What do you guys do (JOB)?? - Page 4

post #46 of 211

Civil Engineer

Although my work at the moment hardly deals with the nitty gritty anymore. I've been moved around from being a Project engineer, Building Maintenance engineer, back to Project Engineer, Estate maintenance engineer & finally... pencil pusher, I don't know what my official job title is now! Doing odd jobs directly with the big bosses as & when they require it.

I work at Georgie Boy Mfg.
I do...

Customer Service, (Listen to old men whine)
Tech support, (Is the battery charged? Doh!)
Warranty Claims, (Why do you want paid 3 hrs to do a 1 hr job?)

and

Help the boss with his computer :-)
We make those BIG luxury motor homes.
GBM

Before that I was a machinist / tool & die maker for way to many years.

Professional Paperweight.

But this summer I got a gig doing Java programming at Argonne National Laboratory. How they can say programming is a research project is beyond me.

IT Manager (computer geek) for a group of Nephrologists (kidney doctors).

I install & manage our:
office PCs (71 at last count),
network & servers (9),
wide-area-network & VPN (10 physical locations in 7 cities),
Point-to-Point wireless links (2 in 2 cities).

My latest projects:
Creating our own education channel on the cable tv's dialysis patients watch. Each patient has a 10" TV attached to the chair.

Setting up a digital dictation system at the clinics, that auto-transfers the dictation to the transcriptionists at the main office.

I've got a fun job but being a one man show is a bit tiresome

Same here don't really need a degree in computer field. Most people just care what one knows and the experience one has. I actually dropped out of collage after 6 months to open a computer store. I could not stand the waste of time and money having to take the classes for things I already knew or didn't care for

Same here. Plenty of college, but not in CS, and no degree either.

Got my start in programming in the U.S. Army; one of the few MOS's that actually are in demand in the civilan sector. It's nice to see that the computer field remains open to anyone with the initiative to make something of it.

initiative to make something of it

Very well said. I have a few friends some of them my formal computer store employees that have put in the time and effort to make this hobby in to a full blown careers and now make around 80-100k a year with high school diplomas. On the other hand I have friends that are in to computers that seem to try to make it for years and never succeed. I see allot of people that get out of collage with some IT degrees and think they are hot shots and when it comes to the real world projects just totally crumble.

The coolest thing about my job is the fact that its also my hobby. If I didn't go to work I would be doing the same thing at home
