I guess we can make that 4 retired copier techs. Sharp and Canon here.
Alos as an electronics tech I've worked on pagers, two-way, point to point microwave, some satellite, cell phones, and cordless phones before heading into the IT field.

I've tried the hospital electronics field (Bio-med) but you don't really get to work on anything their. Minor repairs and PM'*. Everything else getes sent to the factory since the hospital doesn't want the liability a failure can have.

Pharmacists are in HUGE demand. My sister is in the WSU pharmacists program. You are talking 30k sign on bonus and 110k a year, starting out. Great $, but I don't think I have the patience to go through 6+years of school.
yeah no joke, im a multimedia developer for Merck.
The sales representatives (sale medicine and vaccines- pharma stuff) to hospitals,
private clinics and lilttle pharmacy dillies.
These guys are around the age of 23-28. Only requirement is that you have
university completed and well that you can sell also.
These guys got it good, pay is redicously amazing for their age (im 21 ) if you're
a medicine sales rep you only have to be on "field" for a few years make good $$$
and then if you want, you get a desk job training other reps.
sweeeeet uh

They're THAT good, huh? :P
You change developer and fuser units every x number of clicks..it'* kinda like an oil change for the copier. Otherwise, image quality goes downhill.

Being from an IT background, My company doesn't expect me to be out changing rollers, etc. (I'm officially not even supposed to have a screwdriver in my possession.) I just travel around figuring the goofy stuff people do to their network so the copiers can be used as printers and scanners. (And deal with over-inflated egos from wannabee geeks who got their certs from a box of Captn-Crunch.)

As to not seeing my boss for months at a time. It'* about the only perk in a job that requiers about 200 miles per day of driving. Lottsa peace and quiet on the road.

I work for Siemens, specifically the Water Technologies division. To put it bluntly, we make water clean, ultraclean (For Pharma and Chip fab), and just clean enough to put back in the river. (Wastewater Treatment plants)

Official title : Director of Intercompany Business. (I help sister companies work together on big projects)

Boring enough?
