What is YOUR day job?

posted on 16th of september, 2008

There was a recent thread about how many contributors are connected to DT. The result can be found here Community Stats and wow what an eye opener.

Not only are there a lot of contributors but at this writing, 5:15 a.m. Eastern standard time, there are over 5000 folks on line. Me included! That certainly says a lot for Dreamstime and its global appeal. I do not want to think everyone is up so early on the same side of the planet.

With over 45,000 contributors I began to think… what does everyone REALLY do? Certainly there are the full time contributors making a living with their photography. I applaud them!! I do wonder what percentage is doing so. Hmmmm….. food for thought.

OK now the question. What do the rest of us do to bring home the bacon? How do you earn your keep? What is your day job?

Are you a doctor?............A lawyer?..................A Chef?
Do you work outside or behind a desk? Are your customers animals ?

I am in the IT industry. Yes it gives me a real headache sometimes. ID 10 T errors all day long. But it does pay the bills!

What about you? How do YOU make a living?

I love this thread - the day jobs are all so diverse! I'm a lawyer (employment), currently on sabbatical and, rather than return to work in central London, I want to move to America. Anyone out there willing to sponsor me?
