    I'll add mine in, not that you lot haven't a clue anyway as I've mentioned it often enough

    I'm a 3rd marine engineer in the merchant navy. I maintain all the machinery in the engine room of the ship I work on in the North Sea

    I work on a standby and supply vessel which services the Hewitt gas field just off the coast of Cromer, essentially we bring out supplies to the platform and act as a first line emergency services in the event of another piper alpha type disaster

    In addition to being an engineer we are trained to fight fires, and carry out some of the more advanced "basic" CPR techniques if you like....

    I haven't always worked on standby boats in the North Sea, I've worked on 300m container ships, passenger ferries, super yachts, MOD military ships and a small warship (non military contracted) and research vessels

    I am a Learning Technology Officer for a UK university, this basically means i provide support to the students to ensure that they are able to use the eLearning technologies by providing training sessions etc. and designing and programming new content for them, however my job also requires me to do a large amount of Technical Support for both the staff and students as we are seriously undermanned.

    I also operate and service one of these 3d cube installations

    Ingerlish teacher in China, as most of you probably know.

    Could move up to teacher/manager if I wanted but the salary increase doesn't balance the amount I'd lose by not being able to work my second cash in hand job at another school.

    Back in the UK I had various basic electronics related jobs, most of which sucked.

    so do you need to have a 2nd job to survive or are you doing it so get some cash saved? quite like the idea of doing some teaching in china but i just assumed it wouldnt pay very well

    I used to to be parts manager for a major truck company and also the it guy for the southwest offices.
    now life's pretty shit and I'm lucky to be able to remember my wife's name most days and can't walk more than 10 feet.

    if I could I would go back in a heartbeat love mixing with customers and solving problems.

    I'm sure there's another thread like this somewhere else

    Anyways,

    I'm a Network Management Centre engineer. Chose it as I've always worked in IT and it was a progression from a previous job. No picture I'm afraid.

    Was an MIS and IT manager for 10 years until recently when I decided to change roles and become a warhouse storage manager.

    Users, lack of progression and flooded IT industry made me change.

    I work for Norbert Dentressangle Logistics (Formerly Christian Salvesen) at a warehouse in Neasden. We are one of 7 sites dealing with warehouse and distribution for M&S.

    There is a pic of me in my old IT manager job, in my old office, in my flickr signature (bluchip)
