I quit programming in c#/C/C+/C++ a few years ago and got back into wrenching on cars. In the middle of a 4.2l engine in a ford truck install, and no matter how dirty, bloody, agitated I get, it's still less stressful than dealing with the IT crap.

Turned my PC into a gamer now, no work programs on it, and couldn't be happier.

Start your own business, repair and build computers for old people so they can chat with their kids. Niche market that's the key and being your own boss, you just have to learn to be a people person. Selling yourself is the key to success in anything, just be attractive friendly and personable and you will be successful in anything.

I was told by a client (I do construction) that CNNA-E-Voice is where the money in IT is at. There is only a handful of E's in this field and most of it is contract work. You should see this guys house !! He makes a couple hundred grand a year.

There is a possibility you suck at what you do.

this.

most people who work in IT or anything related to information technology, are absolute clueless idiots. they learn things by rote, they don't understand any underlying math, they can only google for solutions they'll blindly apply.

Re: I'm A Computer Technician And I Make As Much As A Security Guard
And it's because computers are more common than security guards.

Almost everyone has one.

Think about it.

And then there is the fact that really smart people that use computers can assemble and fix their own.

Think about that too.
 Quoting: G. House


What in the world are you talking about, does the average person set up a network in a 3 story building?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24731549


Really smart people are average?

The company I work for doesn't have a 3 story building but we did install all our computers and our video camera system and networks ourselves.

We've NEVER had a "computer technician" come in for any of it.
 Quoting: G. House


And I would not want my data on your computers, or stored on your network.

The greatest danger we face is often ourselves.

An American has no chance wasting his life in IT unless you are at the top of the ladder,the workers are imported from India where its cheaper too train these people and they have more qualifications and will work for a bag of peanuts and dont ask for anything else,they will try and out do you at every turn constantly under cutting you,they dont need a living wage,the American worker wants everything and the weekends off.

This is what globalization is all about,we the slave workers dont come into the equation,they dont cr about our lives.

Stop playing the game.

The field is overloaded with low to med skilled techs....those on the top rungs with all the updated certs and skillz still make good money....
