in reply to Changing Jobs

I spent 10 years in the active duty military, working in what could be considered the IT field. After I left there, I had a 18 month break (working as an armed security guard), then finally got my foot back in the door, and have had 3 IT jobs in last 8 years, with my current job being the longest held at over 6 years.

With each job, I've managed to have a salary/benefits increase as well as learned different things along the way. Each job has had its pluses and minuses, but over the long run, its pretty much evened out.

I am currently in the process of looking around for a new job, but haven't had any luck so far.

[stevieb]: hey, thezip
[perldigious]: I don't miss having to drive up and down in elevation on roads that are iced over, I white knuckled gripping the steering wheel every time I had to where I used to live.
[perldigious]: So I don't envy you mountain guys if you have to drive in the winter, even with tire chains.

[stevieb]: man, I absolutely LOVE driving in the worst winter conditions. In the mountainous roads, there are extremely few (if any) other drivers. I love the challenge. I've been doing extreme off-road my whole life, and as I said, I'm always well...
[stevieb]: ...prepared for even the very worst
Discipulus seems a part of the globe very unfrindly with Kawasaki riders..
[thezip]: My doggies love it when it snows
[perldigious]: As long as you are a good "boy scout" stevieb, more power to you... but I like my Jeep, and don't like the idea of rolling it or crashing it in to anything. :-)
[thezip]: Me, not as much.
