    I'm currently in university studying biology but I work as a dental assistant/receptionist on weekends :) It's kind of like an apprenticeship deal, since I'm planning on being a dentist in the future.

      Seems like a pretty diverse group around here. I'm 27 and I am an Operations and Security Shift Supervisor at a Spent Nuclear Fuel Installation and Decommissioning Nuclear Power Plant. Talk about fun and exciting, this is where it's at!!! Actually it is a really good job, I like it. I work with a lot of good and fun people. Of course its 3000 miles away from what I really want to do...

              Dang....there seems to be a lot of 28 yr. olds on here...that must be the average age for people to rediscover their childhood, eh? Anyway, jobs...

              I'm a computer support specialist for Marine Corps Community Services on Okinawa, Japan. Our Management Information Systems branch is responsible for all MCCS computer equipment located on island, including networks, phone lines, point of sale registers, customer use and administrative PCs. Doesn't pay too much, doesn't pay too little....but that's fine. My wife makes the big bucks. :D


              That sounds cool - Okinawa always makes me think of Karate Kid Part II.

              I'm 26 (turning 27 soon) and I do web-based promotions for Ticketmaster Canada. It's an okay job allowing me lots of internet playtime, but I've got a degree collecting dust and want to work for the government, but alas it's impossible to get in. :(

                  I want to make movies. I have been writing screenplays for a long time. I'm currently halfway through my fifth one now. Only hard work and time will tell. The biggest problem is, I've seen, is unless you know someone in the business, you've got a snowballs chance in hell to get anywhere. But i'm still trying... Thanks for asking :)

                    I hope to teach English and Dutch in secondary school somewhere, soon if possible. Fingers crossed.

                      Sad thing is, *NONE* of it was actually filmed here. The whole castle thing was silly. Okinawa has plenty of castle ruins, but the method in which they were constructed is completely different than what they used in the movie. Not to mention, they're made of a heavy grey stone, not a light colored sandstone (which doesn't happen to exist here). The house in the movie was almost completely made of shoji (paper with wood latice). Almost all the buildings here are made of solid concrete due to the frequency of typhoons. A paper wall wouldn't last here. Also, people don't freak out about typhoons like they did in the movie. They're pretty much no big deal...the kids go to the bowling alley or the movies. Traditional Okinawan attire also looks nothing like what they wore at the Bon-Odori, the drums they used were also more mainland than Okinawan, and, finally, you are NOT going to find those little drum thingers anywhere but possibly in a trinket shop that caters to American tourists. Sorry to burst anyone's bubbles :wink:

                        I got tired of going from temp job to temp job. I got tired of sending my resume all over the place and having companies hire some 50 year old woman that can berely do a Google search just because she's been working in offices longer. Just because someone has more "experiance" doesn't mean I can't do the job 5x more efficiently.

                        So now I have a new job. I'm working 2 days a week at a Namco Arcade at the mall. The pay is terrible, but I just don't care anymore. I basically stand around exchanging tickets for cheap plastic prizes or watching people suck at all the fps. And there's like a ton of fps for some reason. I'm not allowed to play the games while working, and I swear Virtua Cop 2 is calling out and mocking me.

                                    I'm 25 and worked for peanuts for two years just to get an okay job in Post Production.

                                    I work at a medium sized facilities house authoring DVDS, copying tapes to different formats, assisting editors and providing general tech support.

                                    Where I used to work it also meant meeting numerous B list TV celebs, but thankfully they don't drift out West, where I am now...

                                        A lot of you folks have really cool jobs, video game designer, porn star clerk, somebody earlier claimed to be God (that was me). I almost envy you. I build microchips for a living. Which really isn't as glamorous as it sounds. Pretty much all I do is push buttons for twelve hours a days, 6am to 6pm. It sucks, they could train a monkey to do my job, but at least I get long weekends, thats a plus.

                                          Well I'm 31 and I've been running a family child care out of my home for the past six years. I have three kids of my own ages 8, 5 and 4 (girl, boy, girl). It's a great job. I love it and it keeps my kids busy too.
