if that even makes sense? i guess by choosing this career, i am basically bound to work in someones business, sitting in an office for the rest of my life? is there anything more interesting out there? or can someone suggest a specialty that could spice things up a bit? I have a BS in Biology... i would love to get in the field or something....

i dunno....

    Consulting, training, sales, start your own business and do all three, make adult IT CBTs, etc. There are plenty of opportunities.

    Edit: No offense, but if you run with the CBT idea, please only contribute as a writer ;)

    well, to pull off the CBT thing, i'd really have to get back into game shape.. icon_wink.gif

    i dont know what my problem is.... i think the last 2 jobs i had really left a bad taste in my mouth. i dont know anyone at all in this field, so i dont know whats out there, what to ask or WHO to ask.... i actually have a BS in Bio and minors in Chem/Physics and Music with a concentration in Marine Bio. i guess i had hoped i'd be able to use my science skills along with computer skills somewhere along the way.....


    i think i have a better chance of getting back into game shape.....

    How hardcore are you? You can always sign up to go to Antarctica or on a submarine voyage.

    Start your own consulting business. Cater to scientists and researchers since you're familiar with that crowd (given your science background). I bet they pay $$$ for their computer support and stuff... plus you might know some colleges you could take on as clients.

    Actually tdean brings up a great point. I too am in the same situation where I love IT but at the same time hate being stuck ball and chain to an desk or in ONE room. I was thinking about doing consulting and/or freelance but unfortuantly I only have about 3 years of expereince on me so I dont know how well that would go.

    But it seems like the other alternatives are opening your own biz to CBT videos it sounds like.
