    For next two days I'm a Train Conductor, after that I'm not sure. Taking a break and having at least one holiday before deciding what to do next.

    Oh @Chuck2009x ...this is calling your name... I've been curious for awhile. (I'm always curious about the background on one of my best sources for information...Geogran and JeJas already said industries/former industries....but I haven't seen any hints on yours!)

    You said you listening to some legal radio program awhile back....so I've been thinking lawyer....but I'm still so curious! (No, you don't have to answer, but I had to weasle in an attempt to get you to spill the beans!)

    Thank you so much for letting me be nosey...and I am even more impressed.

    I fell into recruiting....but found what I absolutely love in tech recruiting....because of the people I get to work with...developers, DBA's, embedded engineers...all the super brainy people that work on the stuff sci-fi movies have always been based on. (Our tech now was only a fantasy not too long ago, and developers and engineers are the backbone!)

    Thank you so much for sharing...in my book, that is leaps and bounds MORE impressive than what I had thought! :clap::thumbsup::clap:
