I work in mortgages, its depressing as fuck.
Anyone got a job they actually enjoy?
it's a fun job, but I'm going to be given my redundancy notice on Wednesday by the looks of things :(
just thought I'd share that nugget.
If I have to leave this line of work just to get a job, I'll be sad :(

I are a policy officer in the Welsh Assembly Government. I rate it 'alright I suppose'/10
I are also a Policy Officer (in the Department for Business) High 10!

I was told that I'm doing it today. It gets me out of the office which I'm rather happy about.
Emergency Planning Officer.
It's pretty interesting, I'm going permanent once my references check out. Had a workplan earlier, I'll be doing more work on infectious animal diseases, use of ACCOLC (access overload control) and auditing our use of that, use of university accomodation and schools in emergencies, provision for access to shared drives at home...
Basically I've got a range of new stuff! The pay's not amazing for the level of responsibility, but work is 10 mins walk from my flat, my team is great, and I'm the happiest I've been in a while.
im now jealous of you, you great big happy bastard.
Things are pretty ace now, but a year ago they were a bit naff. I think you've got to make your own luck sometimes, and not being afraid of making sacrifices if you have to. For me a major thing is feeling like I'm control of my direction in life, and I had to make some pretty big decisions to get that back.
Things have a habit of changing quickly though, so chin up!
Except I'm currently unemployed and in the process of securing another job.
I'm also a professional whore and have a pimp as of last week. His name is 'Daddy'. Ha.
Big Daddy pay time and a half?
hot female and likes to suck alot.
Does that count?
I sell garish jewellery to gypsies and highly expensive jewellery to rich women.
I just learnt how to take links out of watches too.
rose-kitten is after a pearl necklace, get one sorted for her mate

From September Planning Lawyer. Bad one.

NEGOTIATOR, there is no negotiation involved in my job, but its sounds well 'ard
I worked in a cinema until yesterday. Today I am a nothing.
Although I will be a student with a shitty part time job again soon enough.
they made us clean those big metal sheets (that the popcorn gets emptied onto) until like 2 in the morning, then the bell end boss used to walk around swiping his finger along the sides of everything to make sure it was spotless, i hated that place. The Vue cinema uniform is terrible too, if i saw anyone i knew come in i would sometimes hide
so the uniform is just all black.
Despite my constant whinging about it, I actually really enjoyed my year and a half there..
i fucking hate my job.but come next september ilk be off to uni to study something interesting hopefully :D
