What Do You Do for a Living?


Recommended Posts

I’m an oil field operator for a major oil and gas company. It’s hot. It’s hard work but when I have down time I get to pull out the clubs and hit as many balls as I can afford.

I am retired!!   My last job was as President and CEO of Omega Performance.  An international training company that focused on the technical training of commercial lenders, as well as training government agencies that audit commercial loans. 

Prior to that I was a senior executive (VP) with AchieveGlobal, at that time among the world's largest training companies with offices throughout the world.  We specialized in training in the areas of leadership, customer service and sales.  One neat thing we did was do the training for all the volunteers for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.

I have always been in the training and development space since I finished graduate school in 1973.

So now I play golf and do whatever is on the "honey do" list.  :-)

I am recently retired, March, 2019, as a police sergeant. During my career I worked patrol, narcotics and lost my mind when I took a couple promotions. Just recently started playing golf again after a long hiatus and hope to be able to devote quite a bit of time to become much better.

I was a furniture designer and importer for quite a number of years. I retired from that and wasn't happy with retirement, so I applied for and got the job as the Youth Director at my synagogue. I did that for 9 years and was then promoted to Executive Director. I held that position for another 6 years before our synagogue merged with another one. We moved to their building and their management team took over, forcing me into retirement again. I worked part time for 4 years running the proshop at a local golf course and left there about 3 years ago.

I'm now employed full time by 2 while fluffy doggies who make me accede to their every whim.

I was a sales manager for a large beverage company.  Getting layed off next month along with our whole division across the country.

18 years gone.

So sorryto hear about this. There's way too much of this sort of thing going on that gets overlooked in the news of the current economy. I hope you find something enjoyable and satisfying to do into the future.

Still teaching 8th Grade Social Studies... but now I get to do it in my underwear!  We have been teaching through Digital Learning Days since mid March.  My last day in the classroom was March 12th, and we are not going back into the classroom this school year.

    • Ha. He has always seemed as a doofus, and every now and then he confirms the suspicions with stuff like this.
    • Great post here even if it is from 2015! So I guess I would revise my consistency goal to something like "improve my poor shots and reduce the dispersion in shot results, in both distance and direction".
    • +2 on a quick 9 today. Pretty easy course although no roll in the PNW off season. Used only 4 clubs for a fast getaway from the house and a bit of a challenge. Rangefinder would have been useful.
    • As the calendar year draws to a close thank you all for putting up with me, and allowing me into your insights. The golf posting season is now ended but play continues on for my second winter (it is awesome!). This year has been good for me although I still have things I would like to correct. I am in awe of all of you that work diligently on your swings. If I ever find an instructor like my first, and find enough time to add practice I will join you in that quest. For now I love to play too much. Advance Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!
    • After watching Tin Cup again and learning that Freddie Fender was part of the "super group" that is the Texas Tornados. Only heard of Freddie though, is that super?
