Computer Science, specifically Computer Programming.

I'm about to start my second year of community college, and I can safely say that programming is a very difficult but rewarding activity. Being able to say "Yeah, my code works!" after HOURS of writing and debugging... that feeling of accomplishment is simply indescribable.

Computer Information Systems. Though I want to switch to Political Science, there lies the concern what I'd do with my degree in it.

I'm working on my bachelors degree in Information Technology. Part of me wants to switch, but I really don't want to tbh. I love technology too much.

I'm working for my undergrad in Biology. Hopefully after that I'll focus on Zoology or some other sub-field of bio. I have to set my career choice in stone.

I'm a housekeeper in a gated retirement community. Technically I now work for an outside agency, but I'm paid directly from clients and my boss is part of the community's administration.

Word of advice: If you have the option to not work for an agency, then don't work for an agency. It's absolutely terrible. Rant below.

Spoiler:
They try to middle-man every single ordeal and it's completely pointless. If I have to call in sick, then I have to call them so that they can call my boss (who lives 2 apartments over from me), except they only make calls during their business hours and I'm on the clock before they are so by the time it reaches my boss's ears I'd already be an hour late.

When we originally started working for them, we had to go through this whole dog-and-pony show which pretty much had us re-applying for the jobs we currently held. The amount of paperwork was incredible. Not only was there the pile that the community gives employees to sign (which mainly consists of nondisclosure and liability agreements), but there were two more stacks. One was the agency's own paperwork that was pretty much 25 pages of rules and regulations that were vague enough to fit any workplace and said "Do these things so you don't give us a bad name", and the other was a bunch of medical-based forms.

The medical forms were strange at first because it was just a bunch of papers that we had to sign in order to get various shots and immunities (tuberculosis, hepatitis B, etc.), but there was this one really weird page that outlined "workplace dangers". It said

>If you see a red can, that can is full of blood.
>If you see a red bag, that bag is full of blood.
>If you see a yellow bag, that bag is full of chemo stuff.
>If you see a blue bag, that bag is full of laundry.
>If you hear "Code Orange" over the PA system, that means there's a fire. Clear all hallways and exits.
>If you hear "Code Red" over the PA system, that means something involving someone's heart. Clear all hallways and exits.
>If you hear "Code Blue" over the PA system, that means someone's dying. Clear all hallways and exits.
>If you hear "Code Pink" over the PA system, that means someone's abducting a baby. Block all hallways and exits.

This was all a bit strange because we work in private residences and there isn't a single PA system outside of the clubhouse (not to mention all of the residents are retired elderly people so there are no babies to abduct). Turns out that entire third stack, which made me consent to getting TB and hep B shots, was for hospital employees. The agency figured that since we worked around old people, we'd need to live in fear of airborne diseases and coming into contact with large quantities of unprotected blood. Naturally, this proved that they have no idea what they're doing.


So remember, kids: Unless the agency you're applying to is specialized and not some two-bit, jack-of-all-trades piece of garbage, don't even bother with it because they don't care about you as an individual employee.

I'm going in for Computer Information, but we'll see if that sticks around. I'm not sure if I'm smart enough for it, and my mind has slowly been turning towards the medical field. So. I chose other in the poll.

I've been making pizza for about four years now.

I don't have a college degree nor do I plan on getting one anytime soon, because I'm poor and tuition and loans are too ridiculous these days. So I'm probably going to be stuck in foodservice for a loooong time. But honestly I don't really mind right now. I like my job.

I was working in Barclays fraud department for about 6/7 months until last month when I had to quit due to getting no shifts.
I now work doing the same job but for Lloyds TSB instead :p

It's a great job purely because of the idiots who we catch trying to lie their way into someone else's account

What kind of degree did you get?

Right now I'm majoring in graphic design at community college, but I want to be a web designer / developer and they don't have very many classes concentrated on that. I'm thinking of just dropping out of that college and moving across the country to go to school at a pretty focused technical school of sorts, where I feel that I'd be better placed and better educated/prepared. Though I also think that web design doesn't really need a degree since I have a friend getting paid pretty well with just a HS diploma as a web designer and was self taught.


@poll voters: ummmm you guys do realize that most of your majors (if you have one) falls under those four categories Cassino put into his poll, right? Like if you're a graphic design major, you're in the Liberal Arts and Sciences college. You're not other.

I believe Maths also falls under Liberal Arts and Sciences but I was like **** THAT MAN, I'M NOT PUTTING MYSELF IN THE SAME CATEGORY AS ALL THAT OTHER STUFF. WHY THE **** DOES MEDICINE GET ITS OWN CATEGORY?

Oh right, I'm currently an IT consultant but I'm thinking of switching careers and becoming an engineer.

I just graduated high school, so I figured it'd be somewhat fitting to post now. =P

Nothing finalized yet, but I'm thinking about perusing Psychology!
