First post in this section to me too - yay!

Again something we've touched on in another post, but how about we all say what we do for a living?

I'll start the ball rolling. I an a Management Information Adviser, so I deal with databases, write reports on data, deliver training, provide support and try not to get caught browsing wiki at work. I did a degree in IT, which I finished just after I'd turned 40 as I'd tried and failed to make a career in the music industry for about 10 years or so when I was younger. When this (unfortunately) failed, I was no further skilled or qualified than when I started down this road and so ended up having to take factory work for a wfew years. When it became clear that I'd struggle to get out of this type/level of work as things were, I decided to go to Uni to learn new skills and get myself a better job, which I'm pleased to say worked out pretty well so far

Anyone else? :)

PS - if you don't work, what did you do or what would you like to do?

I work part-time at my village school as a classroom assistant. This was a change in career for me, I previously worked as a secretary in a building society for a long time and also had a couple of jobs working in solicitors office (which I hated and I now know why).

I then gave up work to live abroad for seven years (husband's job move) Zimbabwe, South Africa then Belgium. When I returned to England helped out in son's school and my new career began. I love what I do and it has helped me get through the last 12 months.

Please cheer us all up and tell us that your job loss means that someone else in number 10 is about to lose theirs? ;)


As for my job...well the bird does what it says on the tin...although I did have a little diviation for a few years pre uni when I was an undertaker - my ex says that not much has changed in that I still bury peoples spouses fairly regularly :P.
