I'm in IT for now but being an all-in-one tech (Help Desk/PC Technician/Server Technician/Cell Phone Tech/Security System Tech) is beyond exhausting. I want to challenge my brain but not at the ridiculous pace the modern day IT person has to keep up with. I'd rather design engines, suspensions, and other mechanical parts than install yet more Adobe, Java and Microsoft updates. In the end if I could get a job where I could specialize on the network back end of things (servers or layer three) that might be a better option. I'm just not enough of a people person for the help desk side of things to not get to me on a daily basis.
But with the job outlook being as it is right now I'm just happy (for the most part...barely) to have my bills paid every month.
