IT Job Workplace
|Blogs > Tollhouse1|
I did an internship at an oil company... all I did was enter shit into a database which was pretty boring.
The other workers that were actually done school were in IT, basically going around helping the whole building with shit like microsoft word or "why is my internet not working"
The other, better IT employees had their own projects and were usually only in the boardroom discussing. The IT project manager made six figures a year. He got his job after being with the company for 7 years. I try to see myself in that position someday with my Comp Info systems and management degree.
Some similarities between the two: both have a very casual, laid back culture. You likely won't have a dress code, won't have to deal with a massive hierarchy, and will spend time making fun of the many stupid users you encounter(plebes). Both leave you in front of a computer screen for many hours at a time, and both give you plenty of time to do what you want.
Anyway, I have experience as a CS student, an IT worker, and a coder so let me know some more specifics on what you're doing / hoping to do and I can give you a better answer.
find out which annoys you the least, look into what you need to learn/know to get into that
