I am a Network Administrator & Customer Service Administrator for a small company that manufactures digital proofing equipment.

I get to not only do the geek-stuff like setup servers and help users, I also put in orders, coordinate shipping nationally as well as internationally, and talk to customers on the phone.

Where to begin? I once owned a bakery \:D then managed another one; was a mortgage banker (special loans), then worked for years as a temp doing clerical work.

In 1988 I got a job for a Fortune-500 company installing mainframe hardware, then PCs, then did Helpdesk, PC Needs Assessment, Email support, then Web support.

In that same company I finally ended up as a webmaster for a gigantic Intranet; I supported some very high profile websites that would be familiar to everyone here.

Alas, I was laid off in 2001.

Happily, I have been supporting myself full-time as a musician since then. I have a demanding job as a church organist and accompany many choirs.

Hmmm... Please excuse me, it is grammatically correct, but "What.. is.. your.. job?" :rolleyes:

..is something from a robot's text book and I've been trying for years to convert my conference attending globe trotting students of English to the more switched on and current...

"What do you do?", "What line are you in?",
"What do you do for a living?"

So,... what.. is.. MY.. job then?

If you cannot infer a possible answer then maybe you need English lessons! ;\)

I started out doing electrical work but found it to be a tough job and now I'm starting a new field of TV production.

I'm looking to either be a camera operator in a studio or on-location or an editor as I'll be certified with Avid Express though the local college.

I don't even know where to start looking for work in this type of field though...

I am a full time PhD student (finishing thank God).

Other than that full time composer for concert hall pieces (got 2 commissions for 2008! and I'm truly excited that I can't stop mentioning it everywhere I go :p ) and composer for computer games (not films, mind you).

I also teach piano to a kid.

Now, how can one have 2 full time jobs and another totally part time, is a mystery even to me. :p

I taught English at our local high school for 34 years and retired in June. Now I go in 2 days a week to substitute, catch up on the gossip, see my friends, administer tests, assign worksheets, and leave all the actual WORK for the "real" teacher.
As for those dreams of having the time, finally, to play the piano? I'M THERE, BABY!!

I am a translator of several middle eastern languages. I was not really that good at languages when I started. It was simply a matter of brute force practice and hard work. And enduring, and putting aside, the ad hominen criticism by well-meaning, but ultimately counter-productive instructors.

I see many parallels between language learning and piano learning. Both require long periods of seeming non-progress in the beginning, before any real progress can be noted. This results in many dropouts, or students who are very well versed in the grammar, but can't put together a basic sentence.

Having had language instructors of all pedagogical stripes I can say that I avoid the zero-tolerance, restrictive ones, if at all possible. Now, as a sometimes teacher of language myself, my philosophy with my students is to let them speak, even though they may be making obvious mistakes. Fluency emanates from practice of the basics. Honing the finer aspects of pronounciation, conjugation can come later.

In grad school, I had instructors who would correct you as you uttered your first syllable. We ended with a group of students afraid to open their mouths.

As a language teacher, my philosophy was to praise any progress that I saw and explain mistakes, rather than make bald-face, sarcastic remarkes at the expense of the student. This, I believe, is a positive approach; that I think is more modern and up-to-date with current pedagogical approaches.

Ah Kunia, so there are two of us. I am a certified translator of two language combinations and I also train others in preparation for the exam that leads to certification so that they can meet standards and ethics. There do seem to be a lot of similarities between language and music, and it seems musicians are often linguistically inclined and vice versa. Do you find that sight reading has some similarity to translation, where one set of words flow to your eyes, and another set of words flow from your keyboard?

I only teach language one on one. I guide my students to get the cadences and flow of language, to learn to truly hear themselves and the sounds, and both these things help lead to a native-like accent. I have borrowed that and other principles from music learning. Some of the ways I approach learning music are similar to how I approach learning my next language. Consecutive interpretation assignments feel like performances (I interpret rarely) and I get more butterflies before interpreting than before performing, since the speaker's words and dialect may be unfamiliar. My nightmare is stopping mid-sentence and not knowing the needed word. When you perform you can always improvise yourself out of a situation, but you might stumble in a similar way. In both, you have learned theoretical material which you practice, but then in real life in front of other people you must be able to use those skills fluently.

I am a corporate Executive Butler, probably the only one here. I am also a translator, but determined not to accept the lousy wages translators are paid these days, I have made many enemies among potential employers with my relentless critisism of the above problem. And when I get work for proofreading, it shockingly reveals what kind of translators who are willing to put up with that kind of puny remuneration!
But, as with everything else: You get what you pay for. (Or don't pay for.)

ChatNoir, if you are qualified you can freelance and set your own rates as a translator. Even when working with agencies this is so - though some agencies don't know the difference between an employee and a subcontractor and will not get professionals to work with them. Butlering sounds so much more interesting, though.

Yes, I do only freelance, but it is still meager times out there. Luckily my "real" job pays more than enough to cover my expenses, so I can afford to yell at all the cheapskates. ;\)

I'm an engineer. I decided to take up piano so that the left side and ride side of my brain don't become too asymetrical. Although the more I get into it, the more I realized there's a lot of complex engineering in this music theory stuff. These earthlings can be very creative.

I had an internship as a programmer with IBM in San Jose during my college years. I then worked as a mortgage programmer for a bank. I was editor of a Newsletter for the Salt Lake Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. I'm also a church organist.

I'm a retired medical instrument designer, and piano player for years. Two months ago played Liszt's hungarian rhapsody #2 finally...Three weeks ago had stroke and am now back to square one starting all over from the beginning. Glad I love music, get to do it all over again...

1 Month later, still not much progress, but just keeping the grind to the nosestone...
