OK, my ´job´ is small business owner I guess, I own a landscaping business, and this is my third year at it. Great job security too, cause I´m never gonna lay myself off, LOL! I may lose a customer or two but I´m in a really good area, and I have no doubts about always being able to earn a living.
Really sucks to be unemployed. My brother´s a systems analyst, and he was ´downsized´ at his last company. Happily he found another job after a month or so.
Good luck with your job-hunting!

I created my position. It´s a sort of bridge between InfoSystems and our Pricing department. I work for a major ltl trucking company. Get to interface between the pricing people and I/S to automate the rating of freight bills. Great job too. We´re almost at 90% automation which of course means that there´s less need for manual rate clerks (i.e. downsize). I also prepare the annual general rate increase information which all carriers do each year. I would describe my job as extremely secure!

Yeah, I´m only 20 with only 4 months of computer networking college under my belt, I work for my dad who owns a business. We do phone systems for commercial and industrial. We also sell cell phones and (for now) pagers from the office. I work 9-5 5 days a week. I´ve been working here for slightly less than a year, in fact the 28th will be my 1 year mark. I get vacation time this year, so I´ve decided to go to Florida over spring break and take my friend who´s still in high school.
It´s nice working here, especially when we get overtime to install big systems in places that you can´t shut off their phone service until after 5
It´s pretty good job security...other businesses our size aren´t doing as well as we are at this time of the year, which is usually the slowest for us.

I work at Pro Golf Discount as the assistant warehouse manager. I am one of the few that don´t actually play golf. There´s 6 stores here in WA and 4 down in CA, so some of you guys might be familiar with it. I am satisfied with this job, although I know I could get a better one, I am just too lazy.

Ahhh.. Well, currently I´m employed at Sear´s AutoCenter working a whopping 0 hours a week. I got laid like what 3 weeks before Xmas...I´m sure you guys know how that feels.

But, the last real job I had I was working as a Unix Op with Applications Support in the Unix Admin Team. I was working for Choice Pointe Inc at their CDB InfoTek Office in Santa Ana Ca.

I have 4yrs into my Comp Sci degree at Embry Riddle Aeronautical Univ. I really have no clue what I want to do...just be able to afford everything I guess.

Worst job I´ve had....for 8 years I shoveled horse manure for 6 hours a day in what ever weather hit. And for 6 hours of work I made 20 bucks. ....to top it off my parents 1099´d me for taxes when I was 14, and they claimed me as a dependant, so I had to pay the taxes !

Ever since then...I´ve pretty much hated my parents.
