I figure that since we enjoy 40k and the like, to some extent by and large we're technically minded people. I thought of this topic after working with some programmable logic controllers and grinning when the bloody contraption worked, to my shame. (The grinning like a loon, not the working.)
So I wondered what people actually do; so if youd be so kind, post your occupation title and a bit about it.
I am a mechanical engineering student. Most of my studying revolves (AHA!) around forces and the way they are borne/transmitted by and through materials, some thermodynamics (studying of energy transfers) and a fair amount of CAD modelling and electronics to make me a very well rounded professional geek.
Whats your geeky occupation?
"It fits like clothes made out of wasps!"
Well, when checking my future profession in the Geeks dictionary it translates into "map maker".
I'm soon to be a Master of Spatial Planning, building cities and such... We also go by names like Urban Designers, I think in US Spatial Planning is more commonly reffered to as "Zoning".
I failed my final year of uni, so I'm currently retaking it. I study Maths, with a view to do a PGCE next year
I also work as a barman, although since starting back at uni I've pretty much stopped doing this. I'd rather be drinking the pints than serving them :drinking:

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
currently a student. normal courses, and a computer engineering course. yeah, i get to mess around with computers. one period a day. i am win. by the end of the year, i will try to put a computer in a fridge and over-clock it. I'm gonna shrink wrap the parts to protect them from freezing condensation. water is bad.
trying to get a job at a theater. free movies, and it's an easy job.... and my friend quit to work somewhere else. so I'm a shoe in.
I sell toilet paper. - honestly!;?

Systems Analyst - just a NAFTA friendly way to say programmer, do some hardware related stuff also though. Most of the guys at my club seem to either be active duty or have 'regular' jobs though.
3D animator. There is always something fun and new to do. Though, it does have its boring days.
I've had three post-university occupations:
* Actor/Voice talent for advertising (very limited to date)
* Typesetter/Desktop Publisher (first job out of college, and I worked for ex-Nazis ... not joking)
* Database/Web programmer for unions and political campaigns (current job)
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.
