Call centre monkey - I don't want to think about how long. Though I should get a nice redundancy package at some point this year, fingers crossed.

I flog car parts. Well, I am the assistant manager of a Motor Factors.
Before that I worked in retail flogging car parts for Halfords, with a stint in their garages for a couple of years before they sold them to the AA.

Before that a whole heap of jobs that paid cash in hand, mainly through the winters, then just pissing about in boats for the summers.

Education wise I never did as much as I should. I have 10 GCSE's and 4 A-Levels, but really ran out of interest in learning.

<Wazzerphuk> you only need to go to uni if you can't face up to living in the real world when you're young - I.e. you're a scared avoidant pussy
You've changed :(

I put numbers into a computer all day. It's very interesting. Sometimes I even make tea for people. Temping's fun.

Someone suggest a serious job for me pls, all the ones I've been looking at look reaaaaaally boring. I have a Business degree so wanna be running tings as well. I've already considered being a drug dealer, but that's illegal so no.

3rd year Computation student at the Umist of Manchester (errr). Currently working a placement year at Fujitsu Siemens Computers, working for their internal development team ("internal" translates to "no one knows we exist", btw).

We make NET Windows applications in .NET for web content and document management, plus maintain a gigantic system to generate multinational, multilingual web sites. It's rather good, actually. We also spend an unbalanced amount of time cursing Microsoft SharePoint (which is so far removed from 'rather good' words can't do enough).

Back at Uni in September, though.
