    I work in housekeeping. Mainly janitorial type duties (clean bathrooms, offices, etc). I get to work early shift hours (5:30am - 2:00pm), so that is nice.

    I make 1/3 of my payment. I work as a waiter at my dads restuarant, along with being a highschool student. My car paymeny and gas and food all come from a $700 monthly allowance given by my parents. 450 about goes to my car, the rest go towards gas, food and whatnot. I pay for all my mods

    Currently a Process/Design Engineer. I design, build, and test medical devices for a small R&D company. I am also the resident graphic designer and webmaster.

    I might be going into a more bio-chem direction though as I have an interview with a company that works with nano-powders and the processes used in depositing them for commercial and experimental use.

    1. Got my degree in Business first, and thought that was for the birds.
    2. Went back and got another degree in Automotive Mechanical Techonology (read: A.S. in grease monkeying )
    3. Worked as a dealership wrench for Toyota, Range Rover, Jaguar, and Audi.
    4. "Moved Up" (Don't believe it, salary is for the birds. Stay hourly if you can!) to service consultant at the local Lexus dealer... That job made me some decent ducats, but if there's a more stressful job out there short of bomb disposal technician or air traffic controller I don't know what it could be!
    5. Went BACK to school (3rd time's the charm, right?) and got my Win2k MCSE.
    6. Now my partner and I (just 2 of us) do end to end computer consulting for many local non-profit agencies...

    I'm not getting rich (far from it, I'm starving to pay for my WRX and her many mods) but hopefully things will pick up in the future as the economy gets back on it's feet...
    W00T for MCSE. I'm taking my first test for MCSA/MCSE thursday. Any tips?

    Actually, I'm in engineering too, but not on the geeky/techy side, and no degree. I design the threading machines for Ridge Tool (you know, the RIDGID pipe wrenches you see in Home Depot. That company.)

    We paid off the house early, and bought toys with what used to be the house payment. In fact, before I sold the truck and bought the Miata, the toys in the driveway cost more than we paid for the house!

    Just that like any other standardized testing the solutions to the questions posed in the test are geared toward Microsoft biased answers. Don't answer real world, answer "MCSE" and you'll be golden!

    It was easy, truth be told. *shhh*, don't tell anybody.

    Damn! After all that bickering I went into work today and got a raise and a promotion! More than what I can say for my previous JOB!

    I now do not have to worry so much about doing the development, but manage the development in my department! That rocks! I am also (have been given the right) in charge of hiring new developers for my department. This is going to be a lot more stressfull!

    Maybe now I can bring back that old school morale booster in letting developers wear t-shirts, titties, and hats to work. no more shirts and ties. Heck...we don't see the customers right? Someone else talks to the customer and they bring us the specs!

    Who is good at Java, JSP, JavaScript, and the legacy programming of COBOL? We have a project hitting the floor next week that involves converting our DATACOM DB to DB2. Who needs a JOB?

    Guess what.. another IT..

    Me and my boss started a hosting company inside the "mother" mailing company which has been around since 1984. the hosting company has been active since Nov 2001

    I personally administer every aspect, from the dedicated lines from sprint, the routers, the managed switches, to the mutilple firewalls and webservers, and I keep an eye on all the customer colocated servers aswell as our for rent dedicated servers...

    On top of that I take on webdesign, and revamp projects, i program custom PHP.mysql web applications for the mailing company (basicly the company runs 100% of the web-based software i made).. Uhh, i from time to time take on media projects such as fancy adobe premeir videos and slide shows.. I also develop hosting automation software for the hosting industry, i am a full time student going got a CIS/BIS major..

    i work 40 hours a week on top of 15 class credit hours... (long days and nights)..

    i love what i do, and im only 19, and i want to stay doing what im doing for the rest of my sane life. :-)

    MCSE is incredibly simple, but imo its pretty much useless in the long run, I'm an ex-evil doer (MS employee) but they are truely an evil company overall, they pay incredibly well, but there is no way in hell that I would go back to working in that type of atmosphere. As for the MCSE, most reactions to it were 'thats nice, but we are converting to an open source *nix based platform, what experience do you have in that?' Luckily for me however, quite a bit
