Thank you for all your responses! They were all absolutely fantastic. I enjoyed reading every single one. There were several professions which I actually had to look up. Ultimately I truly appreciate all the feedback and contributions everyone was willing to share with the ZAM community.
I've made a rough list of all the professions which were mentioned before this post. I began by tallying different professions, but soon noticed that it was a bit too difficult. Instead I've listed several observations I've noticed while reading. Perhaps you readers will be able to provide feedback or additional information on top of the things I noticed.
The Contributions in this thread are a random sample of the forum community which is only a fraction of the MMORPG community. That makes this Thread and unreliable and biased way of obtaining factual statistical information from the player base. The list below, observations, and conclusions are for anecdotal purposes only. But I'd like to also note, even though anecdotal, we can still learn something from what we've read.
All responses are welcome.
-Sales - Medical (Also applicable to business)
-Emergency medical Technician
-Health education promotions
-Sales - Automotive
-Administration for sales
-Payroll technician (non for profit)
-Business critical specialist
-Service delivery coordinator
-Web applications Developer
-Graphics and multimedia programmer
-Music and video production (general)
-Research and development science
-Waterway Transportation logistics
-Non-profit health organization
Observations I've noticed:
-Large amount of engineers
-Interesting array of jobs
-jobs generally require large amount of education
-Jobs require large amount of professionalism/initiative/ambitian
-Several individuals raising dependants
-Mainly men or mainly male dominated careers contributed
-Many people have more than one career
-Many people have changed careers, and sometimes to drasticly different fields
-not one other nurse (sad face)
-Certain institutions have less people than others (Food industry, Schools, Government, Law, Sales)
MMORPGS and their reflective forum communities are widely known to be male heavy. This could contribute to the large amount of male dominated careers displayed.
People who contributed are mostly in careers which require a large amount of academic training to be successful in.
Several male contributors are caring for Dependants, are home makers, and also work
Many people listed several different careers in their professional experience, which can note the industriousness, ethic, and age base of these players.
Age base can also be noted due to careers in general. As stated before, large amounts of academic experience and work ethic are required for a high quantity of the jobs listed.
This was, once again, an absolutely excellent exercise. I hope in the future, if I have another question, it will be answered with as much enthusiasm as this one was.
