I was never really a computer nerd (no offense anyone) but I went to school for Information Systems Technology because I know there is money to be made in it. I love the constant change and challenges that come with IT. But I do also hate some of the stress that comes up with it...its never fun to get called in the middle in the night and brewing is held up causing a production outage. I also hate how every family and friend always wants me to work on their computers all the time lol. But I like to help people even though inside I am screaming because its usually something really dumb they did like get a virus from clicking a link to give them a million bucks!....But this is cool and I would be interested to hear where you all work and your experience in the field.
That sounds like the typical IT guy. I get all the same issues from the late night calls (very few) to the family members that need help all the time.
I've been working in IT for almost 8 years. i work for a small consulting firm and i support a little bit of everything. I specialize in about everything server related, from VMware to Citrix. I enjoy it some days and hate it others.
