all my free time. I barely have time to do things I want to do these days, mostly due to work. Even my previous job was extremely draining and time-consuming. I feel bad because I can't even be as active on this forum as I'd like to be.

Finding a job has been real rough for me. The area where I live has no local businesses and I don't have a driver's license, so I pretty much HAVE to work remotely. The problem is that I have barely anything to put on my resume because my mentally ill ass didn't want to do anything during high school. I want to be a writer and do some side jobs through freelance work, but I don't know anything about the topics people want me to write about. I'm clueless when it comes to tech or vacationing or cooking or whatever, so I feel stuck. I've tried applying for entry-level stuff like data entry, but my applications usually go ignored.

If you have decent audio quality you could work from home as a call center employee or as a worker on a helpline. Those jobs usually aren't super picky about previous resume highlights, and as long as you have decent audio quality over the phone or through a VOIP they'll have you.

As the man responsible for all the 100 computers in a callcenter, I can tell you that the local employee market has dried up completly in my area. So nearly all new employees for the callcenter are gathered from far away, where they can work completly from remote. And in a proper callcenter, you have to get the equipment from the callcenter of course. Standard monitors, standard computers, standard headsets (the stuff you have at home is probably more valuable). Even a surprisingly slow internet line is enough for telephony, as long as it's consistent.

Everyone who behaves properly gets the chance in this callcenter. Some competitive natures can go for sales, but a slower pace is fine on the hotline of a "govermental" project. Very fair conditions.

@MrsMoe: I'd still value a drivers license high, despite only using it once or twice a year. Raises your market value certainly, because those situations where someone has to drive a car can happen and plenty of workplaces depend on it. Here, some companies pay you the driving license test, an excellent investment for those, who can't afford it.

Thanks for the advice. I've been trying to find customer service jobs for a while, but maybe I should be more specific and look for the stuff you're talking about~

BAHAHA, Long story short I got fired because they thought I was doing ecstasy (I don't, I really really don't, I was a high schooler at the time .)
It was confirmed to be gout pills , which again, obviously wouldn't be mine because i'm young and hearty but.. idk they won't let me work for them anymore just because they don't trust me i guess  :innocent:
oh whale, what can u do really, i plan on picking up another job
