it can be interesting and a lot of my friends have travelled and are just working so they can head off again so it can be good to swap stories, but quite depressing if you're looking out the canteen window at a rainy windy scene......

One of the best things about my job is the 4 - 5 months worth of holidays each year.

5 months?
20 days?

We generally start a job here with 2 weeks of holidays a year, plus legal holidays. I was fortunate enough to get 3 weeks, plus overtime, although some people spend 5 years stuck at 2 weeks off before graduating to the next level. We're very envious of Europeans when it comes to holidays.

In Paris I met someone who worked for a museum - he whined about only having 3 months off a year and having to work one weekend a month. I wanted to smack him with my shoe!

Oh, and I'm a copywriter for a direct marketing agency that specializes in non-profit organizations. If, well, that means anything to anyone...

I work as a consultant for a systems integration firm. Basically I travel around to different clients, assess their customer care, marketing and billing systems and suggest potential ways to improve them. Then I manage the people who improve them. And I write a lot of proposals.

Good things about my job:

  • lots of travel
  • ability to work on lots of different projects

bad things about my job:

  • long periods away from home, potentially in crappy cities
  • bad management
