    Outside sales. I sell stainless, carbon, aluminum and chromoly steel primarily to fabricators and equipment manufacturers in Northern California & Northern Nevada.

    I'm also a Scorpio who loves snowboarding and long walks on the beach...

    I love everything about this.

    I'm in the awkward three month phase between graduating law school and taking the bar where I can't quite call myself a lawyer yet. Basically, I watch lectures all day and drink a shit load of coffee with the occasional beer. That's a profession, right?

    I do project management for a big contractor in DC. So uh... I build buildings and stuff. Or at least I tell other people how to build them.

    I'm only 3 years our of law school, so I remember.

    The best advice I ever received was to treat studying like a job, especially for May/ June. Study for 8 hours a day (not 12!) and go out on the weekends. Don't burn yourself out. Then amp it up for the first 2 weeks of July, and again towards the end of July.

    Wildlife Biologist in the Bay Area, and finishing up my Masters thesis this coming fall studying endangered shorebirds. As a grad student, it's important to prove how much more distinguished I am than undergrads by drinking tons of expensive craft beer :wink:

    Graphic designer here. I work for a promotional company that puts art on glassware. Every now and then I get to handle the artwork for breweries, so I get to see the art/glass before most. It makes me feel special.
    In all reality though, I don't get a lot of creative freedom, so I freelance also. I'm considering cashing in on craft beer and doing some art for glassware. We'll see. I'm working on a children's storybook too.

    That's what I've heard, as well. So far, so good. I might need someone to check on my sanity in about a month, though. These lectures are slowly rotting my brain and/or stealing my soul. Perhaps both.

    I was in consumer banking for 23 years, but my job was eliminated a few years ago. I now work at a store that sells high-end housewares, fine foods, cheese and (of course) and enormous selection of beer. Plus I get to roast coffee! Needless to say, I'm a little happier than I used to be!

    Problem is....once you get popped, there's not only no progress, but a big gap in employment history when it comes to your resume.
