    Hopefully this hasn't been already posted :)

    Who wants to get into IT, but don't know which field to go into?

    CyberCareer's have created an online Interest Quiz to help you out. I did it and found that my interests lay with tech support or programming (something I already know). This may be useful to some who are trying to find out where they want to go :)

    But i like taking things apart and putting them back togther, and comming up with ideas but not nesscersarily putting them to work, enjoy having a laugh and like a challenge. I hate taking notes, remebering the details and working ina set order.....
    So based on that none of the above are jobs i would like! I think somone needs to take another look at the results and how they are arrived at!
