    OK time to learn more about us here at the Cantina....we've got a thread on cars, a thread on hobbies, a thread on where we live. How about one on where we work/what we do....with a twist.

    Please tell us, first, what you do for a living/where you work (if you work).....and second, please tell us what you would be doing for a living/where you would be working, in the SW Universe.

    I will start us off....I work in logistics in the US Department of Defense. I am a manager in the supply chain working for the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency....we buy, ship, stock, store, and issue parts to a U.S. Depot maintenance operation, that performs heavy maintenance on B-1, B-52, KC-135 and E-3 aircraft and engines. Hence my love for the Yavin-4 sequence in ANH....love watching those rebel maintainers get those X and Y wings ready (yeah I know that sounds boring but to me it is awesome!)

    In the SW Universe, I would be an aerospace engineer (my undergrad degree here in our world) working for the INCOM Corporation, designing the follow-on to the T-70 X Wing. I could see myself volunteering for the Resistance and joining , eventually ending up as the maintenance supervisor/lead engineer for the Resistance X-Wing squadrons.

    Lol. My day job doesn't compare up to Mandalorians and following my own path. Im no hero but i try to do what is best no matter what actions the circumstances asks for.

    Growing up with SW, i wasnt into every aspects of what makes each film unique. Now, i have a fondness for jawas...tauntauns, droids...and alien creatures.

    Blizz, not just the adult tauntauns but the taunlets that are baby like. As you know ive gained a stronger love for old and new droids like Bunny, the LEP servant droid, BB-8, HK assassin droids and last but least, everyones fave r2 unit...R2-D2.

    I like Ithorians and twi'leks

    Very literally jack of all trades. Computer repair, home school substitute, draftsman, electrician, carpenter, plumber, mover of heavy objects and at least a half dozen other things. It was always my dream to fly, though, so in the SW universe, I'd be the captain of a tramp freighter, something big enough to hold my heavily modified Eta-2 Actis starfighter outfitted for racing (not combat). Use the tramp freighter business to support my snubfighter racing addiction. ;)

    @KesselRunner If you need any spare parts for that starfighter of yours let me know and we might be able to work a deal....you know with those new T-70 X wings we have a lot of old T-65 parts here at the base.

    I've done a few different things to get by. Cabinet work runs in the family, we used to build them, but nowadays we find it more profitable to sell them from third parties and then install them. That's what I mainly do for work at the moment. When the bottom fell out of the housing market a few years back I was forced to diversify though. In that time I did janitorial, stucco, restoration, call center customer service work for one of the major banks(easily the worst job I have ever worked), plus little things here and there. Nowadays I'm back to mostly doing cabinets, but I'll still occasionally do the odd cleaning job here and there, plus some snow removal in the wintertime.

    If I lived in the Star Wars universe, I would probably pursue the fighter pilot profession. I've always been really taken with the star fighters in Star Wars. Preferably I'd be a New Republic fighter pilot.

    Well I worked for 10 years for a company producing retail plans of city centres for local authorities & letting agents which was mainly data entry plus a bit of cartography & dispatch work thrown in.
    In the SW universe I would love to be a TIE Pilot hopefully working my way up to the infamous Black Squadron.

    I work in materials management at a hospital. In the SW universe I'd be a musician at some scummy cantina watering hole.

    sanitation.



    but seriously, i'm pretty dull. i'm a librarian in real life and i would be a librarian in a galaxy far far away.
    hopefully, though, i'd work in some cool holocron library and NOT look like Jocasta Nu. George sure did like his stereotypes.

    I work in IT- fixing computers issues, responding to emergencies, getting people set up with new hardware- I have a pretty diverse list of things to do.

    I'd imagine that I'd be an Imperial technician on the Death Star- doing what I need to do to get by, though not always agreeing with the methods or purposes of those actions.

    I am a freelance translator currently translating movies for our TV stations.

    Since I would be replaced by the likes of C-3PO in the GFFA, I'll have to make do as a bounty hunter. I was a good air rifle shooter when I was younger, so... MOVE, BOBBA FETT AND CAD BANE, LADY IS COMING! :D

    Or I would work for the HoloNet.

    I work as a Correction Officer at the Manhattan Detention Center. Long hours, usually boring work supervising inmates, 17 hours plus on my first and my last days. I get to go home on my second and third working days... usually. Great benefits and great pay but the clientele is rather awful at times. I practice martial arts for self-defense so being a Jedi would be my Star Wars twist. My major is illustration so being a digital painter would be my dream job.
