    Electrician, and also do a lot of traveling for repair and commissioning-jobs for Catalytic converters on big ships. (And I honestly don't even believe in the whole man made global warming-thing)

    Full-time 40 hours electronics salesman

    Plus every little bit of extra work on the side I can get my grubby mits on, have been know to knock together and fix a few computers, do a bit of gardening, wiring, plumbing and carpentry.

    I'm one of the rare breed that can do a bit of everything but to a decent standard, not the jack-of-all-trade type that will bodge stuff together.

    Engineerings and quoting curtainwalls, doors, windows and sunshades. It sucks for what they pay me but I am pretty young and didn't have any experience when I started

    But right now I'm laid off and have been since January

    At the moment, I'm struggling to get my degree in Electronics & Software engineering finished, and to fund it, I work part time (part time... haha) as a bespoke performance PC designer and manufacturer, as well as performing pretty much all other duties relating to computers like repairs, upgrades, home and small business networking etc etc etc. As an advertised electronic engineer, I also get quite a bit of electronic technician work, repairig anything from car HUs to televisions and sound equipment like amps and desks.

    As I'm on my year out from uni at the moment, I also took a second job about 3 weeks ago, working as a Junior Electronic Engineer in a local electronics company, who specialize in electronic assembly. We are a sub contractor for several major companies in the UK, assembling PCBs, cmos camera sensors, wiring looms etc.

    Failed actress. Failed actor. Failed astronaut. Failed palaeontologist. Actually pretty much failed everything.

    As Joe will testify, though, I was a teenage hand model - some of my work is even exibited on bit-tech.
