    Time for a bump...

    Loads of mangagers and Telecoms.

    Am a 24 yr old software engineer, programming in C, and Java. Only been in my first job for a year and a half.

    I help write software for a touch screen display on a machine, which the huge food and drinks industry buys. We have machines in all major factories all over europe. Nearly every food you guys eat most it would have passed through one of our machines. (walkers, master foods, kellogs, cadburys, etc).

    One of perks are free product samples ;)

    Looking to get charted one day.
    Anybody got tips on extra courses i can take up, part time that will help?

    I'm a partner in a precision Engineering Company, myself and a friend started it 6 years ago. It's bloody hard work and long hours, but hopefully it's starting to pay off now!

    Im an underwriter for a car finance company.
    I decided if people get the finance for their desired new cars or not.
    So depending on what your credit is like im either the good guy who gave you money for your new shiney autocar or the bad guy who told you to to go and try to get finance on a skateboard to travel around on.

    A thankless job....your are always upsetting somebody....the sales guys if you dont agree enough people for finance......the collections agents if you agree too many rubbish people for credit.

    I don't know if I should share this.......I'm a Police Sergeant.....
    11 years since University during which I have done stints on CID, Traffic and 5 years on a Tactical Team (Firearms and others sneakier stuff). Got promoted last year and now doing a stint in the dungeons. The only ray of sunshine is when I get to drive nice motors on Royal visits and the like. (Advanced and Counter-Terrorist trained). Have a day next month with Bentley at Crewe to get to grips with an Arnage. Can't bloody wait.

    If anyone needs any legal advice I'll be only too happy to help.

    P.S I am human, the hardest thing is trying to keep my licence now I have an S3 (265bhp)!!!!:busted_cop:

    My Missus used to work for the Police in the CAD room in Greenwich and some of the guys she worked with are now in close protection, I always wanted to be a copper but I think i'd not be able to deal with the fact my hands would be tied most of the time. the missus used to say that the other guys would get the public swearing and spitting at them and there was nothing they could do but ignore it, and the same faces turning up again and again after committing a string of crimes, don't think I could deal with that.

    I'd like to say it gets easier as the years go by........but it doesn't!! Today I had to stare in absolute disbelief as a car thief and general toe rag walked free from court after being given conditional bail by the Magistrates. I expected him to be sent down (he had admitted to stealing from 12 cars). When he left he asked me for an officer to drive him home. When I declined (politely of course) he then said he was going to steal a car to get home!! Some days I give up.............:keule:
