It would have been great to have parents, but it made BMX so much more hardcore and real not being able to buy anything new, ever.

I have a bachelors in furniture design, currently studying architecture and working in a bike shop (mechanic). Architecture is what I'll probably end up doing, but it'll take a few more years.


Good luck man, how many years of study do you have remaining?

I'm an architect.

I should get my bachelor's this year, and two more for a masters. So at least three. I actually would have gotten a job in a very prestigious firm this summer, but it was very last minute and I had already signed a contract in the bikeshop. I'm hoping to land a part time job this year, work experience seems to be much more important than school credits when it comes to finding a job after graduating.

Is it standard to sign a contract to work at a bike shop over there? I suppose the difference in shops is significant, still seems like a bit much for a bike shop.

Could be for temporary work. I know that some places here will hire someone on with a contract, that way the company can say "you're employed for this length of time, you get no benefits, we can fire you at any time, you will only make this much, etc."

That way, the company can hire you for as long as they need and once that contract is up, they don't need to pay you 2 weeks wage, or severance or whatever.

I'm a partner in a consulting firm. We deal with a couple of investment banks and private equity funds advising on financial risk management, and I specialize in delta one quant/algo trading of equity derivatives.

We've been trying to expand for headcount in high frequency trading, but all the good talent keep being sniped by the big investment banks/ other funds in the market. The fact that nobody has yet tried to poach me for the last two years probably means i'm not as good in the job as i see myself...

I am a RN/ Certified Wound Specialist working in homecare currently. I go to folks homes and evaluate their wounds, come up with treatment plans and get the MDs to sign off on them. Pretty interesting job aside from the paperwork.

Basically you have to have some kind of contract to do any work over here. It's a good thing as it's mostly to protect the employee.

The only thing that matters to me about bmx anymore is just being able to ride the damn thing. Doesn't matter if I'm not learning tricks. As long as I'm riding, hanging with friends or alone, There is a smile on my face.

I'm a millwright at a large integrated steel plant. Although I only work in one area the machinery I maintain on a daily basis is fascinating.

One size fits all PR/advertising/marketing account director at a large comms consultancy. Being 'creative', we have an entirely free bar in the office and all of the open plan, table tennis, hammock type of feel-good shit going on, which is alright.

My girlfriend is a surgeon in training and fuck me does it make me have days thinking 'what do I actually do' or visions of leaving the firm to go and chop trees down or build something, it is comical how different our respective 'bad day at work' stories are.
