Well, I'm not in it yet. I got tired of the high school drop out life, and My father has been an SMS guy for years, so I've been exposed to the tech side of computers for most of my life. I have been a hobby graphic designer since high school, so I am more familiar with that side of things than hardware. But, I felt that I had a head start with the stuff nonetheless. And I felt that I could get into this profession with less financial investment in education than most other fields. So, here I am giving it my best shot.
Knowing someone on the inside is always a huge help. Unfortunately for me, not only have I not worked in the office environment for over a decade, I have just relocated to a new city, so I literally don't know anyone. My resume and charisma alone are going to have to be enough to get me working.
