    What do you do for a living?

    Ill post a poll for this topic in a moment. Basically pick an option that most closely matches what you do, and then reply to this post with the specifics of what you do. I think it will be interesting to see all the different professions people have that play this game. It will show diversity im thinking.

    I am a finance graduate and currently work in supply chain management for a property management firm.

    Archaeologist, or at least trying to be. It's hard getting into digs and actually getting paid.

    I work, via a temp agency, as a Software Test Engineer at Microsoft. I've spent the last 9 years in QA both within the Microsoft Games Test Organization and at ArenaNet. Basically, they make the game... and I make it better.

    I take it you live in Washington? Are you one of the game testers at that facility? I had a few friends in an old guild that worked there.

    I work for a small firm that provides tax advice and services to expats working in mainland Europe. Mostly customer service, though I do also help out with their marketing material. Office based, white collar I suppose.

    I work part time at the auto-parts store my husband manages. I help out with some of the office work as well as setting up displays and doing in store inventory. I work between 2 and 3 days a week and also help with their quarterly returns. Aside from that I am a house wife and take care of all the cleaning and cooking. I am trying to become a writer though in my spare time, and spend time after work writing as well as time when I am not doing anything else at home.

    I'm a compositor at a post production company...basically I take all the cool visual effects you see (and most of the time don't see) in movies/tv and put them together to look photorealistic.
