becomming a certified welder used to be one of my lifetime goals, but i haven't done it in a few years. Welding is very fun, sounds like you have a great job.

my job i guess would be school, but i got a summer job workin the counter at a cleaners.

i've variously been a student residence superintendent/handyman, a custom car welder/fabricator, a university microbiology researcher, a genetic engineer and now am doing a highly unthrilling university admin job - all of these nothing more than ways to pay for my real life: music.

I'm a consultant with an IT multinational. I redesign and implement accounting processes with the introduction of an ERP system. I design customisations that are to support business specific processes that are not covered by the standard the ERP provides and I coordinate the coding of those extensions, which, after delivery, I have to convince my clients of that these will cover their needs.
I do this on a project basis, my clients are (usually) large multinationals. My involvement in those projects averages at about one year.
The nature of this business, as well as my personal evolvement and professional growth move me more and more towards crisis management, which these days is invariably required in these massive projects....

... you asked.....

Wassup???

Am into shipping (containerized cargo) and working on expansion projects into port & mainland logistics services. Going to take a final long break next year to get back to student & traveller life when I head for my MBA.

I worked in a supermarket but quit recently because it was horrible, so now I'm looking for something less crap.

Is this really the right forum?
