Work in the aviation industry in the South of The Netherlands. Can be fun, boring and hectic.

Great thread...

I'm a Custom Install Consultant/Engineer. Basically I design and program automation/control systems for the anonymous rich in their homes.

We integrate multi-room AV, lighting, heating, air-con, security and just about any other mechanical or electrical/electronic device or building service. Put the controls for it all onto wireless or wall mounted touch-screens and web-interfaces etc. Typical installation runs from 10k for basic multi-room audio up to ri-god-damn-diculous money (think 400k+) for a fully integrated 30 zone audio/video distribution system with heating, lighting, blinds & curtains, air-con, security, cctv, fire alarm, irrigation control, telephony & IT and access control systems (think biometric door entry etc).

If any one wants a top notch home cinema, some lighting controls or some multi-room audio or any of the other services I've mentioned hit me up

Great job overall, has it's good and bad days as all jobs do

I am a learning mentor in an inner city secondary school. I basically teach the kids that are a nightmare to deal with for the subject teacher. It's not the easiest job and can be very stressful but it pays the bills and is alot less dangerous than my previous jobs.

JJ - I think most B2C stuff if quiet. We are almost exclusivlely B2B and mainly deal with public sector clients (and one private one who is booming thanks to digital switchover!) - they seem nearly oblivious to the recession. In fact I had to stop getting discounts on ads for a client because they HAD to spend their ad budget in three weeks. Slightly galling for most people.
