What do you do for a living?

Recommended Posts

I'm 41. For the past 11 years I've work at the Schwan Food Company. They're the yellow refrigerated trucks who deliver frozen food to people's houses. They are also the makers of Jack Nicklaus Ice Cream. I work for Consumer Brands division in KY. It's a frozen pizza plant where we make Freshetta, Red Baron and pizza for 7 - 11 Convenient stores and Walmart among others. Work in the shipping department spending some nights in the -20 cold.

I'm a Radiographer (probably translates as X-Ray tech) Mostly doing general X-ray with a bit of CT scanning as well. Been doing it 26 years now, mostly working in major hospitals. More and more administration and teaching over the last few years, but I still really prefer clinical work.

If you're in a meeting with a bunch of IT guys, and you can't spot the nerd....you need glasses.

Ha. I had back to back meetings last week......the first was with IT guys and I said to myself "I can't be THIS nerdy", the 2nd meeting was with a bunch of upper level management and I looked around and said to myself "sh1t, I'm the nerd of the room".

.... use any derogatory term you'd like, but trust me, as someone who has been in IT for a long, long time... without the "IT guys/nerds" things would stop to function and come to a grinding halt.

I believe it was more of a term of endearment rather than derogatory :)

Definitely a term of endearment. I am a nerd, and I married a nerd.

In my experiences, I've worked with:

 

Network engineers - routing and switching

Systems engineers - servers and workstations

Security engineers - AV, Proxy, firewalls

Software engineers - developers and coders

 

It's not even close. The systems guys are by far the nerdiest.

The software guys are usually the most normal.

 

But when I was a network engineer, we had a saying:

"Network Engineers are just like everyone else. Only smarter"

I have a team of actuaries that work for me.....hard to beat this bunch on the nerd scale.  And this is coming from a CPA that spend a lot of his career doing technical accounting.
