My last post in this thread was too brief, so here I go again.
As for past occupations, my first real job was when I worked for a general contractor in high school. I did way too much roofing, some painting, some additions, plowing, etc. Then I graduated high school and went to UMaine. I worked a couple summers for a septic tank service. I rode around in a cucka sucka, worked in the waste processing/composting plant, and did some mechanic work on the trucks. I made good money, but yes, it did stink. After that I worked as an Engineering Technician for a materials testing company down in New York. I even took a semester off of school so I could complete the 7 month internship. They sent me all up and down the east coast and even to Puerto Rico once. It was a great experience, so I went back to work for them the following summer. After that I did an internship for Pike Industries and got to do a lot of work on the I295 rebuilding project. Finally, the summer before I graduated, I got a job with a precast concrete company(American Concrete Industries) 10 mins from school. I worked full-time during the summer and went to part-time during the fall semester. I ended up graduating in December 2010 with a BS in Civil Engineering.
Also, I have another job on the side. I'm a Licensed Pyrotechnician by the State of Maine. I do fireworks displays for Central Maine Pyrotechnics. It's a fun job and it pays really well, but I generally only do about 4 shows a year.
There, that a better quality post than the last.
