I am sincerely curious how people choose their trade.There is something about answering these tell us about yourself type posts from IT people that makes me a bit squeamish. However, if you would like to divulge to us some real nice and private stuff Cricket, I'm pretty sure the boys won't mind that a bit.......:thumbsup::thumbup::laughing:
Do you still fly Frunk?I was a commercial pilot and needed a change in career. Took a 2 week career exploration program through the government and one of my top 3 career possibilities was electrician. I remember my first option was meteorologist and I was going to do that if the electrician thing didn't work out. But since I could start working as an electrician with absolutely no training, knowledge or previous experience.. I did it. Good thing because meteorologist was something like 6 years of university and each year would dig me $30k more in debt, while training to be an electrician actually made me money. Plus the government had all kinds of tax deductions and bursaries and grants, it was crazy!
So I just kept doing it.. except I never liked working for other people because they were always morons or business scoundrels. Started working for myself last year and it's been great. Can't imagine ever working for someone again. I do prefer the business side more than the electrician side of this career. Hopefully I can ramp up and hire guys to do my slave labour, while I play golf and shmooze with other business people.
