Some students may have 'sugar daddies' or 'sugar mamas'

Who knows....

I'd gladly trade my occupation to become a student with a sugar mama.

Like to see that booth on career day.

Me too.  Well, sugar daddy.  Well, sugar mama would work too, I suppose.   :?

Again with the difficult to classify.  I'm a homemaker first and foremost, and then I do some legal transcription from home.  Technically self-employed, but not what most advertisers would think when they hear "self-employed" as I only work for one company, but am an independent contractor.  Hmmm, I guess I'll just go with self-employed for now.
technically that's probably closest to the combo of

Self Employed, Administrative and Support Service

I'm a full-time student and a part-time retail employee.

Full time awesome, based on your profile tag references. Although, I doubt Mal would call himself a godsend.

FYI I voted for unemployed because at this current moment I am, but I work in insurance when I'm working.

I think you should break this into 2 polls: employment status (working for someone, self-employed, unemployed) vs field of work.

I agree, thank you! Very good idea.

Some people just got another vote given back.. so if you have multiple jobs.. you may edit your vote.
