Apparently the opposite of a purchasing manager is a slaughterer and meat packer.

I'm going to have to go with no on this one.

Roc I hate to break it to you but I also got model and our jobs have nothing to do with each other. Or at least the closest I could come up with to my job. My job wasn't even on there. I get that the failing New York Times is failing but im not sure they need to be buzzfeed

Based on the job titles I've had when working for someone else over the past 25 years:
Model, Physicist, Mobile Home Installer

I work in government which has decent benefits but pays shit so I work as a wildlife and natural resources consultant on the side. Mostly I collect data needed for energy permitting.

That looks like a conflict of interest, but the government work I do is not related to the consulting I do. It's a delicate dance that I have been questioned about a lot. I tell the state "Hey, pay me and I won't have to do this other shit." But that ain't happening.

I suppose "trunk strength" is important if you're an elephant working at the circus.

I dont have a job. Just access to your trust fund. Better check that balance, bro.

Most government jobs pay worth shit. I hope they give in eventually , but since it's the government I doubt that will happen.

I put in my job, and it said the opposite job was physicist (which seems non-opposite because the number 1 skill for my job according to the thing was number facility, which is number 3 for physicists). Out of curiosity, I put in physicist to see if it's opposite would come back as my job. It came back as model.

So yeah, it works.
