Im interested in getting to know ya all a bit better

What is your job? **SORRY if this has been done already - im new**


Schitzn:

Industry:
INSURANCE

- Sit in a chair in front of a P4, and answer calls all day - people are more game to be arrogant to you when your not dealing face to face, but you can always press the hangup button if you know they dont remember your name.


Side Job:
VB6 PROGRAMMER

- Make money by selling software I write

As a 16-year old boy, I deliver the commercials to the houses in a certain district. I sort them out, deliver them and report back. It's a pretty heavy work, but at least I get good payment for it.

Hello schitzn! I don't have a work, I'm a student, and also a pretentious asshole.

I study Economic History at the Lund University. It's my 4th term at uni, I studied political science and statistics before.

Pros:
-You learn interesting stuff about the history of humans and how economy have affected our lives. From that, you can also make assumptions about the future and today.
-The books are not so heavy theoretically, so they are quite easy to read fast.

Cons:
-Lots of big books to read.
-The lectures starts at 0800 in the morning. And they are just two hours long.

My aim is to become a sports journalist, and I will apply for a place at a journalist school in Gothenburg this autumn.

Other than that I also do some voluntary work.

Student.

Pros:
Very nice class and funny things happen everyday.

Cons:
Almost none for me, however the homeworks can be a bit of annoying.

I also do some programming so I can learn something and because it's challengeing/fun. (http://www.free-webspace.biz/LBAWinOwnz/bilspel.zip (WARNING! in case of you for some strange reason want to download, make sure the images are in the same folder!!!!!))

I work in two different places at the hospital called Soroka, which is one of Israel's major hospitals (and the biggest, too)- in the computers unit, and in the computers unit (usually as a technician/installer/instructor), and in the education centre of the child surgery department (which usually revolves around helping sick kids play computer games and such).

Pros:
The job is satisfying.
I gained a lot of technical knowledge.

Cons:
Transportation is difficult and annoying (a bus every 2 hours).
Working in two different places that fight over me is flattering, but sometimes I don't get what I want to do.

Pay:
732 shekels for the "national service", 1,080 from the kibbutz. Compensated with almost 0 expenses, I'd say this is an ideal salary.

Student (penultimate year of school).

Never had a proper job, but playing in a jazz band I've had dozens of paid gigs.

Pros: It's, like, fun. And can pay well. (£70 for 2 hours was nice.)
Cons: None really.

Soldier, lowly rookie
Soon to be Reconnaisance Warrior (tranlsated from hebrew)

pros:
- shooting is fun
- in combat service people become great friends, never in my life have people done so much for me. (lending me money like it was nothing, or for example during a long run which was very hard for me people pushed me on, encouraged me and ran next to me the whole way)
- i feel like i'm doing an important service (will be doing an important service to be precise, now i'm just training) which is nice.
cons:

- it's fucking hard and desperating, right now i'm slightly limping because of a long march i had yesterday. sometimes i almost feel like crying 'cause i miss my family who're in switzerland.
- not much point in listing all the cons in army service, there are many.

"con" is a common abbreviation for convict. Here they put convicts in Jail not in the Army.
