    Infidel approached me asking to make this thread because he thinks (and I agree) it'd be pretty cool to see in what fields the members of DLP work/would like to work.

    So I've set up a survey here.

    I'll make some pretty graphs and stuff once responses die down.

    It makes threatening possible suitors a lot easier when you've got a teenage daughter as well.

    I'd say so. I tried to include as many careers in as few options as possible, but it's pretty hard. D:

    Put in engineering. Be pretty interesting to see what everybody does to pay the bills. I know Pers does everything, but he's the only one I know of.

    Same issue here, that or something involving linguistic application in some manner that isn't specifically academia.

    Multi-tasking on jobs at the moment but I suppose my end goal is media related. This will be interesting to see the end of, specially considering how many DLPers seem to have either vast interests in politics or sciences.

    My job is a strange combination of engineering and computers. I put engineering up though.

    Are you thinking about the foreign service? (Just curious because that's my longterm goal).

    Oz: your poll is missing government. And private sector roles (like finance, consulting, HR, accounting, back office, etc.)

    Added some options to the poll. If you feel there's something that fits you better just take it again and I'll use the newest result.
