Just got scouted for an apprenticeship in plumbing which isnt my prefered trade but still it is my openess to any union or trade which got me selected with an incomplete requirement list just a few hrs after remaking my indeed account and uploading my resume though my age had a lot to do with it im experienced and that means they want my lifetime worth of knowledge.

Who else is in the trades

I'm not in a trade. However, I am in the interview process for a factory job that has unbelievably awesome benefits. Because of my experience in manufacturing, I was snatched up within hours of applying. It will be the most money I have ever made in my life.

Not really, but my hobby is programming and I always subscribed to professional publications for info. Because of that, I repeatedly received very, very nice letters from headhunters hoping I would be receptive to a new job.

It really made me think about changing my whole career.

Perhaps programming is different, but I've always been told that the easiest way to suck joy out of a hobby is to do it for a living. I have friends that work on vehicles for a living and working on their own vehicles is like bringing work home. On the other hand, I have friends that are programmers with side projects such as game dev and they're doing just fine. Just something to keep in mind.

My thoughts as well. That's why I never pursued those offers. In any case, I'm sure if I was hired as a Unix/Linux expert I would immediately be required to become certified in all things microsquat. I despise Microsoft intensely.

Given proper specs and documentation, programming is easy task for relatively low paid Indians.

Given vague and inconsistent list of what is wanted - which constantly changes - one pretty much needs to enjoy programming enough to do it as a hobby to write working software. Relatively low paid work for nerds.

If you are interested of a career in IT get a degree in system design and management and leave actual programming to nerds and Indians.

Writing the specifications so an Indian intern can write the program is just as much work as writing the program yourself. Unfortunately, management never realizes this.

Well it is for Prolog, not so much for c.

Figuring out what the system is supposed to do, designing the system components and interfaces and writing the specs for it all is the hard part. And AI is not going to replace that job any soon. I'd expect implementing provably correct software components from specs may be in reach of AI at some point. (Like faster than viable fusion power.)

I've been a machinist since highschool, I hear plumbers make good money.
I've never struggled or stressed with finding work and I don't think I ever will.

Congrats, I just prefer to be an independent contractor. I work two big jobs a year and I'm off for the rest.

It doesn't always work out that way, but so far I've never been hurting for money. Not like the dark times where I had a *shudder* "boss." Or whatever you call unqualified asshats who tell you what to do.

I'm kind of a jack of all trades, so I'm never really out of work. I can fix your toilet, build you a computer, or rebuild your car. Long as it pays, I got da skills ya need.

hell I can build you an industrial extruder machine if you don't mind Chinese parts, and turning off the security cams while I work for uh "safety checks"

To add, if you insist of being a programmer I'd suggest field of high integrity software. That's where quality is more important than cutting corners to save time and cost.
Bugs in safety critical software can kill people. Exiting, isn't it?

If you count truck driving, I am
Takes about 3 weeks of schooling and a medical test
Don’t let smaller trucking companies screw you out of good wages if they drive nationally. National competition deserves national compensation
Larger companies are also looking to screw you but that’s a trade off because you need the experience. NEVER drive half assed. Your safety is never worth the profits of a company.

Owner/operator is the best money but you need to do more work including scheduling your own loads and routes.

It’s a job best spent with your partner on the road. Otherwise you could spend weeks alone on the road and that just eats at your soul.

My neighbor across the street was half owner of a big rig. He and his partner often worked on the truck there. Thankfully, they never tried to park a trailer on our street.

He and his partner always took turns using the rig. That let one of them to be home at the time.
