I feel that overall it is a vocation, however, there are certainly days - or worse, whole contracts - where I feel it is more of a career. I do feel luck that I only have part of my working life when I feel the drudgery. I suspect that it is a similar experience for many.


I'm with you on this. Overall IT is my vocation, but if I spend too long working on a project, it starts to feel like a career. I think the company I work for plays a part in this as well. I love the company I work for now, but the previous company I was at could fill anything with drudgery.

When my kids ask me what I do I still say 'I work with computers'. It is less complicated that way...lol


That's what I tell most people.

At parties I usually tell people that I am an astronaut. Everyone understands that I am not but I do manage to avoid people asking me how to do something in Publisher 97 - which I didn't even use in the 90s!!!
