    Default So what's your occupation?

    I know some of you are full-time coders, and others site administrators, etc. but what is your full-time occupation if other?

    I know some of ya aren't even old enough to have a job, and it pisses me off that you know more about PHP than I do. lol

    Well, I'm an Electronics Technician for a utility company with a degree in Electronics, and a Bachelors in Business. Currently studying up to become Microsoft certified, MCSA as I am working towards becoming our companies System Administrator. Currently do a majority of it, as well as computer purchases, etc.

    Anyone else?

    Well I've been a club promoter for about the last three years now. That was my main source of income for a while, but the club scene in Atlanta isn't what it used to be anymore. Now I've moved more towards doing free-lance web development. I'll still be throwing more club events, but it seems that's becoming more of a "hobby" since I have to stick with what pays the bills.

    Anyone A+, Network +, or MCSA certified? I'm just about to take the A+ Hardware test, and was curious if anyone else has taken it or the others, or how it was, etc. I'd like to chat if so.

    Pixelfx, good for you jumping right into other things and going strong! I think you should add writing a book about your life to your list too.

    I'm a Jane of all Trades if you will... I do a little bit of everything (keeps me sane - I've always been that way).

    Full time... Mommy/wife (I have a 4 year old and a 1 year old)... everything else is considered "part time".

    I own my own web hosting company - going on 3 years now.
    I've been a web designer for almost 9 years now.

    I also do system administration work for other companies as well - I like to help out whenever I can.

    I'm the system administrator for HiveMail -- for a while Kevin and Chen couldn't stop killing the thing -- now they leave everything up to me to mess with. lol

    I also sell computers (desktops/laptops), computer hardware, and other various electronics/general items to resellers/wholesalers/private parties. I've done quite well with that. My best sale with that was a $8000 profit - I sold $90,000 in laptops to a wholesaler - who in return make about $4000 off of the sale. And I didn't do really much of anything besides be the middleman in the deal. The wholesaler purchased the laptops from me, I ordered them from my supplier, and my supplier shipped them to him. Not a bad job.... get paid to barely do anything (my kind of job!).

    Back in the day, before I had my 4 year now, I was a singer/guitarist/keyboardist in a popular local band up in Michigan. That wasn't a full time job though, that's just something that gave me an extra $150/week (sometimes more). I would love to get back into the music scene... but the scene here is lacking ([email protected] noise ordinances downtown).

    I'm employed as the IT Director for my company. MCSE, MCNE, CCNA and various other geek-certs in addition to a realworld degree in Electrical Engineering.

    You name it and it's part of my daily duties at work.

    Tungsten, any type of training or information you used to become certified other than raw knowledge? I'm green to the full-blown MCSA, but have a broad knowledge of networking. I'm currently looking at TestOut, www.testout.com to purchase for training software with simulation. They have an exam pass guarantee. Any suggestions? If so, I'd like to converse with ya in email if you wouldn't mind. I've tried the TestOut software and seems pretty good. Any help is appreciated.

    We just upgraded to Windows Server 2003 at our office, and all desktops to XP and I did 95% of that upgrade excluding some work on the server.
