Default Consultant to check who spends too long on TE

I am paid by companies to check who spends too long on TE during working hours and also study the behavior of the people on this very site. For exemple highly point-competitve members are prefered to those who only post 1 or 2 photos for fun or show antisocial behaviours. I assess skills like team-working, creativity, perseverance etc...
In some cases, it can be beneficial for the photographer, in some others it's not...

If you want me to give a good feedback to your company (so that you get a payrise to buy a new lense), write me good critics: No "TFS, good POV". Proper critics with whats and whys

hehe :-)

Default Research Scientist

Work as a research scientist in a major US Company that specializes in Materials/Technology. Currently I get paid to do early stage off-the-wall research, mostly in the Physical Sciences. The only connection between my day-job and TE is my first three years in the Optical Physics division of my company.

Default Job?? Retired US Navy and full time grandmother :)))

Can't be sure which is harder, but I don't travel as much as a grandmother. Then again, I don't stand 12 hour watches, either or stand inspections or salute anyone. This is definitely better.

Default All of those.

Hey, I've done most of that crap...well, in some minor way. I work at a rental company...renting construction equipment, homeowner crap...industrial stuff; things, elements...items. Sometimes the place can be like a zoo...I've also been covered in hydraulic oil...Everyday someone threatens to put a hit on me; right after I threaten them...sorta like the mafia.
My hands and clothes are dirty, my days are toooo long (see lack of participation recently on TE); I have way toooo many tools.

BUT, this is not what I want to do...every day I feel the impact of lost braincells...need to flex THOSE muscles.

Buddy, it ain't the bottom of the social ladder, it's the top...who rebuilds when it all goes wrong? Not the IT nut; before you have a computer, you must have a house.

PS. I smell like diesel quite often.

Please ladies, give me space.

Default Re: My Job in "real life"

I'm 'in between jobs'. In Australia I was the sales manager for an engineering company. Then we moved here to Europe. My ultimate dream is to earn even a small living from my photography, but I have absolutely no idea how to go about that. I'll keep looking and trying to improve my photography till then. Great thread.
Best regards to all, Steve.
