Hi! What do you guys do for a living??! - Page 350

post #3491 of 5881
I got my BS in molecular biology and was a forensic biologist for about a year before I got bored with it, plus I was broke all the time. Now I'm a project controls specialists, basically means I help plan, schedule, and cost track large capital projects like chemical plants, refineries, automotive plants and steel mills. It pays pretty well but it fluctuates with the economy and the working environment. I can bring home twice as much when I working on a job site compared to when I'm sitting in the office. Either way, I spend 80% of my time sitting in front of a computer and 50% of that time doing stuff like this that has nothing to do with my job.

Hi, this is a great site. Lots of good threads to dig through.

I am an analog microchip designer. I have made: switching power supply IC's, audio switches, proximity detector IC's, charge pumps, USB/HDMI switches, backlighting drivers. It is fun to open up a competitor's chip and figure out how their designs work, when I run out of imagination biggrin.gif

Currently a student in mechanical engineering at Purdue. Does that count as a job with a negative income?

I'm working part time at a local skating rink to bring in some money. I'm not entirely sure what my position is though, I do everything from hand out skates to yelling at idiots on the skating floor to running the DJ booth to running laser tag.

Over the summer I worked up in Troy, Michigan as a mechanical test technician at Meritor. Being paid to break stuff with massive hydraulic rams? (100,000 pounds force on the medium ones) Awwww yeeeeaaaaah.....

I've also worked at a small company my dad owns installing custom kitchens mostly (although, they did just about anything with counter tops). My family also owns a small farm I occasionally help out on, although with school these two things have kind of gone to the wayside since I don't have time to get back home much.
