Hey Othr, I spent 12 years as a high school band director. Good way to make a living I think. I think back to those good old days. Glad to see a fellow band guy and pipe smoker on here.

Senior R&D manager of biotechnology development for industries engaged in large-scale manufacturing of chemicals and biofuels using microbial processes. Currently unemployed and looking for the next great opportunity. Had a secure job with a fortune 500 company, then joined a biotech startup for 3 years, and here I am.

One benefit to being unemployed...my PAD is in check...almost...bought two pipes recently.

Hobie,

Didn't get burned out but became a school superintendent (couple of administrative jobs between here and there). We all make choices, I often regret giving up band directing.

I currently own a small boutique wine/liquor store. I say currently because the economy is about to force me (and my small but dedicated staff) to unemployment. I think the lower Hudson Valley all went to the same AA meeting!

I have been doing the samething for a number of years and I too can say it gets old sometimes but I like to eat and sleep under a roof, you have to work to be a productive member of society. I just don't understand guys who complain about a job that all they have to do is leave, if you are not leaving, how bad could it be? Maybe you just don't like to work? Maybe you just like to complain? No offense at all but just leave if it is as bad as you say. Again, no offense meant just my opinion.

Right, Smokey, it gets old every day. Work was meant to suck, hence the term "work."

I'm a night stocker at a supermarket, used to work front end, dairy, and produce. Before that, I was a cashier for seven years, six of them in fast food. Worked nights at a c-store for less than two weeks after that, it ended with me getting robbed and subsequently fired. Been in retail hell for eleven years, what can I say, it's a living not a career.

Holidays suck in particular, but I like the extra pay.

This is a great thread, lots and lots of experience here from all sides.

I started out in the restaurant business as an employee, then ran two of my own restaurants until the "best friend" I was running them with turned. Went into University catering then Corporate cafeterias. I won't do the latter again. decided to change careers so I became a computer trainer with CompUSSR and have been in Career Education since. I do lots of IT stuff on the side and sell my salsa every chance I get.

Looking forward to the next adventure.

I look forward to starting my real career--wait, that'd just be another job to suffer through. Guess I'm really looking forward to retirement--no, I'll just have to work myself to death. Okay, I'm looking forward to my next day off, this Tuesday. That'll do it, and getting my check on Wednesday.

I wash windows in a small town, but I plan on going to seminary in the fall, and hope to be a professor some day. I want to train pastors abroad, actually, and may get my first chance on a trip to Zambia this coming spring.

In an update to my previous post on this thread (which BTW was two years ago) I run a copywriting, web development and graphic design business, started from scratch just after my last post.

I work with my son (he started this month) and a graphic designer.

I do the writing and web design, and I'm glad to have escaped the corporate world.

Corporal at a 1400 bed county corrections facility and active Fraternal Order of Police union member. Blame the bad economy and two years of promotion freezes for no Sergeant. Now I think I'll just keep my seniority and ride out my last 10 as a Corporal so I don't miss my youngest's childhood from getting bumped to 3-11s.

Also amateur web designer, and Dr. Vapenstein at vapenstein.com. Also, along with my fantastically gifted partner Donley, we make the world's best tobacco extracts for use in E Liquid, available through our site at want2vape.com.

The important job titles are father and husband though.

I'm a preacher and also own and run a Christian daycare. I do some photography on the side. I got tired of being offered low paying jobs (I have an MBA) and am finally doing what I love. Life is good.

Good to hear you bounced back so well Paul - good stuff!

I too have changed careers. I've moved into management consulting after our little family business went on the skids. I'm loving it.

Today is Wednesday. I'm an Internal Revenue Service Tax Examiner. At the end of the day on Friday.....I'm happily *****RETIRED****!!!!

I've been a hospital administrator, a clinical practice administrator, a university program administrator, an undergrad and graduate instructor, a public school district administrator, a volunteer police officer just for the fun of it for over fifteen years, and now I'm wrapping up as a Tax Examiner.

Ask what I've done for a living? Everything. Now I'm going to be a pension collector and how sweet it will be. As of Tuesday (Monday is a legal holiday) I'm a full time pipe smoker and scotch tasting officionado. My outgoing voice mail message at the office is "Gone Smok'in and Drink'in. I'll return your call if I feel like it but don't count on it."
