I'm not sure if this was started anywhere before, but since the whole "POST a picture of yourself blew up" and alot of people are in their work digs, I was wondering what people actually work as to fund the gaming habit. I fix computers for a living, exciting I know.

Currently working as a Technical Support Agent for HTC smartphones. I get to help folks try to figure out why their phones are not doing what they want. Which is super fun when you have never used a smartphone in your life and have zero desire to own one! It's been interesting learning the Android OS and finding out that so few people use Windows 7 phones that our training on them during a three week course was about 30-60 minutes one random afternoon.

I sling fish all day, everyday. That is to say, I work part-time in the seafood department of a grocery store. Minimum wage is where it's at, man. Well, at least until I finish my degree, as I've been lead to believe that getting my piece of paper increases my chances of getting a job that pays more than minimum wage.

^He gets an allowance for cleaning up around the house, hence the use of technically twice.

edit: as for me, a college student who works during the summer months, I take work wherever it comes. Last summer I installed flooring, this summer I will be working fast food. (I am REALLY not looking forward to this summer job btw.)

I'm 24, and I work as a Service Clerk at a Smoke Shop. Also just got an interview to be a bank teller next week. So that's going to be two jobs I will be working. =O. Also trying to motivate myself to go back and finish my degree in Web Design and Multimedia. I just hate school though.
