    we know hansomatic is an engineer type because he ‘built’ a web poll — had he attended art school or design college he would have instead ‘made’ it.

    all internet places are engineer heavy, because computers and lots of down time waiting for plots.

    I named the company I still work for back in 1984. Original employee. Awesome startup.
    I chose engineering, management, and waffled between training and business owner, as I have shares now.
    Picked training as the third anyway.

    Down time? WTH is that? My job consists mostly of being angry and confused at computers while trying to trying to fit real work in between dashing from meeting to meeting and to "help" research scientists who are even more confused than I am. On a good day I remember to eat and pee. The upside is that I'm never bored.

    Worked as a General Manager of a powersports dealership for almost twenty years, left and started a new career as a corporate trainer/business consultant for a wide format digital print finishing (laminating films) company. I got laid off in '09 and went back to the powersports business for a couple of years. Until...some stupid b!tch on a cell phone almost took me out on my motorcycle. Which forced me into early retirement.

    Oh, and I also had a side hustle as a bookie for about seven years...allegedlyo_O:D

    I put down legal because it was the closest fit, but definitely not a lawyer. Worked my whole career in town / urban planning. It’s the ultimate generalist job - got involved in EVERYTHING. But at the end of the day, I wrote a lot of laws (of the local variety), and worked with cities and towns (“towns” is an enormously diverse category) to get them passed and make them work and tweak them over time. I did a ton of non-legal work too, but usually leading up to the passing of some sort of ordinance or rules. So legal was the best among a lot of “not exactly” options... Although I worked closely WITH a lot of lawyers and even had to sort of be an unofficial one in a lot of quasi-judicial settings - questioned and cross examined witnesses in hearings presided over by hearing examiners quite often...

    Didn’t pay like a lawyer, that would be for certain...

    Engineer in aerospace. I work in designing composite rotor blades for the only helicopter manufacturer in the UK. Unfortunately it only pays well enough to be able to afford one secondhand PRS.

    OK. Worked as a CPCU, CLU, ChFC, CIC. Now I don’t work as a CPCU, CLU, ChFC, CIC. :D

    I checked the “business owner” category since bullshitter wasn’t a choice.
