Re: Finding a career



hi
what part of the medical field, it's so broad. I.E. I would think with that kind of vision you could probably be a physical therapist, but probably couldn't be a thoracic surgeon. Even with you're liking of technology... I've been in IT for 13 years, but I've had roles from production support to Software configuration management, and am currently doing problem management. So for example, would you want to be a programmer, or a DBA, or a project manager? there's lots of roles to target.
I work for Bank of America, we have a technical hub in Jacksonville. So if you could give me a bit more on what you want to do (specifics if any) I might be able to better suggest.
Mike
