Have an IT job interview in the morning.....

After a 2 1/2 year absence from the dreadful IT industry, I have a job interview in the morning...

I am not really nervous, but more sick to my stomach than anything. I thought once I left that shit, I would never have to look back... Well thanks to the economy the flying industry is basically shit plus I cant get even get a sniff with my flight hours for a flying job. Just about everyone is laying off pilots right and left.


So instead of starving my family to death I have sucked up my pride and sent out some resumes. How can someone get excited about something the despise so badly?

Any thoughts? I know I need to keep things rolling and help relieve some of the stress from the wife and family. That what is important.

You should send out your resumes to drug cartels. Perhaps they are in need of wily pilots.

I always thought you were a paid pilot. Good luck with the interview. It's tough out there and we've been fortunate enough to be largely unaffected and prospering in it. I wish you the same.

Someone once told me to NEVER pursue passion in the workplace. He was an IT guy. Sorry.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.

If you like the schooling then you're on your way. If not, abort.

I spent 12 years in the career field working at a Sr Network Engineer level. I hit job and career burnout... I worked for several different companies over that time and its the same thing regardless of where you go.

I did hit the wall and totally lost any desire to work with anyone in the IT industry... 90% of the time I cant stand any IT people I work with...

your main problem is going to be getting started. No matter how many certifications and degrees you have, if you don't have experience its really hard right now to get someone to take a chance on you.

I.T. jobs are no different from other fields. Depends on how the company treats you, views your value to the company.
