You worked hard to get your degree and after graduation you were ready to dive right into a career doing something awesome…
But a few months stuck in cubic hell is all it took to realize your career dream isn’t turning out like you expected.
In fact, your job sucks! And you dread going to the office everyday.
Nothing about your career has turned out the way you planned and the worst part is you’re not even close to earning a salary that can pay back all the student loans you took.
You know, I feel for you, but I really feel more for the guy or gal who’s been stuck for years. 🙁
If this is how you’re feeling then you’re stuck in a career rut, alright – and I want to help you.
I can totally relate to how you feel, I’ve also been stuck in a rut, and in a moment I’ll list a few crazy cool careers that you can check out and a system that just may save you.
That’s right – I want to give you some hope – and maybe point you in a new direction.
- Have you heard about virtual reality? Not just the goggles – the multi-billion dollar industry.
- Or artificial intelligence (A.I.)? Not just the computer that plays chess but the multi-billion dollar industry.
- How about learning algorithms? Yup, it’s another multi-billion dollar industry.
- Or genetic engineering? Yup – ditto!
If you follow my blog, then you’ve seen that lately I’ve been doing research on the technologies listed above and there are bunches of new companies starting up in these cool fields. And get this, many of these startups are looking for smart people like you to help.
How does that sound so far?

Since the beginning of the year I’ve written about virtual reality jobs, artificial intelligence jobs and SAN engineer jobs. Do any of these opportunities sound interesting to you because there are jobs waiting for smart people to fill them.
Go ahead and read my articles and you’ll be amazed what I’ve uncovered.
