Chall03; As a TV Director, I'm sure that you are managing a bunch of crazy actors/actresses and being highly distressed while doing so.

Technology was the closest for my career. I operate two commercial office towers. ensure the boilers and chillers are functioning as planned. complete preventative maintenance on a multitude of HVAC, circ pumps, fire alarm systems. Although my title is Building Operator, I am more of a Jack of all Trades - master of NONE!

I am an unemployed electronics technician with 35 years of experience but, given the current job market, I think I need to change careers. I have a couple of job interviews lined up in Somalia next week for a position as a Pirate. I may have to start out as an intern.

Your typical ol' R&D guy at a vibrator manufacturing plant located on the French Riviera. I'm in charge of testing for quality, which is done "in the field," as it were. The field is waterbed in a bungalo with a spectacular view of the sea.

I checked Technical

But that was a bit of a stretch... I work as a self-employeed commercial photographer. I use Digital cameras exclusively and work mostly with computers. The sailboat keeps me grounded in reality.
