What do you do for a living?

I know there's been threads about what kind of bikes you have, cars you drive, type of riding you do...etc. So i figured I'd ask this - what kind of job do you have or what school (college) are you going to and for what?

As for me, starting this fall I'll be at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ studying Mechanical Engineering. After that it would be my guess that I'd be an engineer (duh!).

I am a licensed Architectural Engineer designing HVAC systems mainly for pharmaceutical laboratories.

I also have my own small business making and selling miniature furniture (laugh if you will). Funny I ALWAYS hated dolls/dollhouses as a kid, yet I enjoy making the furniture now.

This has been a fairly common thread.

I'm still an engineer supporting the US Navy.

Is Ellie still around?

Right now I'm a mooch...but I have an interview next week for an ISO Administrator/QA Chemist position and I've been "invited" to apply for a position doing what I did in a previous life which is...formulate household cleaning products! I'm so looking forward to making my contribution to making the rest of your lives just a little bit cleaner...funny thing about it is, I'm a slob and I hate cleaning.

I'm a student, Geography major with a Geographic Information Science focus. Which means if I do what I'm being trained for I'll sit behind a desk staring at a computer monitor all day for not much money.

So after college (summer 2004 and on) I'm planning on getting a job as a courier.

I honestly don't see what could be better than riding my bike all day for money. Unless I spontaneously grew enormous leg muscles and an unparalleled cardiovascular system in which case look for me leading Le Tour next year!
