    I do electrical work for friends to make sure they don't burn their houses down, and drink their beer while I'm there. :D

    The government has an apprenticeship set up here that you have to go though or challenge the test! It's 4 levels of school with work hours in between.
    I'm an maintenance electrician for my job and they put me though school. :cool:

    I freelance for a company that does Internet advertisements. Basically embedded video ads along the sides of web sites, and we add text and image rollovers throughout the video to drive click-throughs.

    Yeah. The company I freelance for has their own online proprietary studio software that we upload the client videos to and create the ad content within. I can work anywhere I have a computer and a high-speed connection.

    I only do creative, they have account reps and traffic coordinators who handle the clients, work out the advertising costs and manage the analytics.

    I like to make my stuff look cooler than some people do, so I have the entire Adobe Creative Suite on my workstation, but I rarely use more than PhotoShop.

    $35/hr keeps me in the truck for a while.

    This sounds like something I could get into. I'll have to look around for this kind of work.

    Thanks for the info!
