    Just curious. I remember on an old forum there was this one guy who knew it all. I could have sworn he was some IT expert or something. Turned out he was 19 and still in HS. He was giving IT guys advice.

    I am a Medical Director for the largest hospital chain in California. Did my 4 years of criminology at NYU only to find out that based on my family history ., I would not be a good candidate for the job I studied for. Really sucked but atleast I got my education in (full paid Scholarship). Have been doing this for the last 6 years. Moral of the story...Stay in school.

    I'm an air taffic controller in the Marine Corps. Get out in a year and then make the big bucks! I work in the radar room and while I may not consider myself an expert, I know a lot about it for my age and experience. We're an approcah facility, so I see it all. Been at this facility for 2.5 years and I plan on being fully rated before I reach my 3 year mark. And while I have some college experience, I have no degree. Gotta love the military for giving me the oppurtunity. =)

We make applications like Epic (sound familiar DA6?) perform better over wireless networks. I'm a technical point of contact as companies evaluate and decide if our product is a good fit based on their business requirements.

    Traveling for fun is one thing. Traveling for work is another. It get's exhausting after a while, but on the bright side I never have to go to an actual office!

    This is a cool thread, with lots of interesting professions.

    Good idea, Roy.

    Ya know, its not as stressful as you think. Its only stressful during the training period because there's a lot riding on how you perform. But once you get qualified and have some experience under your belt, its cool. Only thing is, there's absolutely no room for error. Kind of like a surgeon. You have to be very precise. But I love it!

    Well it sure sounds like you have a handle on it. Nice to know someone level headed is at the helm and keeping planes away from each other!

    You are one smart dude in my book.

    Naw, I just stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night

    Well, you won't be sorry that you're paying your dues. And someday, you'll be making more $$ than the rest of us.
