    Default Your occupation

    Hello all!

    I am starting this thread to understand more about each of our situation in terms of work and play.

    I wonder, what you guys are working as and do you all have time to take photos? I am searching for a job now, and I always thought I would love to work with interest. So, the question of what occupation Club Snapper holds struck me.

    Please use the format below to help me better understand working life in Singapore. Thanks.

    Occupation
    Unemployed

    Requirement for the job
    - Qualification (e.g Bachelor Degree in Commerce)
    - Experience (e.g 2 years)

    Why do you enjoy/dislike your job?

    How this job allows you to pursue your interest in photography?

    Cheers! Hope the info allows me to embark on a satisfying career!

    Occupation

    NSF (national service full time/army boy)

    Requirement for the job

    Easy to fulfill. Singaporean/permanent resident. min age 17.

    Why do you enjoy/dislike your job?

    I enjoy my job because i can do many things that cannot be experienced in civilian life. Can't disclose here. I can also learn about people relations before i actually join the work force.

    I dislike my job because i was conscripted (i want my pink IC!!). i'm bounded by many laws and its easy to get into trouble.

    How this job allows you to pursue your interest in photography?

    It does not. On the contrary, i can only use cameras unless i become the official unit photographer. I see many interesting things, yet i can't photograph. Makes me sad.

    I don't have a job.

    Requirement for the job
    Ability to hold a camera.

    Why do you enjoy/dislike your job?
    I enjoy the total freedom. But I am also limited by my own ablity, energy and resources. My lack of talent is more glaring now that I can't hide behind a day job.

    There is nothing for me to dislike about my job. I do not need motivation to pick up the camera every morning.

    How this job allows you to pursue your interest in photography?
    If I don't sleep, bathe and eat, I will have 24 hours a day to shoot.

    Satisfaction in YOUR career is determined by the level of satisfaction YOU get from YOURSELF and not seeing how others react to their careers.
