    RN Unit Manager on a cardiopulmonary rehab unit.

    I manage 60 patients, 8 nurses' aides, 3 LPNs, and another RN that works below me. I also deal with all of the families, doctors, other department heads, and my own boss. Oh...and I'm also responsible for managing problems on the evening and overnight shift, to boot.

    This is the reason why I'm a beer advocate.

    A printer?
    I also did that, during the Depression, from '08-'12. Newspapers (college,high school, small town weekly, etc.), brochures, event programs,menus, etc. . We had c. 1975 community presses.

    I could see the writing on the wall, from the beginning. Most of the audience is/was the pre-computer generations. New EQ was constantly being added to the parent company, while we got their newer hand-me-downs . Lower priced competitors, with much poorer quality constantly jumped in. Despite some asbolutely crappy work, some customers would settle for it, because of the slightly lower cost. When my other job could become full-time, I took it. They closed it last August, moved some of the work to other sites. I don't miss it. (much) :wink:

    I'm currently a Physics major at Purdue University with an interest in studying some of the various theoretical facets of particle physics and/or astrophysics, while I've considered switching over to Aerospace with a focus in developmental astronautics and spacecraft propulsion design. I'm also very interested in nanotechnology.

    I have a passion for filmmaking as well, so that may or may not come to fruition at some point in my life.

    Not sure what I want to do yet, I'm just a free spirit.

    @nick0417 I actively enjoy what I do for a living (I work as a craft beer/fine wine/spirits rep for a locally owned distributor) but there are some days where you drag the bag and there are some days where it drags you. People see me working/presenting at events and they are like "I want your job" but most of the time they are only seeing the 'glamorous' side of what I do, not that I am at my computer right now at 10:15 at night because I have a couple of reports that I absolutely have to get done tonight, and I finished work at 7 (left the house at 8) and went to the gym to try to burn off some of my sins from this weekend. It's definitely not a 9 to 5, but I can't imagine doing anything else. I love my job.

    Manager of Talent for a small (45 employees) IT consulting company. We do mostly enterprise web solutions. I'm responsible for hiring and making sure we have programs and systems in place to help people be successful and keep them happy. I absolutely love it... We focus on freedom and responsibility. Hire really good people and give them everything they need to be successful. Besides that, trust they are adults and will get their work done until they give you a reason not to trust them. That includes the freedom to have beers in the office. That makes me happy.
