I have been working as a temporary employee in QC (Quality Control) at a local manufacturing company, Reaper Miniatures.
If you are slightly geeky, you might know about the company. They make pewter miniature figures associated with World of Warcraft, Dungeons and Dragons, and other fantasy games. The owners are friends of ours and they hired me on when they were swamped with two huge contracts for special edition pieces. I have been very happily busy for about two months and will continue for about another month. (Yeah!)
As the individual pieces are cast they are put in a bin which is handed to me to inspect for casting errors (soft spots, missing limbs, cracks, rough patches etc.). Apparently, I am very good at this. I have collected some components to use in jewelry -- wings and things. Stay tuned.
Everything happens for a reason. Perhaps my next career (#6 and counting) will be in Quality Control.
Here is a couple of questions for you:
How many careers have you had?
Which one has been your favorite career?
