Trained as an English to Dutch translator, aspiring fiction writer, actually a software developer.

Sometimes confused.
Still here.

Finally got a job. It's only a month-long English teaching gig at a summer school, but at least for now I don't have to call myself unemployed for a few weeks. :)

Sorry to bring the thread back but was also interested in what other people did. I teach ESL here in sunny Dubai.

Some other posters have seriously cool jobs! Anyone want to trade? (laugh)

I'm also in the EFL game. Since my post above I have come [back] to Japan and had two jobs, first as an assistant language teacher in two junior high schools and then as a teacher in an eikaiwa (English conversation school) which is ironic considering I am a terrible conversationalist.

I like the job though. Get to meet lots of interesting folks, including a member of AKB48. Just yesterday I taught a woman who is one of the top judges on the international figure-skating scene. Although equally there are some excruciating, boring-as-hell housewifes and salaryman who have nothing to talk about other than how much 'nothing special' they do between lessons.

I'm in broadcasting.  My job title is  Master Control Operator.

On a good day, this means I watch TV for a living.

On a bad day, it means I try to figure out why the TV went off the air and fix it.
