I'm still in high school, but I occasionally tutor people in math (Grades 9-10). They're usually friends of mine or kids of people who are friends with my parents. In the future, assuming I get into and graduate from university, I'd like to go into computers.


Dream job is working as an ESPN football analyst, but there's little chance of that happening.

5 years of temp work, everything from polishing boats, planting gardens, to drilling parts for Porsche motors and military rockets...
15 years of leading many different stores' fresh produce departments for Migros (the largest food/non food/fresh produce retailer in Switzerland), and for the last five years working for Exxon Mobile (since 1 July no longer, otherwise I wouldn't be aloud to mention it in public(love those big global companies that seem to think their policies are worth more than individual rights, although they paid me well. So I shouldn't bite the hand that fed me...)).
Now working for an energy/oil company from eastern europe, newly setting foot in the western market and wanting to establish a new premium brand, very exciting and challenging as we are starting from scratch. I am assistant team lead for accounts payable - making sure accounting has the necessary and correct input for their number crunching (sales/margins) and that the individual gas station shops have correct numbers for their inventory/sales profits.
Plus a single parent of a teenage son, and caretaker of 24 apartments.

Property Developer,

Sadly it isn't a grownup version of lego building but is a great job for my age, and does help in bringing in cash for legos and other passions.

Wow that is like the opposite of my grandparents lives! They were born in Scotland, then moved to Canada with a job offer when they were in their 20's, and then moved down to Georgia after all their kids went through US college. Small world  :classic:

I'm just out of high school, and working to enlist in the US Navy ASAP, to be a helicopter crew chief, then after about 20 years I hope to be able to work with LEGO in some way.

This is sorta job related. I had an interview with goggle and my Lego "obsession"  :blush:  (as my girl friend would call it) came up. The interview was over a skype type system and the interviewer could see some of my sets in the background. He was surprised I was into Lego and said he liked the creative aspect of the "toy"  :hmpf_bad: I think it might have just got me the job since I know have a second interview.

With the reason they mostly disable other people's- invalid clicks. I guess a competitor kept clicking on my ads. :cry_sad:

Former corporate lawyer who helped large multinationals fire vulnerable employees and escape their contractual obligations.

I later sought a more amoral profession, and became a tax consultant, specializing in corporate taxation and further specializing in the financial services industry, where I help some of the most ludicrously overpaid companies in the world save even more money.

Same here except for the former lawyer part.

I'm Associate Corporate Tax being able to do my tax consultant exam in 3.5 years. Tax consultant exam is one of the most difficult exams here in Germany.
