    Just curious what all you VGA viewers do to pay for all those games, haha.

    My job is kind of an odd one. I repair band instruments. Saxes (mostly saxes, which is what I play), clarinets, tubas, things like that. I’ve been at it a couple of years now after a year in repair school. Currently I’m working from home with my parents while I stock up on tools and possibly wait for one of my repair school buddies to either get me an in where she works, or go into business with her.

    That, and there’s only one other repair shop around where I live, and though I did interview and do some trial work there, I decided I didn’t like their methods and the quality of their work… DON’T JUDGE ME! D;

    I’m not making enough to live on my own yet, but I am making enough for some rather expensive tools, along with supporting my gaming habit.

    I’m a veterinary technician. It’s like being a nurse for animals. I restrain patients, monitor surgeries and in-house patients, scale teeth, help medicate, stuff like that. While I do get to hug all the puppies and kittens that come in, it also means I often go home covered in various body fluids or hair (sometimes both) and have to use ninja skills to avoid being ripped apart by the crankier patients…and owners.

    My diploma in english would probably translate to Network Technician.

    But right now I’m kind of a small network Administrator, tech support, database developper, and anything else related to computer or network guy.

    By trade I’m a timber framer, which I get many people don’t really know what that means. Its pretty much just fancy joinery at a large scale. Its just my father and I at our business, but if you’re curious you can check out our website i guess haha. (Logsmith.ca) #shamelessplug I’m not planning on staying a timber framer however, I’m currently in my 3rd year of game dev at Durham College in Ontario.

    I’m an entrepreneur video / audio / graphics guy. I have been working for myself for a year now and it’s been ok businesswise. I’m not sure if I will keep doing this forever, for several reasons, but currently it is still pretty sustainable and fun.

    I believe the correct description for what I learned is IT-Systems Engineer.
    Currently I’m working for a small company in Germany where I work with Chip-Programmers.
    http://www.batronix.com/shop/index.html
    I’m adding support for new (and old) chips to our BX-Programmers, that means a bit programming and a loooot of reading through datasheets to find out how some chips talk.

    I work at my local college managing student data and helping students with their questions about financial aid, registering for classes, changing their major, etc. A lot of the time the questions are very easy to answer and the students are very nice, but every now and then we’ll get one who is very difficult to deal with. The pay makes up for it, but it does wear me out by the end of the day.

    I’m just a student at a community college learning business. Hopefully it will help me in whatever business I’ll get interested in. Someday I’m hoping to run some sort of business of my own or at least something on the side. Also I’m currently searching for a job. I’m just starting life

    I teach in after school Chess programs. K-8. I’m at different school every day of the week. I also have private lessons with some of the kids and the company hosts a few tournaments through out the year.

    When I have time I also perform at theatres in the area. I’ve only done a couple of paid shows, but it is great to get paid for something I am passionate about.

    I’m a food product packager. I work at Treetop and we make Apple Sauce and Juice and almost every flavor of ocean spray juice! Wanna know a secret? All of your American brands of apple juice are the same recipe! Its cheaper than flushing the tanks for other orders as we also have contracts with places like Ocean Spray and Smuckers. I package and review those new small to-go pouches of Apple Sauce. I also get sent out to farms in the summer to package and ship cherries! Cherry season here is a crazy month and a half of getting those suckers out as fast as possible because they are so delicate, you basically agree to work till you hit the floor for a month and a half. Then apples start up again and back I go!
