I am in the insurance business as an independent insurance agency owner and an insurance cluster organization part-owner. I use quality insurance carriers to protect New Beetles, other vehicles, their homes, and businesses (including their workers) that bring home the bacon that pay the bills. :D

Chief Quality Officer at a hospital. In charge of all matters pertaining to healthcare quality. Federal and State compliance and JCAHO compliance.
At night I become a paramedic with the local EMS. It's the only way I can keep my hands in the clinical end of healthcare now.
Love my job. Kind of disillusioned with the company right now.

I work for Activision, making games at one of thier studios.

My title changes with every project - I've been credited as an Environmental Artist, Lead Level Designer (Multiplayer), Builder, and now Senior Builder. It all means that I get paid to sit around thinking up ways for people to have fun (hopefully), and then I build the world they will have fun in.

Yes, it is a sweet gig. No matter what horror stories you may have heard about the game dev biz (and I can tell you from first-hand experience that many of those stories are true), it is a sweet, sweet gig. Even after 3 years, I still have to pinch myself sometimes. :)

I'm the luckiest boy in the world!

Well, I can't tell you exactly what I do at the bank, but I can say, "I don't go home until everything is done". Would you like us to go home before the deposit you made today is processed? I didn't think so...... :D (tonight, I got home after midnight...... :eek: )


Bill is a electrician foreman, and his company is currently subcontracting a project at an Intel facility in Hillsboro, Oregon.

By day i am "Assistant Manager of Revenue Enhancement" also known as an accounts receivable rep and 2nd in command for my department. My company does billing for ER and House physicians at hospitals as well as a few private practices and clinics in North Jersey and Marian County, PA. We did some stuff nationally for a while, but no longer. I handle patient disputes and follow up on health insurance claims. I sit in a cubicle for 8 hours listening to XM and trying hard to do as little as possible so that i always have something to do. So yeah, i know how to get medical bills paid. Doing this crap for 6 years and started out as a file clerk temp.

By night i do medical coding for one of my company's radiology groups. Been doing this about 2 years. I suck at it, but as long as they pay me i will continue doing it.

Can you smell the excitement in my life??

Wow, this is really boring after all those interesting jobs listed above... but, it's what I do.

I work in our school's administration office in the afternoon. In the morning I'm the high school librarian.

Only interesting thing I have to tell is that our high school is underground, built with some government fund help back when they thought we all needed a nuclear-attack shelter. Closest we come to that use is that it serves as the county's tornado shelter... they open it up and everybody in town shows up with their dog or cat or both...gets wilder in there than the weather, usually!:eek5:
