    I work as a Graphic Designer for The Canadian Military.
    not as great as it first sounded where I'm based ATM. I pretty much make posters for base events and certificates of achievment. Hopefully doing training videos and motion graphics in a few months though, that should perk things up.
    I'm just happy I'm a civillian still though.

    I'm a Technical Administrator for one of the countries largest Pre-Packed Pork Product suppliers in the country. Most of the Supermarket staff here have more than likely scanned some of our products without knowing it :D

    "Unemployed" in the traditional sense of a biweekly pay-out, but am still employed through other means. I'm the web admin for two sites, a web designer for one of the sites, a graphic's designer, I do a lot of freelance work for charities, I also go and make impressions at big corporations for said charities, some semi-pro photography for an upcoming magazine, a small computer repair/sales store (mobile at the moment), and the occasional job working on a bike. Unfortunately, none of these things pays me enough to actually afford my life style, so I'm still in search of a normal job.


    I've got tons of experience, training, and know-how for most anything, yet I can't even get a job interview at McDonalds :wallbash:

    I'm starting to think that... When I go around handing out resume's I'm dressed in a full business suit and trench coat with a black folder under one arm... I'm not sure what people are thinking when I drop off a resume dressed like that in a place like McDonalds... Must be a funny sight in either case.

    Meh, why not? Configuration Management for the International Space Station Program at NASA.

    Instead of money, they gave me a title ;)

    I'm currently working on moving over to the imagery side of things, because I hate being out of my chosen field!
