    Hey all

    I don't know if this has already been done but just to find out a bit more about you guys I thought I would create a thread about what we do for a living. I work part time at Hungry Jacks (Australian version of Burer King) and during the week I am a school based apprentice boilermaker. I am a 1st year apprentice.

    So, what do you do for a living?

    That's three part time jobs that pays the same as one full time and gives me my weekends and flexible time to do what I need to during the week.

    Well I am an A&P aircraft mechanic who is currently not working as an A&P mechanic because it is ****ing hard to get a job here in Europe. Hopefully one of the litterally hundreds of resumes I sent out to litterally hundreds of companies here in Europe will pick me up in the next few weeks.

    If anyone has any friends inside some of these companies here in Europe please let me know. I would be greatful.

    Currently while I wait to get hired working on aircraft I work in a warehouse at the military airfield that I worked at when I was in the Army.

    Part time I'm a flight instructor and Inspection Authorization (IA). I do annual inspections on GA aircraft and maintenance consulting on jet warbirds (primarily L-29s and 39s) as well as flight instruction and flight reviews.

    Yes, well, RFLP is a little passe, as SNP's are more high throughput. We still use Caps markers for research purposes, some people call them RFLP as well. Not sure if you mean that?

    Yes I know, but some apply that to Caps markers, while it originally is a very ancient hybridisation technique, not very much used today.
