I'm a Library Aide for The Los Angeles Unified School District. A step lower that a certified librarian.

Who would've thought.

Currently an HR data analyst/statistician. Previous job I was designer/illustrator and database administrator (small place, broad roles). Before that legal secretary/paralegal. Basically a Jill of all trades and master of none.

I'm also a cartoonist :)

Default Re: What's your "day" job?

On top of being a 1st year at York U, I teach drums/piano/theory at two music schools, do session work, and gig regularly with my jazz trio and acoustic-pop group.

I make enough money to put me through university and keep myself fed. Not enough for a car, or to move out though! Take out the university tuition and I'd be A-Okay! But I plan on moving to New York, and I have to get much better to be a session musician there!

Partner in appliance service company. Drumming is a safe outlet for my job-related frustration. It helps me to maintain composure when I feel like screaming at an ignorant or rude customer.

commercial aviation, I work for a major airline. I work the ramp (aka load/unload aircraft) so stop packing so much crap. I've been working for the same company for 16 yrs, started when I was 19. I've worked ticket counter and gates as well but bags dont bitch so much lol.

Honestly If I could find another job that pays as well i would be out of aviation for good.
