I work for the UMWA (United Mine Workers of America) as in-house IT Support. I make sure people are working so miners get their proper benefits.
Any Dwarfs?

They dug too deep.

I don't think "Losing Is Fun!" would go over well as your company slogan.

I got a degree in Aeronautical Engineering--right now I'm a pilot for the US Air Force.  The AE degree was just ahead of a music degree, for those of you who have seen my thread with Mr. Gong.

I feel like this is a safe place.  Guys...
I currently work for Muse.

By the way loving this thread.  We have some people with some awesome jobs and careers here.  Profession polar bear deterrent, that sounds like something I want to see on a resume.

I'd totally trade you jobs :3 Next resume I send out I'll write Polar Bear Deterrent and not Guide Safety Technician. Most of the time when I post Guide Safety Technician, they do a double take and ask me what. I then tell them and they get so into that they forget about the interview. It's pretty funny.

I fly KC-135s.  They're the workhorse and whipping boy of the Pacific.  We used to have engineers on board, but not anymore.

Things are political in the US, but I guess we just don't do 'delicate'.

I recently graduated with a degree in medieval history. Now I work in IT as a systems support analyst for a library consortium... not sure how I ended up in that career but it happened and that's that.  8)
