What is your occupation?

Postby Knica Eas » Sat Sep 26, 2020 8:37 am

Curious about NS player demographics.

For the purpose of this poll, an 'occupation' is an activity that brings income. So if you are a politics student, you would choose 'student', not 'politics'. If you work as a barista by daylight and sell artwork by moonlight, and your average income from making coffee significantly outweighs your income from making paintings, you would choose 'restauration', not 'arts'. If you earn equal amounts from multiple activities, choose the one that you feel best represents you.

Clarification on 'health care':
This includes anything covered by public health care (or would reasonably be covered by public health care if available, for those without access to such a system), so would not include things like 'guru Patrick's hot yoga relaxation with herbal assistance'. The exact scope depends on your own social context; for example, traditional Chinese medicine would fall under 'health care' in China and 'general private sector' in the United States.

Clarification on 'civil service':
This includes career politicians, administrative staff within government agencies, as well as frontline service workers, such as firefighters and social workers.

Clarification on 'non-private forces':
This includes the military, the police, or any other non-private organisations authorised and expected to use violence in some form during regular duty. Private security falls under 'general private sector'.

It's one of those jobs where the good really does make up for the bad. Though the bad does include wild animals and lots of mud.

I used to work for Macy's at a call center for a few years, right now I'm just a house husband. I moved to Germany a few years ago and focused first on becoming proficient in German, then I started looking for a job last year but then corona happened and it got a lot harder. I took a break from the job search but I plan on getting back at it soon. We have enough money but it would be nice to have more.

I know a coworker who had got bit by an alligator and had to hid in a tree and I once had to walk three miles in mud sometimes going above my knees when a truck broke down. Those downsides are real downsides.

Shitposting on numerous forums and defending Russia & now, according to some, China. I sincerely if the word "and" is offended by me using the "&" symbol instead.

Joking aside, Corporate Management, Finance, Banking, International Trades - it's where the money's at. I want to travel the World and then raise a family, and I need to be able to afford that.
What's more offensive to you: teacher being beheaded for free speech or rich guy not paying taxes? Oh yeah, rich guy's name's Trump - still think you don't have TDS?
Come, learn about Russian Culture! Bring Vodka and Ushanka. Interested in Slavic Culture? Fill this out.
If we tell the radical Republicans that there's proof that Global Warming doesn't exist in Death Valley, and the radical Democrats that there's proof of Russian Collusion there, would we have a better America?
