Started my own consulting company

Totally off topic, but I need to get the word out. I started an IT consulting company this week. With the... I was going to say downturn, but it's more like complete stop... in the oil and gas market, there are very few opportunities for (an old geezer) a seasoned IT Professional to find real work. So I started my own company.

Neither of us have had real jobs in many years. Since about 2000. Don't miss it. Likely to apply for one pretty soon, however. Could do with a regular paycheck for a few years. So long as it's corporate counsel of some type!

Dog, you be a dog. At 62 I started up my own company again last March. A little scary at times, and my boss can be a prick, but such is life. Good luck. I know one thing, I ride the V to work a lot more than I used to, and sneak in some lunchtime rides when I can.

I have the same boss. What a slave-driver!

I was surprised to not see cyber security as one of your categories.

Good Luck.

That requires like "real" certifications, so I know about it and have been through the "Securing the Human" program at SANS institute, but I do not have the certification.

I was independent for a few years during the great tech bust of 2001 in CA. Oracle apps development and project management. stressful, but never missed a mortgage payment.

And yeah my boss was a slave driver, but at least his interests didn't run too contrary to my own

Best of luck!
