Default Our Jobs

Hey guys,

i'm not sure about our average age on this forum any more but i was just interested to see what everyone is doing with their working life at the minute :? could be interesting and who knows if in the same country and area could lead to reccomendations for jobs?

Let me start off.

I'm a System Administrator for Carillion for a system called Concept which is owend by FSI. Concept is like alot of programs in the sense it is just a front end interface for a database. The database contains a good couple of hundred tables from building information, asset information and fault information. My basic role started as making new accounts to use the program, editing the data for the program via the front interface and fixing anyones issues that they had.
Now i have developed my roled to involve alot of database administration. Using Microsoft Access and more recently just plain hand written SQL queries, views and stored procedures.

CST at Fujitsu Services, doing an ongoing contract supporting KFC stores with their tills and stuff. Not the best job in the world, but for a 17-YO like me, 6.75 an hour full time with regular opportunities for overtime is hella good money.
