    What level of education did you desire before entering your career?

    What level of education did you desire before entering your career?

    I'd make a poll, but different countries have different names for the stages.

    Did you leave high school and follow your passions?

    Or did you go to the other extreme and remain in university to teach after doing a PhD?

    If you are young, what are your plans? If you are older, what did you end up doing?

    I came out of high school and went right into a university to get a degree. Ultimately a few years later I decided that the program was not going to get me where I wanted to be (I didn't want to stare at a screen and write code all day long) and dropped out of it and pursued some independent certificates on my own (MCSE, CCNA, A+, CC, CL) and started my professional career.

    I've since been a computer technician, trainer, team lead, project manager, service manager, and now am a general manager soon to be business owner. I sometimes wonder what would have happened if I completed the degree I started, but I doubt I would be where I am today if I had not taken a different road. I enjoy my career a lot, it is nice to be able to have direct input into the overall strategy of the company and I've also found I'm pretty good at and enjoy helping others grow their own careers.

    I finished up a B.A in computer science then left school, got a job in a field that didn't require use of a rather specialized degree. I recently got an M.B.A in strategy, and am currently working as a project coordinator/internal project manager. I may pursue a doctorate at some point and was accepted into a doctor of business administration program, but I preferred getting some real world experience before going that route.

    I did not ever plan to have anything more than a bachelor's degree. I worked for 2 years as a sign language interpreter out of high school. Got bored with that (my parents are deaf so this wasn't something new and exciting as it may be for most other interpreters). Got my BA in psych, during that I had some practicums that kind of, in a loose roundabout way, led into my learning of my current career (occupational therapy). My field requires a master's degree for entry level positions/to be licensed..so I have my MS degree. Now I work in my field. I have looked at PhDs for fun but I don't know if I can commit to that financially and if I'm willing to commit to that academically/life-wise. I think I would like to teach and I do enjoy research but..it's pretty intensive.

    If anything, once I have extra money in the future I'll probably just take random classes or get another BA or something. I like learning a little about everything and the level of work at the undergrad level is nice...usually pretty quick to complete. Also, the nice thing about my career is that there are many different settings with all their own systems and info needed and it is fairly easy to switch to a new setting. So that can be kinda neat as well. Definitely sticking to my current setting for a while though.

    I left my study to pursue my passion; owning my own company. Currently I'm an entrepeneur in 3D-printing and I want to develop all kinds of futuristic products; with regard to design as well as functionality. For example; I want to develop a head-band with a number of IR-sensors that dectect human body-heat, connected to several tiny actuators around the head that exert pressure where the IR-radiation is detected. In that way, you can actually *feel* where people are. 6th sense in real life :D.

    I refuse to work for anyone, I have way too much of an ego for that.

    Hmmm, well I worked for a year between high school (the science program) and college to figure out what I wanted to do - in an ice-cream bar of all places (ugh!). I like ice-cream a lot, but not all the drama it causes.

    Anyway, I didn't figure out what I wanted to do, so to avoid working a decade or two scooping chilled delicacies I ended up with a MSc in CehmE. I knew that I didn't ever want a PhD, so naturally I ended up with one, ChemE as well.

    I told my boss yesterday that there is no chance in hell that I'm ever going back to college... (the company I work for is evolving into a software company and us hardware engineers will probably have to look for other jobs or start programming our little hearts out). Looking back at my history, I guess I should send for college application forms ASAP!
