We could have fixed it, if we had more security access credientials, but either way, we impressed. The position came open, I was offered the job. Me and my coworker/the other developer are going to replace the DBA that left. So, the answer to your question was right place right time. I stepped up in their time of need and knocked it out the park.

I have no Certifications, of my 2 degrees only 1 is directly related to my positions under this company. I started out as a Data Analyst, developing MS Access applications for the company.
A good friend of mines actually stepped into a administrator position, when he worked for this contracting company he would come out and fix computer issues etc... then he would get to know all the people at the company and be social able and what not. He ended up convincing them to hire him. From what I noticed in the industry is small companies will usually hire experience (3-5 and more without degree or certs). 2-3 with certs. Bigger companies are were the degree is really needed.

Me. Well i'll do it once in a while--like for a friends birthday party or some type of monumental celebration.

I hated it to begin with--it was fun early on. Getting together with your boys and #### and I went with my girl so it was always me and her dancing or her dancing with her other girlfriends.

So I was never really looking for a female friend to get to know.

I was always getting into f!ghts, blowing too much money, and getting kicked out or stopped by the cops....

I love the chill life style of being a parent and I wouldn't change that for anything.

but was making like 4-5gs a month for 2+ years just sellin pills and lil herb

graduated HS may 06, was arrested 2 days later for DUI and some other ####, lost my license. No real oppurtunities where I live aside from slave work and a lil retail so I started gettin it in. hustlin hard but i was livin that sheen lifestyle, had a good friend who would hold #### down and id rent a car and just drive for a week or better at a time blowin hella money. My source was plentiful, I never was concerned about NOT making this money because we all know addicts are addicts and money will come. So I'll either be locked up or livin lavish just off some gd pain pills. so this is from 18-21 or 22ish, had a legit ID n everything so i was clubbin fresh outta high school smashin older broads.

then the they replace OC with that bull#### wax unbangable/cant snort #### OPs

but in the meantime i got DUI #2 so basically i was jus chillin at the crib all day xboxin it sellin pills..but they took my license for 2 years

so the pills are obsolete now, the herb just really aint enough $ when youre used to stackkkks

had no license, economy in my town had went to ####, fam never went to church, my dad side dont #### wit each other and moms side all live elsewhere aka no connections

started to get a lil better this year. license back had a whip was workin a lil factory job, wrecked the car (only liability) .. no way to get to work, so i quit instead of getting fired




25 years old, just got another whip so maybe i can make somethin shake in 2013..im thinking barber college my homey down to move away from this #### town and hes already a master so..find a decent sized town get a prime spot and hopefully my skills will get me paid
Shoulda got them ROXYs...lil less than the OCs but the fiends still need it... Don't let ya hustle sleep b!

My last 2 gigs there have been whole floors dedicated to the IT group. Its considered more like a communications, approval type department as opposed to fixing computers. When I mention IT, I mean Data Center level stuff...
