I'm in IT, have been for almost 10 years. Right now I am the Sr. Systems Administrator for the Commonwealth of MA's Microsoft Exchange and Active Directory implementation for 28k+ users and growing daily. We've got around 100 "customers" or state agencies on our centralized system which we provide messaging and directory services for.
Why? I love it. It gives me a new challenge almost every day working with all of our different customers and the opportunity to work in such a large diverse environment was too good to pass up when it was offered to me.
I am an Operating Engineer i run a building in Manhattan NY love the job because my boss is married to my cousin so guess what unless i set the building on fire or kill someone i am set for life and yes i belong to a UNION please dont hate
I am an automotive technician,specifically a transmission builder,currently working for the man,but hoping to open my own shop when wife gets done with nursing school. The why part is because it can be very challenging and it feels good to be the only one able to figure some problems out!
I run an electrical and environmental test lab for the aerospace/aviation products my company produces.
We run UL qualification and MIL STD qualification tests as well as new product development tests.
The best part of the job is getting some pretty little product that a Design Engineer has prototyped and having a chance to kill it. I really enjoy the look of sadness on their face when I return the remains of their little pretty in a box!
