What is Your Occupation?

Money makes the world go 'round. So how do you earn your money?

What job would you like to end up at once you're done with college and ready to settle?

I'm looking at a number of careers, so far I plan to become a software engineer, though architecture looks interesting as well.

Of course if this doesn't work out I'll get a job teaching whatever i learn in college and make small video games and mods in my spare time.

Unemployed at the moment but I'll be getting a summer job so i can afford expensive stuff to entertain me during my frugal university months. I'll probably work nights or some other antisocial hours, that way I get paid more and my general routine is otherwise totally uneffected.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I'm in college, so I only work part time. I work at a community college testing center, which we have because it's mostly an online college. Hopefully at some point down the line I'll be programming games.

I work as a Paper Boy, reknown for being a meaning-full job for today's high earners.

I work at Dunkin Donuts. It's pretty good, I get free stuff when I'm working, and a 10% discount when I'm not (100 percent if my boss isn't around to see what's going on and the other person is cool). After tips and taxes, I generally make about 8.2 an hour.

I remember working at Macca's (McDonald's to you yanks) we had 50% discounts on food. Normally you need a manager to scan there card on the machine to get the discount I remember once rocking up to work to find out my time table there was a new manager on i grabbed some lunch while i was there and she wouldn't give me the discount because i didn't have an ID card thing we meant to have (No one was ever given a card). Lucky the person on the register was actually cool and hit some magic buttons on the that gave the discount.

Unemployed for now. I'll probably work as a paper bag boy at Vons when I get the time. I'm planning to launch a career in film making, but the damn studios won't let someone as long as me be of any help to working on the set. >:(
