I walked in, gave them a cv and a firm handshake and they knew I was the right person for the job.

My school has a student employment newsletter, and the company was included. I thought the job sounded fun and interesting so I applied. It turned out they are used to and like hiring students and they've been fine to have had me working during school months and off when I would move home in Summer.

That was a few years ago, and I don't have to move anymore. I've had high and low love for the job at different times. Very happy with it right now, but I'll be graduating soon, and my position isn't exactly in my field of study, so who knows what'll happen next!

Left my resume a bunch of times and they gave me a call.

I work in a print shop doing just about everything. They haven't let me run the 28 or 40 inch Komori presses yet.

I work as a senior programmer/analyst for a financial institution. I got the job because the financial institution I worked for as the IT rep (title was Network Administrator, though networking was the hat I was least comfortable with) was being merged into this new company, and they were impressed with me during the merger. Though, they were far more impressed with me shortly after the merger, because of other projects. In the prior financial institution, I had the IT job because I moved over from collections. I was able to get the collections job because I could claim "experience" from a week long job where I was collecting money from local businesses to keep their signage in local lodge. I got that job because some random guy ran up to me in the parking lot of grocery store (where I was applying) and asked I was looking for work.

It was kind of a strange chain of events that led me to the work I am in today. I dropped out of high school and got a GED, then dropped college after three classes. But, had I kept going to college, I likely would have wound up in debt and would not likely have as good a job as I've gotten, for as high of pay, in the career I have always wanted to be in. Even if I had, it would have been several years later before I would have gotten the level of position and level of pay.



Your story is quite common in the IT/Software world. I never finished college either and a lot of the really good software and network engineers I know never actually finished college either.

Wait what? Bro (or bro-dett), work isn't all there is to life. Its only a means to feed and house yourself if you choose to live in a city or something. I'm working now, but only so I can buy my quiet piece of land in the mountains with a good water source, and I'm dipping from society to live in peace (got pretty good at growing vegetables, hunting small game and fishing - next thing is raising some livestock and chickens and such).

Ahhhh. You have to experience the outdoors and life in the wilderness. It's so fucking liberating. Freedom from EVERYTHING. Out there is where the real life is. Not sure if your into FPS or an RPG fan, but video games only emulate freedom. The outdoors truly grant that freedom because there are no rules out there that tell you how you should live your life. It's only living life.

I once brought a friend out there who only knew city life, and I told him, "Out here, everything people ever told you before doesn't matter. The rules of society and what people say you should and shouldn't become, don't matter out here. Because out here, it's just you and the Earth, and you living with the Earth".

He was a changed man after that trip.

Problem there is i hate nature i want to destroy it mostly but for my own safety i supress those feelings xD...if i got to a planet with no rules i would do my best to destroy it and kill everything on it.

I prefer human creations and machines
