    What do you work as?

    I'm a student studying sports science, however I work as a business management consultant...did this for my placement year and now have a full time job with them while studying in final year.

    I'm thinking of doing a masters in Economics if I can and then I wouldn't mind getting into finance...either way - the job I have at the minute has promised all this great pay etc (considering the last year I have put in 70-80 hour weeks no joke and received less than minimum wage because I'm a student...)... they have also said when I finish uni I will work in a position of responsibility and then become partner .. they want me to run the marketing arm of the business cos my boss believes that's where my strengths lie (I'm a bit of an all0rounder - smart cookie lol).... the boss (owner and founder) has done extremely well for himself - building the company up from scratch... I dunno though if it's where I wanna be - love the people and the job, but the job security aspect is not great (all these promises but struggle to pay bills because they have invested FAR too much in the company this last year...

    Anyway - went off on a wee tangent there ... basically I'm a student who works in a good job but am still deciding what I want to do ....

    What about you lot? What you're jobs? You all must live comfortably to afford all these new apple tosy ;):apple::D
