Your Career?
« on: January 12, 2012, 02:10:46 am »
What do you work as? If you are in college, what are you studying to be? If you are in high school or below, what do you want to be?

Dunno, to be honest, 'cause there's no way I'd survive sitting at a desk all day. For some reason taking up welding like my grandfather did appeals to me, but I'm not sure if it's something that I really want to do. Time will tell, I guess.

I went to college for drafting and design, but life lead me to being a trucker instead. I do enjoy it though, just look at my sig. :P

I can at least say that what I learned in college (and my highschool drafting courses where I started down that path) has been a nice skill set to have in other areas in my life. Like just recently I was able to diagnose a computer problem after getting hold of the service manual with all the part diagrams circuit board schematics. If I didn't already have a basic idea of how to read them, there would be no way to make heads or tails of that stuff.  x_x

I'm in my fourth year of studying palaeontology and evolution. I don't know what I plan to do after I finish university, the number of jobs actually relating to my course is very small and there are too many poeple applying for them. So... I don't know, I guess I'll go look for a job anywhere to tide me over until the economy gets better and I have some idea of what I want to do.

Senior year in High School; I want to go to college for my art and music, and do a lot with my art. Anything from video game design to just selling random pieces would be nice. I'm also thinking about getting into teaching. Beyond that, I'd like to do tattoos also. ;D

Wait......let me re-phrase that. My "human" career is working in retail. My "furry" career is being an Admin on Furtopia which can be a tedious and boring and aggravating job sometimes.  x_x

I look to be a writer- as per my own writing as of late. I know I'm gunning for my English Major, perhaps higher(Never really got into what the college degrees were all about, if you will.), and I know I want to enter in the service. Most likely as a tanker, 'cause, hey, everyone loves the raw, destructive power of a 120mm smoothbore cannon, right?

I originally attended University to become a 3D animation artist but I realized I liked working with my hands and physical medium instead. I spent time as a video game store manager and a web designer. I am now attending University to get my Bachelor of Fine Arts with a Major in Visual Arts. I intend to be a professional artist, doing art exhibitions and possibly concept art for video games and movies. The last two are more of a dream but I will be putting some of my art on exhibit in my city's art centre

Senior in High School right now. My first encounter with programming was last year, and I loved it so much I took an incredibly hard programming class this year  :P Planning on majoring in computer science/getting a related job in the future.
