So it turns out, that my job is incredibly slow paced during the winter months. And even during the busy months, it's still pretty bad from what i'm told. So I've decided to study at work and take some certification exams down the road and get my company to pay for them, since I can't concentrate on playing Pang while waiting for something to do. (If I ever get comfortable doing that, then fuck my future. Unless I get some java certs and develop 3D Pang! )
I've got ideas of what route i'll be going down, but i'm interested in hearing what people in different fields think of the certs that they have that apply to their careers. To see if its worth doing in the first place I suppose.
Well... I'm a certified Medical Technologist by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists. Which means I get to sign my name, "Roger *, MT (ASCP)" Doesn't mean a whole helluva lot outside the acadamia world. But I have to have it in order to have my job as a Med Tech.
Probably doesn't help you out any
