Right now, looking for work; my last job was three-and-a-half years at a St. Louis-area strip club as a doorman. My degree is in journalism, however; I've worked for newspapers in southeastern Missouri, both Carolinas and in east-central Illinois (in fact, in the town where I went to school) as well as for a suburban newspaper chain in the STL area. Got fired from the last newspaper job I had, however, and had to take a job for a direct-advertising company supervising crews in distributing flyers and handbills door-to-door in neighborhood both locally and on the road.
I've had some interesting experiences, both at the club and in the newspaper biz.
I've been retired for almost 10 years now...I opted for early Social InSecurity at 62 because I just couldn't take any more office politics (and religious) cr*p. I still work part time at home, doing some writing for a local free newspaper called The Pet Press that promotes spay/neuter policies, shelter adoptions instead of buying puppy mill products at pet stores, and general pet health care. I also still pet-sit for a few friends, but I am no longer physically able to walk dogs any distance. I miss that.
Before I retired I was a bookkeeper/tax preparer, and before that, I was a chorus girl in an ice show. A LONNNNNG time ago! My profile picture was taken on my 19th birthday in 1958, in Columbus, Ohio. So now you-all know how old I am.
Oh, between bookkeeping jobs, I worked a while at KCET in Los Angeles when they still had fundraising Auctions. I was fortunate enough to be on the lot when Carl Sagan's "Cosmos" was in production. After that gig, I put in 3 years in the JCPenney Western Regional Advertising office. A madhouse!
I test robots.
I work for a small Swiss company that builds robotic storage systems for the pharmaceutical industry. My job is to set up the robots and make sure they are working properly. I then train the customers to use them. My job takes me all over the world, Germany, Scotland, the US and Japan.
Robots eh Adrian? I have an idea. Can you create some robots to take over the US govt? Maybe we would finally have some intelligent beings and rational discourse in our governmental policy making for a change.
