    Retired union electrician in Boston, 37 years, glad it's over. It's a young man's game.

    I have also owned a KOA Kampground and currently have photography business, but getting tired of doing that.

    Pellet stove cleaner.

    DOLLARBILL, point the college grad to the job (career) sites and say make it on someone else's nickel. It may take awhile but a lot of employers will pay for the courses.

    I work on the innernets. So, it's hard to explain but I co own a
    small business and I'm the programmer/developer of the company.
    I was going solo from 2001-2011 ish, but merged with two other
    guys (one designer one marketer) so now we are well rounded!

    I've been in prison for the last 25 plus yrs. I'm about to retire though.

    I wish I could see some of the facial expressions right about now.

    Currently retired and loving it. I spend my summers fly fishing for trout and golfing, while my winters are spent keeping my quarter mile drive blown out and ice fishing for large lake trout. I spent twenty years as an engineer in the glass container industry, until 1987, when I took a voluntary separation package and moved to the mountains of Colorado. I worked in the ski industry until retiring in 2008, not as an engineer.

    I chose my occupation as my screen name. Which ironically, shows an extreme lack of imagination. I should be ashamed! :p

    Retired!
    I spent 40+ years designing electronic equipment that ranged from a beacon only precision bombing system, to factory automation computers, to life support equipment (heart assist), to blood analyzers, to commercial avionics.
    Somebody told me that Engineers are high paid migrant workers. The migrant part certainly proved true, but I'm not so sure about the high paid part.

    Operations Manager for a small independent business equipment company. As another has mentioned, most days I do it all and have been doing this for over 20 years.

    I feel like Drew Carey : I have to keep the owner and workers happy all at the same time. No easy task
