I still work at the same outfit, but I'm a system administrator now and the bosses are trying to get me to switch into a managerial "team lead" role which I'm not sure I want (not much of a people person, honestly).

In short I do everything technology system related in the K-12 environment from support, design/planning, roll out, fiscal... and some people training. I'm in charge of a few public districts on this side of Cleveland but I help out company wide at least once a week. It's a bit of a pain this time of year... :rolleyes:

The wife is a veterinarian now at a four-doctor practice out by Hopkins airport... it pays the bills. :)
And now I'm officially a "Team Lead" which boils down to... all of the above, PLUS now managing all the techs who work at the schools I manage...

Thanks Ron, St, Pete was not much to our likeing ,All expences paid back to NC :wink2:
Nice (well, aside from the white stuff part)! Welcome back sort-of back up north!

Very cool! How's that been going since you opened up?

Pretty good so far. I was fairly busy the first week, slammed the 2nd week, and then fairly busy this week.

Congratulations Brandon & Mikey. Takes some guts to set up your own company especially these days. Good luck to you!

Brandon, my wife works for a specialist veterinary surgery over here. She's not a vet though, she's the personnel manager. Anyway, if your wife's company are looking for a personnel manager with experience in the veterinary field, let me know. Could be our route to a green card and cheaper gas! :grin2:

I work as a cad draughtsman/designer for an engineering company on the edge of the New Forest in the south of the UK. The company design and manufacture custom rigging and suspension equipment for theatres and studios. We have about 1300 products which are all modelled in Solidworks. I've done pretty much the same thing (in various companies) since I left school (I missed the ambition gene), although back then we used to draw everything by hand on a drawing board. I've been made redundant a few times, but am hanging in there. With most companies now getting all their manufacturing done in the far east, we're a bit of a rarity making most things in house. I'm sure our days are numbered, but hopefully not for another couple of decades.

I promoted to Systems Analyst I with another department of my employer 9 months ago. What I do now compared to what I used to do before is "meh", but I get paid more and I'm doing less. Albeit, it's not the ideal type of work I want to be doing, it's the title and more money.

I left my emissions repair job with Terrible Herbst, they sold to Valvoline Instant Oil Change and I got out of the quick lube/emissions repair and light duty auto industry. I started at Kenworth working on semi trucks and trailers. I'm finally beginning to want to work on my own cars again. It's the change I really needed and they have treated me better in the last month than Terrible's did in the last 10 years. Also a 25% raise in pay. Cheers to new beginnings!
