No wonder they fired you, you wouldn't believe what was stuck to the rim of the pan,
and another thing all the porn mags were well out of date,
astranauts need fresh material if they are going to keep all their body parts functioning.
I love your old job!

The best job ever is mine. I am a Marine, so I get paid to shoot guns and blow shit up. Also, I'm the CommO, so my other job is to make sure the internet connections (and radios and phones) are working. So I'm "working" right now, doing QA tests on our connection, making sure it works.

On the other hand, the location kinda sucks....

Right now I'm a Pathmark Deli Whore, working for $7.25/hr. It's billions of times better than my previous job of being a Blockbuster Bitch.

I'd like to be a lab technician at my local university (OIT - Office of Information Technology) for a few reasons:

1) I'm a Computer Science major and any work with computers is excellent for my resume.
2) $9.16/hr, 20 hr weeks, with a potential to earn up to $15/hr.
3) I would actually be able to afford my own tuition payments.
4) Did I mention the money? For a part-time job for a college student, it's pretty damn good.

Also, the job is a joke. You literally sit on your ass for 5-8 hours a day (there's a reason it's nicknamed "lab sitting"), occasionally helping a user out with problems. I've logged (thus far) over 200 hours in the labs, and I've yet to see a tech actually do hard work.

Hard work. There's some work involved, such as helping users login, using word, printing, etc ... (which is just your basic customer service, of which I have a ton of experience with); but, there's no difficult work. You don't diagnose problems. You don't fix machines. And, no programming is involved.

(My defenition of hard work: debugging a 40,000 line program - written in one file - that's all spaghetti logic)

You also get administrative access over the local network, and are allowed to do whatever on the machine (homework, etc ...), as long as the lab doesn't get out of control.

The only reason I don't have the job right now is because I'm a fucking retard and signed up for all day classes, leaving very little wiggle room. OIT is closed on the weekends (of which I had no classes during), and they need people during the daytime (which is exactly the time I am in class). Oh, yes, I shall learn from my mistakes!

(Experience isn't an issue here. I have experience. Much more than your average college student. In fact, the only reason I'm in college is so I can get a degree, and move on to a Masters and PhD. Otherwise I could happily accept a full-time position for $12/hr but, I actually want to advance in life, provide for a family, and generally stop being such a leech)

I'm finishing media college and at the moment do odd commissions of cartoons and charicatures for money. But I'd love to actually get into a company that makes animated shows or games and do some animating or concept design for them.

I'm a student and I work at the equipment lab for the Cinema department.

My dream job would probably be Rooster Teeth (yeah, i'm that guy), but realistically, I'd love to work for Fox Searchlight. They make good movies. Honestly, I just want to be involved in entertainment in some fashion.
