Where do you Work?

Where do you work?

I am a student and to me bagging groceries does not count as a real job. I used to work in Cherokee County's Magistrate Court, wish I would have fit in better there!

Anyway, I am trying to find my way... just wondering what jobs are better than others, and how to get them!

Absolutely amazing. I never knew that U-haul had any job description of "Truck Rental Inspector". The brake linings could be vaporized and U-haul would just put it right back in the rental pool.

You must be the only person with that title in the whole company.

I'm about three weeks from quiting my last job, and its the one I hate the most!!

Oh I'm in college full time, but it doesn't take much of my time so I do other things.
http://www.resintoproperty.com/

I'll probably be working with these guys soon. It should be an interesting way to travel a lot and deal in some high end real estate. There CEO Charles Denney seems like a cool guy, I'm flying out to work with them in a couple of weeks.

Currantly I work with Remax, I guess thats my "day job" not really full time yet.

Oh and I have a deal (kind of a bet) going to aquire commercail property in two months with not a penny of my money.

Thats what I do I guess, I'm just trying to find a section of the real estate world that I enjoy the most. Its kind of a mess now, also not making any money grumble, grumble.

Hours? 24/7/365 I'm sending emails about properties back and forth as I type this.

131 Bradley Road
Woodbridge, CT
Free standingbuilding in Woodbridge's popular office parks. Possible expansion. Perfect for owner occupied. Also available for lease @ $8.00 gross...
$699,000
12,800SF
Bingo, we just found a potential as I was typing, multi tasking rules!

I am a design manager for company that makes automotive chassis components. I actually design the components/sub-systems, but I 'manage' many programs at one time. I work with the CAD systems:
ProENGINEER - The ax that I wield
Unigraphics - OK
CATIA V5 - Very disappointing
CATIA V4 - A dinosaur that I am waiting for to die
I-deas - The bottom of the septic tank

I studied engineering and know the Catia and Autocad systems.

I work for Credit Bureau of Canada. How did that happen?
