    I'm a track maintenance machine operator for a big railway company, started in April 2013. I love the job and enjoy working outside. The pay is great, there's a lot of overtime, good pension plan and benefits. Never thought I'd end up doing this kind of work but I definitely plan on staying around.

    What do you guys do?

    I'm still a full time student but I work to pay my way through school. Working two jobs currently. The first is a book keeper for a locally owned business close by. The second one is an operations administrator for a storage company. I handle HR, payroll, expenses and book keeping.

    Both my jobs are flexible, which is great as a student.

    Probably an Audi A5 or some type of Audi. I don't actually have a big interest in cars even though I do valeting.

    Right on, what are you studying? And what kind of job do you think you'll be looking for once you're done?

    I studied accounting and history for a few years, wanted to become a teacher. Dropped out and got this job, I got a little lucky but don't regret the decision at all.

    I'm a career student I think lol.

    I finished a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Psychology. After that I went and applied for the commerce program, and in 2 weeks I'll have a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting. After that I'm going to write the LSAT and try and apply for law school. If I get in, great, if not, I'll find work as an accountant and do my CPA.

    Finished undergrad with degrees in English and Communication back in March, then got an internship at an ad agency/production company. Finished that a few months ago and have been road tripping around the USA for the last month or so.

    When I get back I gotta decide if I wanna go to grad school or try to find a real job, lol.

    Im in college, was majoring in the physics field, but my teacher and research led me to majoring in nano technology. Stats show in the next 2 years they're will be 1 million needed nano technology qualified candidates so I figured that would be the better job outlook to take.
    I help my dads construction business on the side, mostly masonry work.
