Still a student as mechanical engineer.
I'm a Bootneck.
Nah, not anymore mate. Much much further north now unfortunately. But I still get down there allot...missus
Been a while, but i still lurk now and again
I work for a leading airline. I also work for an International government organization, on intergovernmental co-operation and information. Both interesting jobs with there own challenges, but the travel is great, if you can take it.
Just graduated and starting in September as junior consultant.
Likewise. Shame... was thinking I could pop over and have a gander at that BMW of yours.
Some recent pics of what I deal with at work.
5' long alligator gars
3-4' whatever this thing is
Many of my friends want to come work with me because they know how much I make, but I always warn them that they could die any day out here. I'm used it now. I don't recommend it unless you really consider yourself a badass. We did a 20hr shift the other day.
QC technician for a brewery, tasting different beer brands all day.
I work in Hospitality! But at the moment trying to get a job with the Federal Government! More money!!
Utility Construction here. we mostly bury fiber optics, phone or power lines. ATM me and another guy are burying fiber optics up to peoples houses which isn't too bad but people put some dumb crap in their yards making for rediculous obstacle courses and unnecessary hand digging.
Computing engenieering student here... (finishing this year)
Having a hard time deciding between java coding in a random company i've been partial-time working for a pair of years already (monkeying xD) or working @ one of the best investigation places here (little less paid tho, at least first years, but more interesting job...) <-- Aka, accepting suggestions :bang:
blowing glass as occupation and hobby currently, with scientific applications by profession.. and well varied other uses for hobby lol it's definitely nice setting your own hours, the freedom. many freedoms at work *puff puff*
Bachelor of Technology - Informatics and Security (basically computer/networking security)
Bachelor of Education - Technological Education (for being a high school tech teacher should I choose to)
Currently working at McDonald's but I have a co-op lined up at a medical insurance company.
I don't remember seeing those openings in my area. What I see are openings for something like programmers and administrators typically requiring a bachelor degree. I don't even have an associate degree. I wish graduation didn't require getting a computer job or internship. It has been several years now so I forgot a lot of what I was taught. I really wish I had taken up programming instead of networking.
Why don't you try getting certificates like CCNA or even CCNP? Yeah it costs a lot of money to be able to take the exams but the benefit with those Cisco certificates is that companies get reduction on Cisco products if they hire certified people. Another benefit for you is that you can refresh your knowledge about networking
Programming is boring, Networking is a good skill to have plus it's more interesting imho.
Admins don't really need a degree, MCP/Cisco/CompTia or other related qualifications are as good if not better, although many places will accept equivalent industry experience...
If you're in NZ check out TradeMe Jobs or Seek, there's always heaps of IT jobs listed especially in Auckland.
Here's TradeMe for example...
I work as a photo technician but I am currently majoring in Computer Science. I plan to join the Air Force after to work in Cyber Command.
