Job - Undergrad research on UHPC (Ultra High Performance Concrete)--basically I research journal articles, build formwork & cast UHPC into T-beams, and then smash them to determine behavior & properties.
Degree - Will be finished with a bachelors' in civil engineering one year from now. Planning on working for a bit and then going back to graduate school for a masters' degree in architecture.
My job? I'm an intake coordinator for Maryland state government's Public Defender's office. I work half in an office, half in a detention center, interviewing potential clients with charges ranging from incarcerable traffic violations to murder and murder conspiracy. I get to hear a lot of interestingly morbid stories. I get to talk on those neat phones in the jail where you sit across from someone separated by glass. I love it. It does, however, merit a certain amount of knowledge that can work towards shattering any previous expectations of humanity. Ever want to talk to someone who smokes crack and does heroin despite the fact that they're about to give birth to twins in two weeks? Please, come join me!
Despite my job, however, I'm not anywhere near interested in becoming an attorney. I don't have enough care for people who **** up their lives to want to defend them in a court of law. As for my degree, I'm currently going to school to get a degree in American literature, and then I want to continue on with a masters, and potentially work towards a PhD. I would love to teach at a university and help get people interested in some of the greatest written works of our world!
I'm a maintenance mechanic in a midsize factory. 25 years in the field with two shops. I design, build and repair all types of equipment from HVAC to robots. Oh yea I clean the gutters and unclog toilets too.
I had a welding shop for two years and ran a lawnmower shop for 9.
I'm a HS grad, read engineering texts for fun and have attended hundres of tech. seminars.
Job - Not really worth mentioning
Degree - Working on a Bachelors right now, then from there, who knows. Right now my tentative major is in Biology which I love, but it means doing a lot of Math, Chemistry, and Physics, things I don't like so much. Maybe medicine down the road... I might switch into arts and do English and History instead. In any case, I am working on a university degree.
