    I deliver furniture. Doesn't do well for biking at all. As my job breaks your body down. There's just no way around it. However, since starting this mtb thing, I've noticed I have less trouble breathing while carrying heavy stuff up stairs! Dressers, and dual reclining sofas. Rest of body is still pretty well shot though.

    Army officer. In charge of a small group of awesome soldiers who are trained in chemical warfare agent detection and decontamination. I get to ride pretty much every weekend that I'm not working.

    It seems the only real trend among us is that we all love to mountain bike.

    Professional Pyromaniac. Yes, really! I get paid to set stuff on fire. I'm a Test Engineer, and the lab where I work does flammability testing for the furniture and bedding industries. All very controlled of course, but I get to let out my inner pyro a couple of times a week.

    I'm a GIS Specialist for a civil engineering firm. We're focused on water/wastewater and its pretty old at this point. I've been at the same place nearly 7 years. I think of a career change all the time, just not sure what I would find enjoyable. Plus its a bit of an odd time to walk away from a stable gig.

    I've been on plenty of jobs popping manholes and taking downs for large surveys. The first day is a welcome change from cubicle life but when you're popping a surcharged MH at 3 pm on a mid-August day on a busy street the office doesn't seem so bad. But all in all I think I'd be more happy if I were outside, even if it was watching turds float by.

    Thought about going to school to become an LS in NJ but there are no jobs right now. I get to do large scale RTK surveys on occasion and I like it but I just cant bring myself to pull the trigger on 2+ years of classes during full time work, then having to go through licensing process. I'll be 35+ by that time and who knows what the surveyor job market will be then.

    I don't work directly for Cisco, but I've taught classes out of the Richardson/Plano office, I was just there last week actually. Cisco is a good company. They expect a lot but generally take care of their employees. They're still the 800 lb gorilla, so if you know their stuff you're employable by default.

    Do you have a logical mind and like computers? Because portions of the IT industry are still growing despite the current economy. VoIP, VMware (or other virtualization), networking and network security, government and private are all hiring like crazy now. Yes you need a year or two to get up to speed, but the good news is you can get up to speed with about $0 if you know how to use the internet and know how to learn.

    I hear the military is hiring too.

    Thanks for the tip. I have a few friends in the IT industry, I will hit them up and see what's to be had. Never really gave it much of thought since all the stuff they do is way over my head.

    Yet another damn IT guy.

    Have focused mostly on Oracle for the last 12 years but have worked with MS SQL, MySQL and MongoDB. Have supported other apps and stuck my fingers into all kinds of stuff that makes large websites work; ad serving, mass mailing, storage, etc.

    Since spontaneous networking seems to be happening here, I'll say I'm gonna be looking for a new gig after the new year. Intend to stick with databases. Anything that runs on some kind of unix is fine. SF is the preferred location.

    Had to get on a real computer, it was rough trying to type on an iphone. Wow, lots of DB guys here. To expand on a few things, I'm on the network infrastructure side of things. I've got my CCIE security but my background is enterprise routing/switching. These days I do a lot of firewall, IPS and VPN work in addition to just making stuff ping.

    What I meant above is the resources to learn are all out there. For instance in my own field all the cisco certification books are on the web (Safari online) you can run virtual routers, firewalls, IPS in GNS3 (google it) and get plenty good at configuring networks on a single computer. There are forums with true experts if you get stuck or need direction. This is a great way to start networking for a job as well.

    From there it's just landing a junior spot somewhere and you're off. The demand is there, you'd just have to apply yourself and meet it.

    Another DB guy here. Never imagined my Stats degree would lead me to this. I work with MS SQL and proprietary merge-purge software. Also write stored procedures and .bat processes so I can let my computer do it's [very repetitive] thing in the background while I surf mtbr. Current MBA student so I don't have to do this my whole life.

    Full time 1st year law student. Market sucks right now (and for the foreseeable future) but it is what I actually want to do.

    Any attorneys on MTBR need some help over the summer? <---Read this after December 1.

    Besides working, what I do for a living, or to "live" is to kill dirt with the tires of my bike.

    To ride my bike is to live..therefore, I ride my bike for a living of life...

    My job doesn't really match my title, but I'm ok with that, I work as an account manager for an automotive supply company, as well as handle purchasing for my division. We make transmissions for a Heavy Duty truck manufacturer.

    I'm a software engineer/architect/consultant. I design and build custom Automated Document Factory software solutions for large customers in the transactional print industry (i.e. companies that print customer statements on the scale of many millions of statements per month).

    Basically what this means is, did you get your Visa bill, your phone bill, and your insurance EOB statement this month? Your welcome!

    After being a ski instructor and bike mechanic for 10 years I decided to use my degree and get a job as a manufacturing engineer for an aerospace composites company. How many years of school did I sit through and I have yet to drive a train... this engineering thing is crap.

    Yet another IT Guy... have my BSIT and my MBA.. Was the Web Services manager for a Supreme Court but was laid off in Feb. Been with the Division of Welfare and Support Services as a Business Analyst/Tester for about six months now. Large pay cut sucks but you cannot put a price on the health of a loved one when you are unemployed and paying $1500/mo for COBRA.

    I have done a bit of everything from MS SQL, MySQL, Open Source website building, HTML, Project Management (my fav, I know I am sick) and looking to get my PMP and BAP soon here. Just waiting to get my year in with the state to see where things take me. Also do some consulting on the side.

    I operate a big lathe that peels logs into veneer that is laminated into plywood.
    Basically I sit in a shack, push buttons, and listen to music REALLY loud.

    I beat my penis like it owes me money. Oh wait, that doesn't pay...

    I work as a Docketer on the IP side (patents mainly) of a large law firm. The people are "interesting" and the clients are great. It is neat to see the tech that is coming down the line before you see it in real life. It pays well because they need a person with a particular skill and the ability to deal with attorneys that have backgrounds that are typically not social-skills friendly (biology/engineering). Sometimes I have to work crazy hours to meet deadlines. They know they can count on me, so they keep me around. In past lives I have been an IT Helpdesk guy and an HR Consultant.
