Well, my job is ok, I'm a bellman at a downtown hotel here in Calgary, one thing that makes the job better is that United Airlines is our biggest contract. So I get to meet a lot of pilots and f/a's.

As for my school, well my upgrading my math and english for uni is quite lame, however my flight school is awesome!!!!

Regards,

Transportation Consultant.
Come up with solutions for many urban transit railways as well as freeways, traffic signals etc.
Lot of traveling involved!

Times do change.
I used to like it but I am getting sick of it. I work around a bunch of uptight East-Coast Ivy League educated snobs! The work environment is too conservative and cutthroat!
I can't complain though. It's batter than not working at all. Thank God for the Non-Aviation forums. It is an outlet and I can always come here to speak with levelheaded intelligent people.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I am the Content Coordinator for Distance Learning and I work for a school in Chicago. The school I work for is a Graduate school in Child Development called Erikson Institute. I am responsible for putting together different on-line programs for Erikson so that students from anywhere in the world are able to take classes at our school. So I guess I work in computers since some of what I do involves technical work.

The job is good, I really enjoy it but it can get boring at times. Coming up with new ideas to improve the status quo is always fun but other than that it's just your normal 9-5 gig. Anyway, here's the URL in case your interested http://www.erikson.edu

I also maintain an e-commerce site and I used to be in the social services field working with kids (which was very stressful) after I graduated from college. But I'm going for my Masters degree now (Business) so that takes my mind off work as well.

I have an accounting job which is okay. It doesn't suck, my coworkers and boss are nice, so it's acceptable. I've had worse. I go to court reporting school, and have been for a while, and it's a maddening process. I love my flying lessons. Hopefully one day all of this will pay off.

I love my school, Ryerson University...espescially because of the program I'm in (ITM). There are only about 100 people in my year (4th year), and we're really tight. I feel pretty apprehensive about graduating actually...

if you don't like your job, get another one. If you don't like your school, tough it out.

I like my job, I feel 'lucky' that I have a job!! I wanted to be a flight attendent when I was younger, but my Mum talked me out of it. Looking back that was probably a good thing. I would like to find out more about being a flight dispatcher, that would be interesting I think, hard work though? .. not that I mind hard work!! I do see job security as being more important than want you want to do though, that's the way it is these days..

The school I finished last year was terrible and hardly bearable.
This year things should (hopefully) change.

I work as a headhunter in the city of London. The money is very good and you get to travel a lot, but unfortunately the hours are extremely long (typically 6.30 am to around 7 pm). Also, the general public have only marginally less distrust for people working in my impression than they have for Osama Bin Laden!  Smile
