You bet I work, full time. Gotta provide for my family, you know what I'm sayin! Definately a lot harder with a wife, 1 kid and another due any day, but you do what you gotta do.

When I was an undergrad I owned a lawn service and had 3 employees. When I went for my masters, I subcontracted all my contracts ( 85 ) and worked as a manger in Citibank in the collections dept...so much fun :D

Ahhh...only 24 and all I did in life is work. I need to get out and play!!!

50+ hours a week working for a hospital in pharmacy information systems. Basically a pharmacy technician with an administrative role. Support on the new pharmacy system install (McKesson Horizon Meds Manager), interface testing and maintenance, Drug distribution system (Pyxis) system administrator, running reports, financial analysis of drug use, C II-V narcotic discrepancy reports, etc.. Its fun and I'm learning a ton about clinical informatics, drug and allergy interactions, etc.. but its not what I want to do with the rest of my life. It pays the bills for now though, while I finish up my pre-dent requirements.

Shout out to all those other SDNers working hard to achieve their dental dreams!

Currently, working about 30 hours a week as dental assistant, I began by shadowing --> Interning --> Working. I also on monday's about 2 hours tutor/mentor middle school kids who are educationally a step behind. On Friday's I volunteer about 8 hours in a family transition center that helps find and then setup low income housing (from apartment -- toiletries) for people in transition.
So, all in all I contribute about 40 hours a week to work/volunteer and take classes (Physics and Anatomy) and study for the DAT, so to take it in May.

Those are my hours.

I am a technical support engineer for software testing tools at a very large software company. I'm also 27, and I haven't always desired to work in health care, so I guess you could say I'm getting a late start in all of this. This job has helped me to develop good diagnostic and troubleshooting skills, which I think will be helpful for me in the future.

Any other IT folks out there?
