I'd be interested to know what you do for a living. You don't have to post personally identifiable info, just the general industry you work in.

Do you enjoy it?

Do you have a "job" or a "career"? What do you think the difference is?

I've worked in the world of the Web for the last 15 years and although I started off as a programmer I'm now a company director. Operations Director, in fact. So now I mostly do project management and manage people. It's OK. Definitely a career, I would say.

Computer stuff, sometimes a mix of managery stuff in there but mostly I try to make the computers do the things we want them to do.

I'm a manager working for a large software / services company serving the automotive industry. I manager five teams who do various things related to database maintenance and software installation and training. I also run special projects, which is an "X Files" sounding title for writing the software that we use internally to do our job. So I split my time between meetings, project management, and being a code monkey. I've been there 12+ years now, and I really enjoy it.

Definitely a career at this point. It's a good gig.
And the horse you rode in on...

Nice to hear. I'm looking for the next step on my career now, want to get out of the project management side and go more for business transformation, which is the bit I find most interesting.
