Are you good at it? What does it involve? Do you like it? Can you get me one?
assessing and pricing risk
no, apart from the friends I've made it has made my every working day a living hell
probably not, and not the best path to take given current climate
i'm brilliant at it. An average day consists of cake for breakfast, a nap in the common room, quick tree climbing session at break time, go to a lesson, maybe do an hour or so of work, then i'm home in time for Neighbours. I'm going to miss it :(
i'm alright and don't mind being a student.
i'm crap at being a media mogul but i love doing it so i don't mind.
I start work at an independent record label, managing all their online promotions.
it has its moments.
useless at the first atm thanks to NOT LIKING MY COURSE ANYMORE THANKYOU/I'm pretty darn good at it. I love it so much I'd happily go do it full time for the family I usually work for.
You can take my degree but not the family I work for. K?
2. Yes (when I'm not distracted by the internet).
3. Going to meetings, drawing stuff, wrangling with details and very rarely designing something I'm actually proud of.
4. Not at the moment, no.
5. Dunno. What skillzzz do you have?
Sometimes I wished that I had done Fine Art instead (usually at 4am in the morning, the day before a crit...).
I'm an alright student--know my stuff, just not quite diligent enough, am active and diligent in extracurriculars. I'm an excellent barista. You can probably get a job at the place I'm expecting to be hired but you certainly wouldn't want to. I have a reasonable suspicion that the owner is a modern H.H. Holmes, with coffee shop instead of drugstore.
I'm alright. Not long into the career and there's a canny bit to know. It's not a barrell of laffs at the minute, because nobody trusts a word you say (Thanks to the FATCATS!!!) but I enjoy it on the whole.
2. Yeah, very good at it.
3. Meetings, calculations, drawings, designing equipment, training
4. Yeah I am, though it's going to be a tough coupla weeks.
5. Come back after a 5 year degree and yeah, i could garuantee it.
sadly i do seem to be pretty good at it. it involves writing threatening letters from templates, answering emails from idiots, speaking to idiots on the phone, and dealing with other idiots in the department who get paid more than me yet cannot write a legible email. i could probably get you a job here but it'll be the end of you.
yeah i'm good at it but it's easy. involves various things, from mundane (organising meetings, making sure rooms are organised, taking/typing up minutes/actions) to stuff i can actually put on my cv and be proud of, like leading a web design project, external event organising, dealing with public enquiries etc. don't really like it because it's with an organisation i'm not fussed with much. doubt i can get you a job, either, main reason there's temps is because the entire place is relocating to manchester by next year
Meh, I can find a mean. Sometimes i even do a standard deviation. i extract data to the right specifications from the big massive database of national hospital data. I have to know about when to use all the different filters. Then i look at it in excel and work out stuff like day case rates and average lengths of stay in hospital for different diagnoses. Then i write short reports on what i found. That's mostly it. The best bit is the people i work with. I'm still looking for a job in conservation.
- im so so largely due to lack of motivation and comparative non geekness.
- Right now writing web sites but ive done windows app and embedded stuff like phones and motorway signs before too.
- Its a job but when i compare it to other its suits me. No uniform, little corporate bullshitting or kiss assing required and i dont have to lie or harm to world..sooo I say its a 6/10 on the job scale. If you have 2 years experience in .net i could put u forward for an opening we have.
I can do it with my eyes tied behind my back.
It involves talking to global distributors and occasionally visiting them. As we are a manufacturer I don't actually do any selling, just inform our distributors of product updates and new stuff.
I don't enjoy it at all. Stuck in an office for 90% of my life is not where I want to be.
No. I barely have enough work for me.
i anlyz bznz
Based in Manchester, the umbrella capital of the world.
surely this is an ongoing joke?
I travel the counties of England wrestling all comers for money.
I'm a mint student...although I don't do any work. I'm good at the other side of being a student though...That's going to change though in September when I start again.
I'm very good at being a counter assistant, I'd blow yr minds if you came to my work.
More of the monkeying and less of the journalisting at the moment. When motivated I can be good...I think.
Are you good at it? Yeah, not bad at all. Would be much better if I didn't waste time on here though.
What does it involve? Putting together information reports on people, companies, countries and industries. Plus pretty much any legal information lawyers might need. Also lots of intellectual property reports for various people around the world on a daily and weekly basis. Plus lots of other law-based stuff.
Do you like it? Yes, it suits me.
Can you get me one? Unlikely.
i advise people with debt problems, help negotiate repayment plans, or help them get the debts written off/challenged, or help them through insolvency... sometimes I have to represent clients at court but not often.
i do really like it, yes. pay is ok, i feel like i'm helping people, colleagues are a good bunch.
if you wanted to do this then you'd probably need to start as a volunteer. http://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/join-us JOIN US
I kill what I eat.
and doing some general design stuff.
it's alright and pays the rent.
the pay wasn't so great, but i still have a pension.
