A really good job.. sometimes is not the one that pays the most nor the one with the expense account or travel. It's the one where ones efforts are validated and the person is valued for their input. The $$ are nice but better is not having to dread the alarm in the morning. --- and I've got one and it is GREAT.. took me 22 years in the services and several attempts in the 'real' world with of hours reading and attending groups and consider myself competant but... I beat the alarm clock most days

Code On

Darn tootin' mdaughtree.

I'm generally reticent in coming forward, and always thought others knew more than me (they probably did). Having been encouraged at my current job, and listened to, we have adopted a lot of my suggestions, this has fortunately worked out stormingly and we have more work than we can handle (we have doubled in size over 2 years - other factors are in play, it's not just me of course, but I have had most input into the technology direction). I'm just riding the wave now!

My dream job can not be posted here. Sorry, it is illeagal and I am not even sure it is possible untill the olympics are over. My 2nd and 3rd dream jobs are in thailand and not postable. The fourth dream job well, who wouldn't but I will leave it in Vagas. Anyways, the 6th dream job now that one I can talk about. It is Steve Jones's job. Sit around the house in a dress and write blog's all day. Every once and while scan internet for obscure canadian intstramental music groups and then do a web/pod cast maybe while dressed up in one of my original costumed super hero PJ's. Post a few more Blog, tweeter myself some cool SQL theories. Call comic book store ask about my order. Blog some more about cloud's cause they are cool. Send bill to cloud company. Call comic book store again. Blog more about clouds.

Man That's the life...

My dream job??? How about getting paid to sleep...But seriously, nowadays with the economy in the tank, a dream job is just having one. As of June 2012 (12.7 million unemployed)

Hehe, I'm just about to hit the one-year mark in SQL programming for a living, and while it's been great so far, the place I work at doesn't quite qualify as my dream workplace. The work is very feast-or-famine in nature, and I just got done with the biggest feast I've had here so far, which sadly only lasted for a month. I really do enjoy programming in SQL and all of the research that goes into learning new and better ways to program, but not being able to put that knowledge to use constantly drags me down a little.

I'd like to be able to work on coding, and be challenged by the work, on a consistent basis. Working steadily towards a goal, incorporating new techniques, and refactoring my work to make it even better is a very fulfilling process to me, and the current office routine of doing a week or two of programming, followed by a month or more of nothing but meetings, is less than ideal.

I certainly do have plans to move on from here at some point, though! I'll be attending Chattanooga's DevLink conference next month, both to gobble up all the information I can as well as trying to network and make some connections that could hopefully develop into a job opportunity in the future. I might not be completely satisfied at this job, but I won't sit around without a plan, either!

Amen Steve. Well put. I need some inspiration morning. When I get home tonight, I'm going to spend at least an hour sending out resumes.
