Sorry if this has been done before, but I am new to the board. What do y'all do during the day to support your other job? Seems like there are a ton of resourceful people around. Scientists, engineers, cooks? As for me I am a Mechanical Engineering grad student.

I'm a recruiter in the fashion industry, but that may change in the next few months...

IT Service Management.

Fancy way of saying I make sure we have automation in place to know what caused an outage and that we get notified about it.
Perfect end result should be fixing it before the users knows about it.

When things are going well I have time to surf here....when they aren't I become very busy very fast.

I'm part-owner in a wine club (technically, our ABC license is for a gourmet retail shop). It doesn't support my day job, though---quite the other way around. We're still trying to pay off the initial loan/LoC.

I know there is another related thread, but I'll put it here again.

Submarine Sonar Technician US NAVY (Think Jonesy from the Hunt for Red October, only nowhere near as cool as it looks)

Right now I am on shore duty, running simulators to train the fleet, teaching sonar classroom topic, and doing a whole bunch of paperwork. Just like being on a submarine, I still work in a windowless world.

So if that's your second job, what's your "day" job? :p

EDIT: maybe the OP was being a little too cryptic, but I might've misunderstood. I guess he was asking, what's our "second" job, brewing being the first.

In that case...I'm an architect.

I am a Lifeline Program Manager at our hospital, after being a respiratory therapist and EMT-S first. I work very part time hours now, like 8-10 per week.

I'm actually about a year from retirement, though, and am hoping to pursue some other part time things.

I test Jet Engines (industrial turbines) that are used to generate electricity and power US Coast Guard ships.

God I love whoring this pic...:D



I used to be the regional Network Engineer for a cable company, but they pimped me out like a cheap whore for too long...so I quit. Best paying job I ever had (wasn't worth the stress). ;)

I'm a medical editor for a medical education and communications company. I also own/operate a sideline beekeeping business, which is still in growth mode.

Public accounting - an auditor for one of the 'Big 4' to be exact... work on a variety of middle-market and SEC clients

Looks like we have a very well educated bunch here!

Then I should tell you we just put in a 10 million grant for a 900? Nah, guess not...;)

So, you mean they really can't disguise a caterpiller driver nuclear sub as a biological event, sonically speaking. Ahhh Man. Now I am bummed out. I thought that was a documentary.

OP, Building Code Examiner, and a Toddlers Dad. But the real work involves being a husband.

I manage the Outdoor Power department at a Do-It Best Hardware store. I get to sell Husqvarna chainsaws and garden tractors, plus I look up and order all the repair parts for custs and for the mechanics in the back.

Plus I homeschool my son in the mornings. I like the Dad part the best.

I'm a full time undergraduate student in Accouting, basically studying to do what RoaringBrewer and blacklab do.

I guess my third job would be part-time at the LHBS. It supports my brewing quite well...
