I see there is a thread about military and vets, was just wondering what does everyone do for a living. Obviously there are some smart guys on this forum. Never know when there is an expert on a specific subject, and to boot...is a memeber of this forum.

I work for DOD as a NET manager for a new weapon system.

Spent most of my life moving from job to job as a factory laborer. Even washed dishes once. Finally caught a break and wound up working in the Sales Department; Inside Sales to be exact. Not a bad job really. Beats the hell out of repetitive assembly line work. Not going to make me rich, but at least it barely pays the bills.

I started out as an electronics engineer designing all kinds of stuff from tv sets to broadcast transmitters but the Australian electronics industry moved everything to Asia so I retrained and got my masters of computer science. Moved to the Bay Area of California to build global email systems but came back to Aus when my wife said she wanted to go home. (Man has to know when he's not going to win an argument) Now I write programs that run on Apple computers and I design complex computer networks.

Contract Manufacturing.....Operations Manager. We're actually a large machine shop with more than 50 CNC machining centers. Make parts (almost anything) to customer specifications. Customers are in Aerospace, Medical, Telecommunications, Fire Arms, Food and Beverage and the Defense industry. Staff is generally blue collar, but highly technical. Fun stuff! Been doing it for more than 30 years now. Started as machinist apprentice, move to inspection/quality assurance and now basically run the operation from the top. I just turned 60 and hope to be still doing it 20 years from now.
