First thing first, love what you guys are doing. Keep up the great work!
I reference to my question, I currently work for a fraternal life insurance company in NW Pa as a System Analyst.
To put it plainly, the place is run with the mantra of "its who you know, not what you know". I am at wits end. My education is an associates of business, computer systems networking/IT, which I find myself using less and less. Is there any advice/insight that any of you can give me to find a job that is 1. in my field and 2. not make me want to scoop my eyeballs out with a rusty spoon.
There are far to many companies run with said mantra in mind, but keep looking! There are great places to work out there (not that I work at one either). AND Lebozo is right, but maybe go to part time and supplement the lost income with entrepreneurial efforts. I recently started telling friends and family I can do computer work for them, and it's picking up fast.
I appreciate the input. I do a little on the side (co-workers, etc..) while working full time, and preparing for updates to my CompTIA certs, but the area I am in only will go so far. (dying manufacturing town, i.e locomotives)
Haven't read the word locomotives in a very long time.I'm sorry man.
You know what?It's always the people who deal with problems that become the entrepreneurial type.Even though you might have to rough it out for a while,you are aiming to solve communal problems. At the very least,you know what plagues people and won't ignore them like suits at corporate do.
