I've been looking for a job lately. And it hasn't been going well. In fact, it's been going rather poorly.
The job interview from Monday resulted in a nice "Fuck you" letter in the mail today. I hope those assholes get swine flu followed by some nice Super AIDS. Bitches.
But as I look at more jobs on various job websites I find myself wondering "What the hell do Network Administrators actually do?" I mean you've got lots of user's PCs and some servers and various network devices. Once they're setup and plugged in they mostly keep working. If you're spending 8 hours a day 5 days a week at a place I can't picture it being constant pandemonium with shit breaking everywhere and the servers needing constant poking and prodding. Hide in the back and surf the Internet? Sneak out the back and go for coffee?
I'm having a hard time picturing it as anything but either insanely heavy constant work or completely mind-numbingly boring.
Anybody been in this line or work or have a friend who's told them what their day is like?
