Re: What's your "day" job?
I am an assembly technician at a small company that manufactures custom and medium run, small package, inline fiber optic devices for the telecomunication, medical, educational, research and areospace industries.
I do final assembly, testing and quality control. Though being a small company, we all do odd jobs as well. I will do light machine work and electrical assembly and troubleshooting here and there as well.
That job pays for my hobbies and college.
