I am a social worker for the State. Live with a mountain of paperwork and try to assist approximatly 250 households. Many federal deadlines. Many of my clients expectations are not realistic and we make safe targets to take there frustrations out on. Lots of verbal abuse, on rare occasions physical incidents. Unfortunately very little real social work gets practiced. I will reach early retirement age in 5 years and probably switch to private practice. Flexible work schedule allows me to take computer breaks and make up the time, golf talk is a great stress reducer.

I'm the National Sales Director for a large provider of real estate information products to the mortgage lending industry.

the good - travel around the country and get the opportunity to play a decent amount.

the bad - normally working 7-7 Monday - Friday and the "honey do's" on the weekend don't allow for as much play time as I'd like...but that's life.

I'm a college student with just one more year left. I've played tennis my whole life but think once I'm done with college tennis I'll play golf full time.

I work as a Off Site Sales man on the boardwalk for Gold Key Resorts helping tourists at the beach with free stuff if they come preview our resorts.

Realized I never added to this part of the forum. I am a safety consultant for an insurance company. I work from my home (HQ on west coast) and cover ND, SD, MN, WI, UP MI, NE. I consult with our clients on their business risks and help out with establishing safety programs as well as regulatory compliance. Even working from home and traveling 30-40% of the time doesn't get me out as much as I would like (and those pesky CPCU tests are currently taking into my golf time as well).

Hi all! I'm in marketing communications primarily ... as well as anything else deemed to fall under the marketing/PR hat (or anywhere near it really).
