Instrument Operations, or control, an earth sensing environmental instrument on a satellite during the day and teach two classes at the local community college in the evenings. Ride on weekends.

But, I don't have a "job" ... I get paid for a hobby.

Sorry, a job means you are an employee giving services for a paycheck. You are disqualified.

Do you have any idea how hard the co-opting of the word "architect" by the IT industry has made it for actual architects to look for jobs? Search on the word in any job posting database and get hundreds upon hundreds of hits, with only one or two actually for architects. I know. I've been doing it non-stop for almost 3 years now.

No one is publishing hard information in my field, but the best educated guesses are putting our unemployment rate at somewhere around 40 %.
