I jus recently switched jobs. I was working in the hospital as a floor nurse but have since taken a job as a home hospice nurse

If you ever want to slow it down and have a cushy Monday - Friday no weekends or holidays job. Look into being an RN Care Navigator, I have been doing this for the past 18 months and I couldn't be happier.

My schedule right now is pretty nice, M-F 8-5 give or take a half hour or so, and I love it. I know care navigators aren’t used much around where I live unfortunately, but I know I don’t plan on living in Indiana the rest of my life either

ONE OF US! ONE OF US! #nerds

Didn't realize there were so many of us in IT.

I'm a IT Systems Engineer for one of the (in my opinion) best public universities in the state of Michigan, and my alma mater. Worked my way into IT after getting a degree in journalism, starting at level one. Spent about nine months doing basic desktop support, six months doing help desk, six months as a desktop admin, and then moved to Wyoming where I was the IT Manager/Network Administrator for the Casper Star-Tribune newspaper for a year and a half. Moved on as a systems administrator in New Mexico for a little over two years and then scored my current gig back home.

Perks of being on a college campus include the university golf course and driving range, where I am a practice member. As long as the weather cooperates, you can find me during my lunch hour hitting a bucket of balls or on the practice green.

Have worked in IT since 1990... Now at Boston U. developing and supporting data analytics.

Sadly no golf course (city campus) but my kids get free tuition if they can get in...😊

No kids in my future, but they would only get half. Full-ride to Boston U sounds great.

Me on the other hand, I'm working on my Master's for free at the moment. So I can't complain.

Data analytics? Working with math/stats department? I'm on the core infrastructure side so I'm a little ignorant on things outside of the data center.

Spartans? My coworker actually graduated from MSU and used to work at the course, but this was a long time ago haha.

Nice. We run an MSP so we're basically sysadmins for a bunch of SMB's. I'm like a jack of all trades master of none kind of deal. Comp Sci drop-out who went to business school and got my degree in MIS. I found that no matter what I was trying to do in life, I always gravitated towards computers after I started building them in high school around 2002 to own noobs in video games. Kind of the only thing I've found any type of passion in other than golf, so I stuck with it and got really lucky to find a bunch of like-minded degenerates to work with. We kind of took everything we didn't like about working at our previous MSP and dumped it when starting ours 3 years ago. Structure is more like a law firm where you eat what you kill, but you still represent one firm, rather than a trickle-down pay scheme where the guys on the bottom are constantly getting dumped on. The consequences so far are making more money and working way, way less. Can't really complain and I count my blessings every day! Gives me more time to lurk the forums when I'm not playing/practicing :)

Nice! Love the free degree. I went nights for 8 years and got my undergrad for free. 🙂

I don't work with the academic departments... I'm on the admin side and all about data used to run the University.

Sounds familiar. Graduated with a business degree but ended up in IT for the past 37 years...

Nope, Grand Valley State University. We're a good-sized D2 school, known mostly for football. Notre Dame's Brian Kelly got his head coaching start here. I did get accepted to MSU, and they have the best journalism school in the state, but ultimately ended up here.

Sounds like a nice gig for an MSP. Historically, I've been a jack-of-all-trades as well, but the last two opportunities have been more silo'ed than my earlier jobs. Have done a lot with Office 365 and Exchange Online, and currently work with core infrastructure stuff like backups, monitoring and configuration management.

I retired as a Command Sergeant Major in the US Army. I started out as an infantry medic and held leadership positions that increased in complexity and responsibility along the way. My last six years I served as an executive leader at an Army Medical Center that employed over 4000 Soldiers, Civilians and Contractors. I retired in January of this year and currently fulfill my time by volunteering for a number of nonprofits. Concurrently, I perform independent leadership coaching and organizational culture development.

Heyo, our company golf league that's starting up is going to be over at The Meadows every now and then, I'll have to keep an eye out for ya... I remember as a kid watching one of Kelly's national championship teams play. Although being a Wolverine I can't root for him anymore at ND ;). 

As for me, I'm 23, a Mechanical Engineer working for a consulting company that does a little bit of everything: product development, business development, talent solutions, marketing. Great people to work with, really awesome place to be.

Every now and again projects get pretty busy, but generally hours are pretty flexible so that's pretty great. Lots of diversity of projects too which keeps things interesting.

Looks like I share the same sort of background as a lot of other fellow spies.

I've been in tech/IT since 1997. For the past 3 years I've been the marketing manager of a company that makes hardware monitors/sensors for environments, mostly data centers/server rooms/warehouses but we've been expanding our reach.

Prior to that I was a sales/marketing manager for a regional ISP that sold internet access, web/email hosting, VoIP, etc. I did sales for around 18 years total and just got completely burned out around year 15 so I went back to school for my MBA and that ended up landing me the gig I have now.
