The Career Discussion Thread
Because what good's all the education without somewhere to use it? Some people get the benefit of doing something they love or can geek out over and for others it's just a means to an end.
I'm a Quantity Surveyor, I do accounts for construction sites, I buy and negotiate packages of work. I've done this for nearly 10 years now and I'm feeling stagnant with it. What I'd really like to get into is Building Information Modelling (BIM) using these new high tech software packages. The company is not the best at embracing this stuff but I've asked our BIM expert how to get into it and I've looked up some expensive independent training courses in London. If I can get my chartership it could open more doors too.
I hope I'm not shit talking because my current job makes me work away and I'm hoping for marriage and having kids in the next few years.
I wish my work ethic was better, I can be so lazy and procrastination is my tragic flaw.
What's your career been like? Does it fit your imagination? What's next?
