Let's hear about what you do in your current employment, and do you enjoy your work?

If you are not employed, then tell us what you are looking for, or what you would like to do, maybe you are studying to achieve your goal, or maybe you have retired.

Currently retired, but after nearly 6 years, and not travelling the country any more, I am looking for something part time or casual. To this end I completed a Certificate III in Pathology, which entitles me to be a Phlebotomist, or the person who draws blood samples and received other samples at your local doctor surgery or pathology lab. Haven't had any luck but am still applying for work in this field, and my lifelong field of Administration, accounts, payroll type work.

I was forced to retire early, but was fortunate that I had done a lot of things prior to going into electronics in commercial radio. Arc and oxy welding, mechanical repairs and maintenance on cars, trucks, forklifts, bulldozers, chainsaws even saw filing and manufacturing of air conditioning ducts, as well as spending time with the old PMG for a couple of years, now Telstra. I even had my own country music band for five years just recently, and that was a buzz and lots of fun.

The best job of all though was when I qualified in commercial radio engineering, as my whole life changed from the dreaded day to day drag from the above mentioned work I did. I never became bored with radio and the team spirit at the station was great. I learned a lot about people, and my confidence improved dramatically, reflected by other staff members, which had a snow ball effect on everyone.

I have been out of it for a fair while now, and that's probably for the better as the industry has changed dramatically over the years, not for the better in my opinion, however, it gave me a sense of achievement and some very good memories and a long time friendship with my ex colleague KM.

This forum is my latest challenge now, and I do enjoy it, and love working on it and communicating with our members. :-D

Great to have you too, mate! (and thanks for starting it up again).
