Just a matter of curiosity really, and maybe as a result, some inspiration for myself, but what is it that everyone here does for employment? How long have you done it? Do you enjoy it? Are you looking for something new/different and (if so) how do you plan on going about that? Me? My job title is a Qualification Technician and to summarise that, it's the role of me (and a small team) to inspect, build, and high-pressure test valves (essentially giant taps) for the Oil & Gas industry. I've been in this line of work pushing 14 years now, and I want out, though I'm not entirely sure how to go about that. I work shifts which allows for £6000 ($7650) a year of which I kinda' rely on for my mortgage and other expenses, the downside to that is evening college courses cannot be attended. I'm a little sceptical and distrustful of online courses too, one in the sense that their representatives never quite seem trustworthy (their job is essentially in sales anyway) and the other is that I'd not want to wind up on a course in something I was otherwise unsure about progressing with. My obvious problem is the pay cut which will no doubt be a factor in any new profession as I'd have to (naturally) start at the bottom and work my way up again. I now refer you back to my first paragraph.
