    Mostly I surf guitar porn and read this forum. Occasionally I have to fix a radar test set, then spend more time documenting the work than doing it.

    I also daydream about working at PRS.

    Then I go home.

    I am a Wealth Management Advisor and Portfolio Manager at a major Wall Street firm. I am partners with my father and brother. Our Wealth Management Group has roots at the firm dating back 32 years. My father holds the CFP(R) Designation.. My brother and I are CFA(R) Charterholders. I oversee asset management for our group. I am also the Portfolio Manager of our proprietary strategies.

    We help people attempt to reach their goals and objectives with the least amount of risk possible and with the highest probability of long term success. We also help them with multigenerational wealth, transition, and legacy planning in a manner consistent with their desires. In other words we try to make our clients lives easier and try to prevent them from doing things that could severely and permanently impair their well being and that of their families while at the same time helping them to structure their affairs in a manner that is consistent with their needs in planning for the current and next generations. Our clientele spans across the country.

    I guess that makes me a ho.
    Same here.

    It says "graphic designer" on my business card (I have none left, made filters out of all) but I'm pretty sure I shouldn't be involved in production management and human resources. Or copywriting. Or handling packages.

    I work in renewable energy building and assembling wind turbines before they get sent to site. I've not been in it too long but I was waiting for the right opportunity to get involved with this company and fingers crossed I can use it as a platform into the industry.

    Brother, you know I know how much you love your job, but for a frustrated designer, this is kinda really interesting employment (at least at the theoretical level)

    Yep, I am currently the only one at my Space Flight Center. I perform vibroacoustic analysis to predict the random vibration response for components on spacecraft. Occasionally, I'll serve as a test conductor for some of the hardware as it goes into our acoustic chamber. Here's a picture of the business end of the acoustic chamber.

    The horns are 6 feet in diameter, and the chamber is 42 feet high. It's capable of sound pressures levels as high as 150 dB. The horns use liquid nitrogen as a powering fluid for the noise generators and consumes enough LN2 in a typical test to lower the atmospheric percentage of oxygen from 21% to 17% in the chamber.

    BTW, I was at that launch, STS-125, which is the video pictured above. I was working as a bus captain escorting visitors at the launch site. One of the highlights of my career.
