Team Leader at Southern Co-op. >.> I absolutely HATE it! As most of my mates will know as I always end up phoning them and complaining how much I dislike working there. Seriously, the Co-op must be one of the most badly-run businesses out there! >.<

*lesigh*

Thankfully I only have to survive a year of it more while I'm at uni, then I'm moving away to try and get a proper job doing something I may remotely enjoy

I'm a student in my last year of school, five days a week, trying to get into uni.

And on the weekends I'm a hitman.

... I mean, sales assistant. Yeah.

oo interesting topic!
I work part-time at an animation studio and model in cosplay for life drawing classes :3


That sounds really cool. It would be interesting to be a cosplay model for budding artists. Although I can see that most of them would cry if I appeared in my Abel Nightroad.

Back to me. (when theres work) Actress and seamtress.

Very diverse career paths here!

I'm a 'Sandwich Artist' (yes, that's the official title) at Subway. I don't just make sandwiches. I wash up, prepare the meat/veg, clean the customer area, bake breads, bake cookies, clean backroom, take money at till. Basically, everything o_O

I'm a full-time lazy student! Except I don't think lazy is really true, as I spend my time reading critical essays on Renaissance drama for fun. But my last job was as a finance assistant at a law firm!

I do a bit of modelling, too, although it's very sporadic and not something I'd really think of making a full time career out of!

Holy cow! And here I thought I was a weirdo for being a cosplayer that works in the financial industry! XD

I work part-time as an "operational analyst" (though I like to call myself the permanent intern) at a private wealth management firm and also studying for the CFA qualification...

Woot! I love Subway. I can easierly make my way through a book of vouchers when ever I get when. Occasionally have a sub in cosplay as well whenever the Manchester cosplay meets are on. Just imagine Sephiroth with the Chicken and Bacon Ranch.

From what pics of you I have seen I think you would make a perfect model. If I can get modeling work and I'm tiny I'm sure you could and your far prettier than me.

I work as a paper engineer for a UK based, quite well known greetings card and character licensing company.
Basically it means I'm employed as their popup card/book boffin and anything they need made fom cardboard, foamboard or paper.
This may sound great as a job for a crafty cosplayer, but proves to be a double edged sword as crafting all day at work makes costume making a difficult escapism.

Heh, I know the feeling. It's cool to be able to say that your job basically involves watching anime and writing about it, but in the last few years I've mostly watched new DVD releases. The amount of fansubbed anime I watch now is almost none - too much time and effort.

I read for a living. Seriously, my job title is "Reader".

I work for a press cuttings company (that's been around since the 1880s!). What it entails basically boils down to companies wanting to know when they or certain keywords they're interested in appear in magazines, papers and on the web, and whether the comment is positive or negative. My job is to find these mentions and work out if they fit the brief we're given.

Given that I read at near enough the speed of light, it's a great job for me!


15 Mar 2009 - 20:2111765
I wish I could say I had a magnificent job

Im only 14 and most places in my town say you have to be at least 15/16 to get a part time job.

ANYWAYS Instead of moaning I will get back to the post. What do I do to fund my costumes???
I dont have a permenant job, usually I help out with the elderly on Saturdays. Sounds really sad I know but it pays quite good.

Chicken and Bacon Ranches are one of the easiest sanwiches to make. They're really popular, along with the BMT.

My favourites are the Subway Club (not toasted tastes fresher) and the Steak and Cheese.

Ironic, I've worked at Subway for nearly a year and still am not sick of the sanwiches!

My gosh, its really amusing to have an insight into what boring jobs we all do xD
Well, currently I'm only part-time sales assistant and full-time starving student
And I work in a newsagent..Its a good place though, can't complain. they let me take all the cardboard and older stock home without questions XD We also sell all manners of useful stuffs for cosplay, so I do enjoy spending my days rearranging stuff and planning what to use...
Also, munching the chocolates, sweets and crisps isn't too bad of a work environment XD I'll be sad to leave when I move.
Also. Used to work at Diggerland. In case you don't know what that is...a theme park with Diggers instead of Rides. no joke. I know how to drive a tractor and a tank 8DDD
but my lungs won't ever forget Red Diesel.

But I might be ditching the proper job to go to Uni this year. Why? Because I want to learn stuff and do something different.

LOL how uncanny, I'm almost identical. X3 Up untill a couple of months ago I worked in a preschool, I'm currently the deputy of an ASC, and hopefully soon I'll also be working in a primary school as a Teaching Assistant.
Do you keep your cosplay tendancies private? Personally, knowing how alarmist the world seems to be nowadays, I'm not sure that it would be recieved well. =/ Hmm.
