Wow that sux. IT isn't for everyone for sure, but it keeps Bluebob, 2k2madmax, ny98max, and myself employed (and I'm sure there are more.) It's definitely competitive. There are definitely other fields that are easier to get into.

In about an hour I am heading over to the career fair to try and find a job to apply my soon-to-be-obtained EE degree to. Hopefully I can make this thing pay off.

HERE HERE!:D I too used to work in IT for some years, and eventually found myself burnt out and hating the job. I kinda think I had my major midlife crisis early because now I'm involved in setting up ponds and aquariums, and I'm hoping to work towards a future career as either a master scuba dive instructor, or as a marine biologist or dolphin trainer. I had the revelation/inspiration to do so while I was diving on vacation in Cozumel. I was dreading going back to the IT world as my vacation was almost over. I decided, I really hate IT, so why do something you hate when there are people getting paid to do something they are passionate about? I love diving and the ocean, specifically all the facinating creatures that live there. While I was diving on vacation, I was thinking about how the guide gets paid to do this for a living! So I thought, "Why can't I do this?" Then I started thinking about all the stuff that really interests me, and how I might turn that into a career, and thats what I came up with. I also concluded that to get the career I want, I should live near the ocean somewhere. I haven't done that yet, for a lot of reasons (not the least of which is money), but I'm working on it. I'm going to get as much training as I can locally first, and see how my pond and aquarium business goes for a couple years, and then figure out where to go from there. I guess my point is, do something you really enjoy, even if you might get paid better doing something else. Your happiness will be well worth the difference in pay.

BTW- I have talked to a number of professional dive guides/instructors, as well as a dolphin trainer now, and allthough none of them are particularly wealthy, they all say they love their job and wouldn't want to do anything else. I don't know about you, but I've never heard anyone in IT say that about their job.

While I agree that IT isn't for everyone, I do love my job and don't see myself doing anything else for a living. Over 5 years in this industry and counting...
