Careers and Networking... never know...

I was just sittin here wondering what everyone does. Networking is huge and can help just about anyone in any career. So I say why not start a thread that kinda tells about what we all do for a living, may help some people out, may not...

My full-time job is Sales Exec. for Shred-It Corporation. We do onsite document destruction. Basically take care of companies sensitive documents no matter what the paper flow is.

I also do real estate on the side right now, eventually it will become my full-time job. So let me know if you need a place!

I am a Graphic Designer for Keller Crescent Company advertising/printing in Evansville. We're the largest ad agency in Indiana and one of the largest in the nation. We are also one of the largest printers in the state. We are unusual in that we can handle everything from concept to finished product under one roof. TV/Radio/Print/Packaging/Ad Buys/Market research/PR etc. Most ad agencies and print shops do one of the above.

A little trivia, we lease our soundstage for taping of "My Classic Car with Dennis Gage".

I've been a KC employee since 1985. I've been in advertising design since 1981.

Check out "The Logo" thread.

Well, I'm an out-of-work plastics professional

I've worked as a mold and product designer fo 12 years. 10 years were for a small design firm, and the last two years have been doing contract work for various companies.
I'm trying to find another full-time job, but the plastics industry has all but died around here.
I am trying to get my foot in the door at an architectural firm and start a new career in that field.

I have many contacts in Indiana industry, especially plastic molders and mold and tool shops.

I am a contract tech, woooo hooo. I test airbag sensors and the controllers for Dephi. I do not get to see the airbags deploy sadly, just see the current go up then back down on the scope. Dunno how much longer I can do this an not get bored to death... Hopefully I can pass the apprenticeship testing next week, and get in or my foot in the door somewhere and get a better career job.

I really like that show. One of the few car shows around that I can sit and watch with my kids and not have to cringe as the language gets saltier and saltier.

I'm a Service Manager/Service Technician at a New Holland/Bobcat Equipment dealer. I'm a tech by choice (for now..)...not so much choice being the Service Manager. The job got dumped on me when the last SM quit. I hate it, despise it, and want out of it. The store's owner and the General Manager are well of my displeasure, but seem to be doing nothing about it...despite the promises they made a couple of months ago.

After 16 years in this shop I have mixed emotions about leaving, but I really don't think I'll feel good about what I do for about 50 hours a week if I stay. If I'd stumble across the right opportunity I think I'd be "outta there". Too bad there aren't any restoration or hot rod-type shops around here. I'd love to get away from the "general repair" type of work and get more into the "building" aspect.

That's a relief. By your screen name I was afraid you were constantly breaking wind.
(With your experience in the field, you've probably heard a million smart aleck comments. Certainly did not mean to offend.)

By the way: I work in the fields of Alcohol and Drug prevention, and I work with DUI offenders in Illinois.

I'm the warehouse manager/foreman for the largest distributor of concrete construction hardware/chemicals in the world. I also get the job of teaching people forklift safety/operation. I have been in the construction field for 13 years. I would love to find something with more manager, and less foreman. Don't know if I could ever really 'adjust' to a place with just a steady flow, I really love spring when things get unbelievably hectic, and fall when everyone is scrambling to get things done before winter.


To which ever member was in plastics. My wife and I just had some friends relocate to Florida, because the plastics industry was completely dead in the entire Midwest. The only places they found jobs were in either CA, or FL/GA border area. They couldn't stand the politics in CA.

Been at my new job at Productive Resources for 3 weeks now. We're a contract engineering and drafting firm with almost 90 employees. So far so good, but all I've been doing is training stuff until my project gets taken off hold, which is hopefully tomorrow.
