    I teach 6th grade math. Don't make a lot of money, but allows me to spend a lot of time with family and the outdoors.

    I have always done hunting retail/bow tech work (couple of local archery shops, Dicks Sporting Goods and Bass Pro Shops). I am one of the few that really liked the retail world. I loved the numbers behind it and the people. However, even though I have quite a bit of experience, my age (25) has kept me from progressing to the point of actually making a living. I may return to it sometime.

    Now, I'm a City Carrier Assistant for USPS. Great pay, union job and excellent benefits once you become regular. It was pretty foreign to me at first but I enjoy it. Once I make regular I'll be in really good shape and it's probably one of those jobs you can leave because of the benefits and pretty good pay. Once you make regular, it takes 12-12.5 years to top out your pay ($30ish per hour) which for here is a very good living. However first class mail is dying but packages are the future of USPS. They're updating their tracking features as well as other things to help compete with FedEx and UPS

    Occupational Therapist in homecare. If you have no idea what that is, just think of a physical therapist for your arms and that is close enough!!

    I am a Professional Engineer. Cut my teeth doing large air pollution control projects in foundries and steel mills all over the USA and Mexico for 12 years. I spent a couple years in site and utilities construction as well. Then I co-owned an engineering/fabrication/construction company for 10 years. Last year I sold my company to my former business partner.

    For the past 10 months I have been the Professional Engineer for a local mechanical contractor. We are also the largest GC for indoor recirculating water fish farms in the USA. I never thought I would like working for someone else again, but it honestly is a dream job. Private plane to travel in, no set work day hours, unlimited personal and vacation time (just get my work done), and everyone there hunts so a lot in common with everyone.

    I'm a night owl, hiding in the trees and looking to pounce on the wicked so the good citizens can sleep well at night.
