studying mechanical engineering at University of South Carolina. Finishing up my last day of an internship as a programs manager with GE Aviation up in Baltimore, MD. The plant manufactures Thrust Reversers for several types of jet airplanes. I manage an in house bonding process making carbon fiber parts. Going back for my third year of school this fall, aiming to get an internship position at GE Aviation Jet Engine Plant in Wilmington NC and hoping to live on Wrightsville. Stoked because I've never lived on the beach before. Awesome part about GE is they give a $600/month housing stipend as an intern on top of their very high pay :D
hoping to stay with the GE after graduation and work my way up so I can choose where I work. GE has locations in 150 countries throughout the world so hopefully i get to do some traveling!
i am a college professor and part-time musician (paid gig 3-5 times month), and since i teach some distance ed (blackboard...sigh) i have more flexible time, especially fridays and during winter (dec-feb) and summer (late jun-late aug) for travel and general beach access. i have taught classes from ecuador, england, costa rica and hawaii, along with several continental states.Quote:
Currently I work for a company that does for-profit online higher education. I take care of their learning management system (Blackboard) and it's related systems. I like the job: pay is great, benefits too. Most of the systems I work with are Linux, which I prefer to deal with over Windows.
in winter on a weekday with a partner to sit in for HOV lane, i can get to beach in 50 minutes... in summer (esp weekend, which i rarely do) or alone it is 2 hours each way. (work is 17 minutes, as i don't go in until 11 am and l miss traffic).Quote:
The drive (2 hours, one way)... is killing me but I'm hoping my one-day-a-week work-from-home situation increases to be two or three days. I'm only an hour and 15 from the beach and would love to be closer.
I am actually a sushi chef, i trained all last summer and thats what I have been doing this summer
School for Nursing. 3X12 days on, 4 days to surf! Plus high demand in cool areas such as VA/SC, HI, or (fingers crossed) Australia. No one here happens to know if Drexel has a surf club/team like Maryland?
i work at greenlight surf supply, couldn't as for a better career opportunity
Store Manager for Eastern Mountain Sports. Not a bad gig.
