Resume meme, to list all the jobs you've had. 

Counter Help => ice cream shop but no free ice cream, phooey, as part time work while in high school
Sales Clerk => women's clothing shop for summer job while in high school
Research Assistant => really just copying articles for college work-study job
Drafting Assistant => state highway department while out of college for a year
Claims Examiner => coding claims for a health insurance company while out of college for another year
Database Entry  => at college property office after being kicked out of that college yet again for non-performance
Database Manager => same place but moved up a level
Office Temp => after being kicked out of property office for non-performance
Secretary => in the college radiation protection office, different job, same campus
Programmer => contract work for defense contractor, after finally earning the damn degree
Programmer => for the financial division of out-of-state company, till the division was acquired by another out-of-state company that laid off a quarter of the staff
Programmer => for a hospital consortium
Programmer => for  the bigger, more pervasive hospital consortium in the area 

The "programmer" positions keep changing their official titles but it's essentially been applications programming all along, though they pay me a lot better now than when I started. :-)   But overall, yeah, pretty boring list.... except... ergh... sure, most people there don't know the LJ...

WizO =>  part-time chatroom moderator for Wizards of the Coast, till I back-talked the real staff over how they were treating the roleplaying side of the chatroom

You were w/ Wizards of the Coast? And they fired you for uppitiness? That's a lot of cred. =)

The email she sent to the chatroom staff mailing list that resulted in the firing was truly beautiful.

Thank you both! And jkarabella was the one that everyone was sure was going to go too far. ;-)

You are so brave to post your job history. I mean it's a nice one! It's steady. Sturdy. I'm terrified to even put together a resume because I would have to LOOK at my history. My problem is marketable skills, or lack thereof. I've been a "stay-at-home" mom for 8 years and it's not working for me anymore because I'm divorced! Ha Ha!

The steadiness is a bit illusionary since the "non-performance" issue kept surfacing, feh on me (depression really kills motivation), but yep, the computer stuff is marketable, enough to keep trying again. Good luck on finding that foothold yourself!
