So the thread asking for advice from people in IT related fields got me thinking that my career track has been far from what you might call traditional! Not including crappy high school/college jobs, my career has gone like this: 1. Student: Political Science 2. College Dropout 3. Body Piercest 4. 101st Airborne Soldier 5. Accounting Clerk 6. Corporate Accountant/System Automation That's kind of a weird spread when I consider that graduating high school I had plans on going into Politics, but I'm guessing some of you guys have taken way more eclectic paths in life to get to where you are now. I'd love to hear them if you're willing to share!
