No not that sort of consultancy. I work for a big firm that is heavily involved in the construction industry so does a lot of work building airports and the like. However my area is aviation economics and forecasting so I tend to work on traffic forecasts for airports and airlines, route development studies, policy and so on...

I work for a State agency in Florida. I gather data, compile it, create a preliminary report, and send it to the State legislature.

Do I like it? As a matter of fact I don't. It's only a part-time job, but I've gotten to work with really incompetent people and now I have one of the most lazy bosses I have ever had.

But I'll be switching jobs once I graduate in the late Spring Big grin

Nope, the rail-head was built about 2 years ago, when the opencast mine (which is miles away) started production. Sad

My thoughts exactly Cornish! Big grin

My job is fantatsic. And I'm a liar Big grin

I work for a well known subsidiary of BA, based on the Isle of Man. My job entails producing scheduled maintenance chack packs for Dash 8 and Avro RJ100/BAe 146 aircraft in our fleet. Wildy exciting, working with aeroplanes and engineers with the added benefit of Willie Walsh giving us 2 years to get it right or else. Ah, the management here really know how to encourage and persuade maximum effort! Big grin

Have a nice day y'all

I'm the Production Planner for repairs. We manufacture electric and mechanical cooling fans ranging from 37mm to 1.5m in size. We also make specialized heaters and DC motors. The equipment has a huge number applications ranging from aircraft avionics (smallest) to train and battletank engines (largest). I enjoy the job, but the current bunch of people in my office are pretty obnoxious. We are due a move round soon, so hopefully things will get better.

I am a pediatric surgeon working at the University Hospital and clinics in Dresden. I perform surgery in children from birth (sometimes as small as 700g) up to 18 years old. We perform digestive surgery, malformations, fractures, tumors, thoracic surgery, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, cardiac surgery and urologic surgery. Right now I am working at the Newborn ICU in a rotation, and I love my job.

Apart from this, I also do research on the molecular basis of some pediatric diseases, sequencing target genes (like the RET protooncogene or NOS1) in patients and their families.

Sometimes I sleep. Not very often, though  Smile
