    Sorry if this has already been asked but…


    What the buggery bollocks do you lot do?
    I am quite new to EG Forums and have noticed a few (lot) of you post throughout the day.

    Are you all at home or have you just all got slacker jobs like me?


    I'm IT system admin for Bank (that’s my excuse)

    I'm a freelance TV camera man and budding film/TV stills photographer, so I have a LOT of days off when I'm not booked on a show. Like today. Well, like this month, actually.

    There's a much bigger thread somewhere though - someone will find it I'm sure.

    I work in IT supporting messaging systems. I am massively over paid and am often referred to as a guru though I am coming to believe this is more a relative term in comparison to the special people I work with.

    It's kind of like if you took any human at random and placed them in a cage full of monkey's they would then become the guru of that group.

    well said, and all you have to to is put them all in suits and the best dressed with the loudest voice becomes the manager.

    I think you'll find just about every job you can imagine on here.

    I run a business selling printed lanyards, mobile socks (new product plug!!) etc.

    I'm a teacher assistant, a classroom assistant for special needs children and have an upcoming job where I will be teaching a 7 year old girl who has learning difficulties - private teaching in other words.

    So I have three jobs at the moment but none of them resume until September.

    The UK's economy would rocket - the Bank of England adds and deletes interesting threads to slow down and increase the economy, most of the regs are just BofE socks.

    It wouldn't, trust me.
    I was blocked from Eurogamer for a couple of years. I just found other sources of games info/time wasting.

    I am the EU IT Manager for a communications company. I used to be a struggling rocker. You can still buy my album on ITUNES but I've never seen a penny from Sales. Hence the IT job:)

    FCUTA!

    I'm a Graphic/Web Designer for a small publishing business in Northern Ireland. Work is a bit slow at the minute though. Hence why I'm constantly lurking on EG and hitting the F5 key.

    I don't have a proper job. I'm just an archive clerk at the hospital sorting out medical records. It's only a 'as and when' contract thing so I need to find a new job in a few weeks.

    Loads atm. :/

    I'm a Land lord and I currently work in Risk Assessment as my main job. However I still do a bit of freelance Video Editing and Production when I find the time. Also, I've taught IT skills to young people with disabilities for a few months a year for the last decade or so.

    On an educatinoal level I believe in life long learning. I have completed a BSc and MSc in Computer Science, A BSc in Media Studies, and I'm currently starting a BSc in English language. I also attend a course in Mandarin Chinese at SOAS University.

    Urm... that reads like a personal statement o_O

    Holy Crap! You've just made me realise that I'm a lazy fucker. 4 years of uni finished me. If I had an extra year at uni i would have never passed. I was getting lazier and lazier each year.

    Fair play to you Razz - I'm having to go part time at work and am going to be absolutely skint and probably knackered for the next four years, just to finish ONE degree.
