I'm 36 and at the moment I'm an engineer for Vodafone but when I look at the long (long) list of employers I had I guess you could say that my real quality is being a pain in the a**.

I've had about 15 jobs that always start out pretty good but after 1 to 2 years I get really bored. Every boss I had has always been happy with my work and I've have never been fired in my life. I have no real area of interest but I pick up thinks pretty quick.

I wish I knew what I wanted to be...

Maybe I'll just go back to plan A and become a fireman, policeman or astronaut.

Peace




Almost identical here.

It's been a while since this thread has had anybody comment in it. I'm not usually one for bumping my own threads, but in this case, I am interested in the vocation of ATS members, and a lot of people have joined since September 2014.

I am still working teaching, but am considering looking for new work, no doubt in education, as it is what I am trained for, enjoy, and can earn a decent income doing.

So ATS members, what is your job/vocation?

I am thinking about quitting my day job and moving into full time working artist and student. I love doing what I do now but it just isn't enough or working out for me very well. I love welding and fabricating metal into things that work. I am 30 and having a hard time with it.

I test software. Put differently, I break things. Put more correctly, I find ways in which software does not work the way it is intended to, so that others can close the gap between expectation and reality. Then I happy-dance.


I suppose this is still pretty much true. I really should draw a clearer distinction between "software testing" and "Software Quality Assurance"... but "testing" allows me to break it down to a pithy catch-phrase ("I break things!"). The truth is, as a Software Quality Assurance Lead, I am considerably more proactive than just breaking things that actually exist. I break things before we build them, so that we won't make those mistakes. I make recommendations on processes and tools which will ultimately ensure the success and acceptance of software, while remaining reasonably cost-effective. I become the in-house expert on whatever software we are working on at the time, and guide efforts to integrate a huge number of requirements into a core set of functions that are understandable, implementable, and ultimately usable by real people. This often requires fixing the company culture so that it allows such things to happen. I do not code, because my brain isn't wired that way... but when I'm doing my job, the project team will look like a collection of rock stars.

Also, even though it's the second year of belt-tightening, I work for a company that still exists. So... that's something.

I'm glad another poster mentioned the "off topic" button on ATS yesterday...or maybe it was the day before...regardless, I have found some interesting threads!

My "title" is Staff Development Coordinator...
I'm also an American Heart Association Instructor.
I do medical billing and coding for the same company.

Completely opposite of what I spent years doing in the past, that I LOVED ( I DO love what I do now AND believe I am making a "difference" it is just DIFFERENT ), and that was resort management.

As Dad used to say...
"Jack of all trades, master of none!"

I sent them some of my work and they put something together for me really. I have almost a year left on my GI Bill and I have opportunity to get all kinds of grants and scholarships if I compete for them. The downside is, I wont be welding and fabricating for a while if I go through with it.

Basically, I'm a Software Implementation Manager.
My wife is in a Senior Payroll position.

We work in the city, but drive home to our ranch.

But, on the side, I:

Board horses (i.e. people pay me a monthly fee to keep their horse in my stables/pastures) - self board, so they feed, care for their own horse.

Have a tack shop (sell horse equipment, like saddles, bridles, etc.), but, we're slowly transitioning out of this, converting the shop (at our house) to become a crop room (where she'd host scrapbooking events there, for about 12 people at a time)

Sometimes do custom cakes (think like Cake Boss, just smaller in scale)
Sometimes do wall murals (for like kids bedrooms, etc.)
Sometimes do photo-realistic pencil portraits by commission (mostly for friends and family as a special gift, but sometimes for money).

I... *shifty eyes*... work in Retail.
Ideally I would love to be an author, but my writing is terrible, doesn't mean I don't stop doing it though
practice practice practice! I live happily knowing that whatever I write will be better than that Twilight drivel and knowing that I have more descriptives up my sleeve than using the word "sparkle" every 2 minutes.
