    Fun! Yes, so many ppl have interesting careers!

    I evaluate international degrees and credentials. So if you studied internationally, I research the institution's credibility, year's of study, etc, and provide a report giving you the US equivalency. Its interesting but can be get monotonous at times.

        I am an Operations Supervisor for a nationwide marketing company. They used to pay me to plan my wedding...haha

        now that I'm married...

        Technically I sit in front of computer screens and manage staffing levels to coincide with national spots, monitor real-time call volume & data, write employee reviews, and make sure people are at their desks taking calls. I talk to irate people who don't get what we do, and equally irate clients who pay a lot and want perfection. I'm in charge of a lot but it's second nature to me now so it's a breeze.

        Basically I either read or sit on BDW and try to look like I'm monitoring something when an employee comes my way...lol I also control the dial on our XM radio (you know, the important stuff) and make sure nothing catches fire or blows up during my watch :P

            As for me---- computer geek. I'm a project manager for an HR Software company. I work with developers on debugging software, test applications, analyze data output and write specs for new software functionality.

                  They use Avaya. But believe me, I can understand your pain---- my last industry was doing phone systems, voicemail, CCM software, call accounting software, etc... I absolutely HATE nortel. Our company is adding a call center and the IT staff is recommending nortel or avaya.

                    I'm glad you can sympathize! Nortel has been a headache since I've worked there. We've always had one form of their software or another and it is so frustrating because we rely on real-time monitoring, and there are always glitches like people's phone status coming up as "undefined" when they are on a call, or someone who is "not ready" showing up as "idle". In our industry those kind of glitches translate to lost revenue...were it up to me we would check into Avaya.
