I have my first stable job in 6 months..and it's a 3rd shift security guard. The pay sucks, it's lonely and it is boring...but it pays the bills.

I'm a part-time Coffee Bean (like Starbucks, just smaller and less evil ) barista, part-time graphic design student, and part-time web developer/designer.

In about a year I'm hoping to be a full-time student by day and a bartender by night, and then we'll see.

I'm a lab tech for a company that speciallizes in increasing the yield of semiconductor device manufacturers. I've been working in this lab since 1979. Since that time, the lab has been owned by 5 companies. First Burroughs, then Burroughs and Sperry Corp merged to form Unisys. Then Unisys sold its design division to Cadence Design Systems. For a short time, Cadence attempted to spin off the design services group to Tality Corp., but that was in the summer of 2000, and market conditions were poor at the time. Eventually, Cadence sold the lab and 15 or so engineers associated with it to PDF Solutions in 2001.

I make characterization measurements on transistors, diodes, capacitors, resistors, etc, on wafers and write software to control the measuring instruments so that the measurements can be taken in an automated fashion, even over night and on weekends.

PDF's clients are almost every major semiconductor manufacturer in the world except Intel and AMD. Those companies are highly paranoid about a third party seeing any of their manufacturing processes. PDF trades on the Nasdaq exchange under symbol PDFS.

My gross pay is about $70K per year, but $20K goes out in alimony payments, so my real take home is quite a bit less.

If I had been able to go to a 4 year college instead of JC, I'd be making over $100K per year, but, at the time, there were other priorities.

I work for Delta Faucet and I'm a part time student.

I'm an operator of one the worlds largest, most advanced electroplates. I can currently run 9 different finishes at once. I've reached the ceiling at the factory. I'm hoping to finish up my degree within about a year and look for something new. There is a new automotive factory coming to town. It's been a lifetime dream to make cars, too bad it's a Honda factory. So who knows where I'll end up.
