Easy all, I have been an IT engineer for about 6 years. Im sick to death of computers! Back in the days in school my best / fav subject was CDT, esp. metal work. Working on milling machines / lathes, machining parts ect.
I love to work on technical things with my hands, examples being completely rebuilt a Yamaha R6 from the frame up, mostly rebuilt a gsxr 750. Built a Raptor ect ect....
I have a couple of little saying - Chris I'll fix it! & Give me the tools and I will build you anything!
What I need to know is what some job titles to look out for because IT support is going to drive me to suicide anyway soon.
Problem is I do quite well out of IT & moving to a new job with limited experience is surely going to result in a cut in money. What sort of salary could I expect & would my IT experience be of much benefit?
I have even given serious thought to starting my own custom machining business but its a long time since I have had a chance to use any serious tools and it was before the days AutoCAD running the mill lol... Also I wouldn't have a clue how much to charge people for work, how complex a job I could take on, what the setup costs would be (I know a lot!)
I need some job satisfaction bad!
Anyone got some pointers for someone sick of computer support?
