There's already a topic on this in the Your Place section. Regardless, right now I'm a full time student, majoring in music.

I've been a corporate performance analyst for the past few years (not sure anyone in the office knows what that is either but it's to do with HR stats), but I mostly stopped that for the last six months to look after my old Dad.

Now I have pretty well retired, although I have a few loose ends with my old work before I truly take my place as part of the gentry. Might join a few bands if I can find some suckers to put up with a crazy old lady on drums in these days of new fangled metronomic sensibilities.

For some reason I have a deep desire to play psychedelic music for mad hippies.

I normally teach guitar, bass, drums, saxophone and ensemble at official music schools. At the moment I also conduct a schoolband.

This is the reason why I got more into the drums as I wanted to do a better job than my predecessors. Guitar players that knew less than nothing about drums.

I'm a Commercial Credit Insurance Broker for a large US company called Aon.

The work's boring but the client's aren't....I've made some very good friends as a result of a client/broker relationship.

And I got a modest bonus earlier this year which bought my electronic drum kit so I shouldn't be ungrateful.

I wanted to be a train driver

I've worked in social work for the past 22 years, with people with disabilities mainly, but currently I'm a student doing my social work degree part time while I continue to work. My wife and I are also foster parents to 2 kids and parents to 2 1/2 (one on the way due in Oct '12).

I'm looking for a job to fill my spare time....

I am happy to say I'm a Maintenance Planner for a little company called International Paper.
It's taken me a lifetime to get this gig and I can't tell you how happy I am with it.
No cell, no supervision responsibilities, no weekends, no holidays. I just schedule preventive maintenance and hand out work all day.

No idea what it is, but it's gotta be better than this.

Consultant engineer 3 days a week to pay the bills. Partner in Guru Drumworks the rest of the time. I can see that shifting more towards full time drum business as time moves on.

Marketing Consultant

I look after a portfolio of 34 clients mainly: devising, advising upon, analysing, running and maintaining social media strategies and S.E.O (search engine optimisation).

Funny thing is I jammed with my boss a number of years ago at an open-mic night (he's a pianist in his spare time) and we recognised each other near enough straight away at my interview for the job. He's really supportive of my musical endeavours, couldn't ask for anything more really.

Hope everyone is well,

Kev
