    But it's still good. Decent pay, I get to solve problems and listen to Spotify all day, so I'm not complaining.
    Are you based in Stockholm? I started my career with Electrolux who, as you probably know, are a Swedish corporation. Visited Stockholm several times. Lovely city.

    I know Electrolux, they're one of the bigger engineering company's in Sweden. Though probably not true, they're credited to have had the slogan "Nothing sucks like Electrolux!" in a marketing campaign for vacuum cleaners in the UK, a long time ago.

    I'm not based in Stockholm. It's a beautiful city though, and as a lover of long scenic city walks, I go there at least a couple of times every year, for shopping, culture and strolling.

    I am a graphic designer working for a large corporate, and also do a bit of freelance, I specialise in brands and brand identity.

    Would like to work on a fashion brand but haven't had the opportunity just yet, but I'm sure its just around the corner.

    Love what I do

    I'm off to Russian next week for a month to work on the Winter Olympics, i don't do cold very well so it'll be interesting!

    Sorry if i sound like i'm bigging up the company i work for too much, proud employee!
    Sounds like a really diverse and interesting job. Would love to travel for work and see some cool places at the same time. Good like with the weather in Russia!

    Great thread idea btw, Joshua. Very interesting to see what people do in their daily work lives.
    Would love to do dabble in a bit of architecture and interior design, always found it a thoroughly interesting subject like all forms of design. Great to hear what everyone does for a living, some interesting jobs.

    It is indeed a beautiful city. I used to stay near the station.

    As a big Wallander fan, I’d also like to visit Ystad!!

    I was born near Ystad. It's a small, but really beautiful little town. In fact, all of Scania (the county where Ystad is) is beautiful - and I'm not saying that just because I'm from there. Taking a tour of Malmö -> Ystad -> Simrishamn -> Kivik and back again is highly recommended. Close to Copenhagen as well, which is another beautiful city.

    Cheers mate, I've only been in the job a couple of years so the only places I've been abroad are France and Turkey so far. Russia will be good, I'm told its quite a mild city (warmer than London in winter) but i'm up the mountain doing the skiing so it'll be freezing i expect!

    I work part time at Specsavers opticians on a weekend so that helps to pay for 'some' of my clothes

    My career goal is ultimately to become a surgeon and I'm looking at another 5 years in uni after this degree which kind of sucks but hopefully the hard work will pay off!
    Fair play mate, the 5 years will be worth it! 5 years is nothing compared to a lifetime of doing a job you love.
