LOL

My Job is Finding Work
Re: Can You Describe Your Job? by Sagamite(m): 6:55pm On Jul 10, 2008
I work as a Consulting advisor.

My work is challenging and interesting as I work with the executive team who I provide with reports and recommendations using all the consulting toolkits and methodology.

I do market analysis to find out where the business can grow, expand or invest to maximise profits, cut cost or improve revenue. It might involve analysing supply chain, customer service, acquisitions etc. Basically, every few months, I might be looking at a different area of the business and have to learn from scratch everything about that area and how it adds value to the business.

It involves data analysis, insight generation and structured thinking & writing.

It is also good as I work closely with the CEO and other senior heads of divisions who respect my opinion. And I get to see what challenges the business is facing in its markets and contribute to rallying or identifying resources to overcome it.

I currently work as a mechanical engineer on a one year internship programme in a pretty big company (fortune 500). I am mainly involved in the product development of new paper handling machines. I design test rigs which the company uses to conduct research on things like sensors, I conduct tests of my own on various other components, build prototype machines (which takes weeks at times) and occassionally I train other engineers on how to build the machines.

The job is certainly challenging, it has its ups and downs like most other jobs, ups being when you have a design solution to a problem and downs being when you don't . The pressure is crazy (especially when you have three managers in the room hustling you to finish an assignment so software can do their bit on the machine), the hours can be long and it takes a lot of innovation, imagination, hardwork and commonsense.

I am almost done with the internship however (it's been eleven months so far) and I'm looking forward to my final year of university. After that I might try my hands at investment banking (corporate finance) or go to work as an engineer for an oil service company.

Ultimately, my ideal job would be one where I successfully run my own business or businesses in Nigeria. I just think it would be best for me to try and gain a few years of experience here in the UK and maybe the US before going back to Nigeria to aquire the skills and swagger required to make it there.

I work in the music dept of a company. I dont particularly like the job although I do like music; I guess it'll be a lot of fun for someone who's actually interested in the music business. Its crazy, lol , cuz i have to go out everytime my phone rings cuz people hear loud music in the background and they're like "where are u" and I say the office! Idk it just seems silly
Re: Can You Describe Your Job? by JeSoul(f): 3:54pm On Jul 17, 2008
I'm a scientist. In the field of drug discovery & development and process sciences, specifically protein analytics. I've performed analysis that has supported the work of a nobel prize winner. I joke frequently that that is probably the closest I'll ever get to a nobel prize  wink

And I am also a part-time musician/artist/poet, I get to travel to a lot of different places and perform in front of very diverse and intresting crowds. Everything from churches to colleges to festivals to clubs. . . the only thing I dislike is being away from my loved ones & friends so much  sad  Any other real musicians on nairaland, holla@ your girl!

   But yes I do enjoy both careers smiley
