Right now, I work as a classroom facilitator at a university. However, I've just applied to go to grad school in folklore! If I get in, I'll be a student forever :o

My current plan is to study sociology when I start school at University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee this fall.

My dream job is to do professional voice-over. I know, I know. "Join the club". It's really something I want to pursue and do. I'm not sure where to start, but I know it's what I want to do with my life.

I'm planning on a jack of all trades kind of thing, which each skill set coming together to get me by while I would be doing what I love to do- work with horses. I'm planning on attending a horseshoeing course at an accredited horse college where I will also be tought forging (so not only can I make my own shoes/tools but I can do other blacksmiting projects as well), leather working (I plan on using this to make affordable medieval horse tack), and massage therapy. All of this I'm hoping will allow me to save money to pursue what I REALLY want to do, which is equine dentistry. Since there are no accredited dentistry programs out there I'd have to pay for it out of pocket, but the farrier school IS accredited, so after paying student loans I can work on the dentistry education.

And on the side I want a four-in-hand team of miniature horses to compete professionally in combined driving events : D

It's a lot on my plate but everything naturally spreads itself out to be taken on one at a time anyway..

I work at this doing, "Teir 3 tech support," but in reality i'm in such a small buisness unit in the company that we don't have a tier system.  Same TSE stays with the case untill it's done.  Cases can last from an hour to several weeks depending on the situation.

I aim to get out of the software industry;  I'm schooling to be elsewhere.

I'm currently working as an engineer in the automotive industry. I went to school for electrical engineering, and right now I'm a release engineer for driver's assistance systems (things like adaptive cruise control, rear-view camera, blind spot monitoring, etc). I basically just work with one specific system, and work with our component suppliers to ensure their parts meet our specifications.

I... don't really enjoy it at all. It's quite a bit removed from what I would consider true engineering (with a few months of training on our corporate systems and processes, high-school grads could do this work). I'm still trying to get into more of a hardware or software development role soon. I want to actually help create stuff.

Currently an undergrad, studying computer engineering, hoping to go for a PhD, and I have a specific interest in cybernetic interfaces.

I have had various jobs to pay for living expenses while at uni, ranging from IT to making business software to 3D modelling for indie games.

I'm disabled. But I still hold out a small bit of hope that I'll end up working with robotics someday.
You humans need to refine, alter, corral codify and measure things yes? Very well. I shall use your wristwatch to count out ten of your seconds. I suggest you use that time to run. For at the end of it I shall come for you and I will catch you and we shall measure the duration of your death... In screams.

You should look into scholarships for the disabled that could help you go to school for that. Physical disability shouldn't prevent you from studying robotics or being a scientist. You might even be able to get a full ride scholarship.

I didn't even know things like that existed. Thanks for the info. I'll have to look into it.

Aiming super high here, hoping to be a waiter by trade xP
No ordinary waitering, though, Dracula's themed, cabaret restaurant where the people are as fabulous as their costumes. But I can't go applying for a job there until I move to the right city, which will hopefully be soon.
And also doing acting and writing on the side.

I don’t have any career to really talk about, I’ve had many dreams and ideas, though I’ve mostly been prevented from doing anything that I would like, due to one reason or another.
Originally, I wanted to get a pilots license, and then over the years, work my way up to ATP Certification.
And then try to get a job with an airline, my preference was for a shipping company like FedEx.
Though that is something that's becoming more and more unlikely as each year passes.

I'm retired!  :D

Not really, just unemployed. :(

The last career was a truck driver, funny how relocating a light pole will end a newbies career. Before that, spent almost 20 years in sewer maintenance. Crappy job. Before that, it was industrial mechanic, auto mechanic, and tool & die maker. Got a 2 year degree in electronics in those years too.

As much as the road calls, I don't think I will go back to trucking. But that could happen.  (:  I may get try to get some training, go back to working on cars, maybe big trucks. I have tried to find work in sewer maintenance. I have been told by my city, I don't have enough experience  >:(  I actually trained their crews, repaired their equipment in the past.  >:(

I may find another path, something new. It's never too late, to teach an old skunk a new trick! ;)

I'm currently at university, studying a History degree (second year nearly over...). After my last year, I'll hopefully be getting into post-graduate, doing Battlefield Archaeology. I want to specialise in either the Ancient Roman military, or gladiatorial combat  ;)

Worked in various laboratories throughout my professional life, had a certificate in wastewater lagoon management, and was certified in pest control and pesticide application. (Yes--I was licensed to kill: Mice, rats, sparrows, starlings, and pigeons. Also ants, termites, moths, wasps, hornets, and roaches...but only the evil ones mind you.)

Working part-time at present, for a local municipality, but they tell me it could go full-time.

But I'm in college to be a middle school teacher.
Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Oh no, not again. Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the Universe than we do now.

Now I plan to be an EMT: seems like a better overall career than a welder, albeit one requiring a helluva lot more in just about every aspect. Still dunno if it'll stand the test of time, though.
