People either directly or tangentially refer to their job all the time. What type(s) of work do you do? (Not public.)

Working as an intern for the Tennessee Smokies Front Office for the next month, then hopefully landing something in a Group Sales or Marketing/Promotions somewhere else in the sports world...

I work for the Department of Veterans Affairs at the Cheyenne VA Medical Center.

It's a two-year federal government feeder internship that prepares me for full-time work for the VA. I pretty much do whatever comes up and help out the engineers and contractors where I can. I'll be working the first year in Cheyenne, then transferring to another facility for my second year, where I will stay. (Spots on my list include St. Cloud and Anchorage.)

Overall, pretty nice gig - it seems like they want me to stick around as long as possible, which is good in this economy.

Kepler forgot "research scientist"... I think there's a few of us floating around.

I grabbed a list from an employment census and did my best to make it germane. I thought I'd included science. My bad. :(

There are still people here that think voting for Freddy Meyer is funny? Welcome to 2003.

Us? You do stats. That's not science, that's manipulation of the truth...basically the opposite of science! :p

i'll remember that the next time you produce a report ;) "What do you mean that the experiments aren't exactly repeatable?"

I research new methods and investigate the application of known techniques in different ways. Sounds like science to me.

You're gonna let a guy, with a woman on his shoulder, ride you?

How old are you?! ;)

Teacher. I've always worked with troubled kids. It's a wonder I haven't become "troubled" myself. Wait...
