I am at the tender age of 20, it's a pity one can't say 20 and a half, but I've been told I'm too grown up for that ^_~<P>~Sarah Beth

Jim asked...
Your class??? What do you teach?<P>I'm an associate lecturer in Internet and Media studies....I'm also pretending to be a diligent ph.d student inbetween teaching commitments and publishing deadlines *lol*<P>ahh, but I love it. I love teaching...amazing, when you're a student, you don't think teachers work that hard....but when you're a teacher, you find yourself thinking about how to explain things and deliver concepts so EVERY student 'gets it.' Its so satisfying when they go DING and you can almost _see_ the little lightbulb go on over their heads. <P>this advertisement for teaching was paid by...*laughs*<P>anyone else have an interesting/satisfying job? I've always wanted to do this, but I love hearing how others found their vocation.<P>ttys

I'm 23, still not Bachelor of Computer Science, and working full time as a web developer.<P>22 and a PhD student. Sounds completely way out to me. But it seems there's a difference of culture there... Friend of mine just did his Master's thesis a few weeks ago, and he's 28. The youngest PhDs over here are, what, 26 or so. And that's cutting it. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"> But well. If you know your stuff, who am I to argue?

I build what we call our Knowledge Base. When an agent gets a problem they don't know how to fix the use the KB to find an answer.

In chronological age, I'm 25 but most people seem to think I'm older. Because I use to work several jobs at once, my resume makes me look much older than I am.<P>Regards,

</i><P>yes, well, I'm the exception rather than the rule. I'm the youngest in the ph.d group by nearly a decade. I'm even younger than the 'kids' starting their masters this year. Like I said, this is all I ever wanted, so I've done the most direct route to where I want to go.<P>*shrugs*<P>lots of people think I'm mad....but I'm doing what I love, and earning good money besides, so who cares what they think <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif"><P>and when I'm 25 and a doctor...or thirty and an associate professor, I'm sure they'll come round to my way of thinking *lol*<P>I'm actually looking forward to going to conferences in America and Europe -- I just hope they don't hold my age as a measure of my worth as a researcher...<P>are we COMPLETE OT yet? *grynz*<P>Rei

In real years I'm 25, I've been told I look older, but I know for a fact that I act younger.<P>As for a satisfying job - I love my job as a Computer Programmer (all the way up until the deadlines), but I probably get more satisfaction from being the neighbourhood computer geek. Nothing feels better than being able to sort out a problem a friend has been having trouble with.<P>Rei - Wow, sounds like you're really getting what you want out of life. Don't ever let anyone make you believe those being mad claims.

I respect that. Big time. Couldn't do it myself, that's for certain. I've set myself the goal of having a Master's by age 30.
PhD at 25. Impressive.

Oh how I admire and respect those of you with the patience to teach, I taught a small class of 6 and 7 year olds this past year and those little ones wore me out something terrible, and that was only an hour a week. I'm a full time student right now myself and I am very thankful for my profs, and I know how difficult it must be. <P>And since we seem to also be on the subject of occupations, I am currently detailer/merchandizer for an auto parts store, and whilst in school, I work as a data entry tech and an actress. <P>------------------

25 here, but have felt ancient since about 19... Being old doesn't scare me much, I'm not a big fan of the follies of youth. I'm working as a "graphic artist" which would be fufilling, except that I'm actually more of a web editor who has the only scanner in the office, thusly making me "Hey, scan this"-girl. Not to jump on the teacher's bandwagaon, but I got to T.A. a class in beginner's HTML here at the University of Kentucky and would really really like to try my hand at having my own class. One of my friends put it so eloquently: "I wanna teach so bad I can already smell the sweat of nervous students as I crack the whip of education." ;D

I happen to be 25.
My current job is as a Sales Associate for a local chain Convienience Store. Which is more work that I at first imagined, and that's made me love it more than I thought. :-)<P>I previously hail from doing Tech Support, IT Support and IS Managment, as well as freelancing contracts for Building and Delivering systems/servers and related equipment to home/small business and even some Corporate accounts. I'm now only upholding the Freelance portion, having decided to step outside of the Tech Support community, not because I feel over qualified, but because I feel the current market in may area doesn't pay enough respect to the people it hires. Hence my current profession. So long as it involves people and helping them out however/whenever I can, it'll be a job I'm more than happy working for. Until the people running the business screw it up, that is. :-)
