So What Do You Do For A Living

well its 4:20am and i have some time before i got to leave for work and i am board so here it goes.........

I work for Budweiser, John D Eiland Distrubiting to be exact. I am 1st shift warehouse. My shift is 5am-2pm. There is only me and the warehouse boss on my shift. It is actually easy. I check in the drivers in the morning, then offload trucks and clean the rest of the time. It sucks because i am usally working alone so sometimes i get board. And there are about 55 people who work in my company. So all in all I like it and the people i work with.

So what do you DO?

Right now I work 3rd shift security. Hardest part about it? Staying awake.

Forunately, I get to start my new job next Monday as a Co-Manager for Wendy's. Used to be in management almost 4 years before working this security job and now its time to go back. Looking forward to it too.

Stolen from the other career thread...

I am an E-5 [Second Class Petty Officer] in the United States Navy. I've been in since September 4th, 2001.

I went to Boot Camp in Chicago, Technical School in Pensacola and my first duty station was in Washington, DC. I am now in Okinawa, Japan getting ready to leave to go back to Pensacola for three years, stationed at NSGA [Naval Security Group Activity].

I joined the Navy to be a CTO, Cryptologic Technician, Communications. Being a CTO, I dealt with communication encryption, modulation and de-modulation, multiplexing/de-mux'ing, and many other critical communication technologies. I work with everything from POTS [Plain Old Telephone System, essentially 56k] to anything from a T1 to an OC192, to Wireless networking and Gigabit networks. I do it all. If it can be used as a communication medium, I can run and administer it.

CTO's in the Navy are being merged with the Information Systems rating, since the Navy thinks that our job's over-lap each other by some 80%, so the need to have two seperate rates is redundant -- so they are taking away the exclusivety of having "CT" in you're rate, something that is envied by many. Not just anyone can be a "CT".

I did not want to become an "IT", forced into something that I did not choose to do. I wanted to remain elite, and the "best of the best". Anyone can be an IT. That's why it's so easy, you are just an...IT. Add Vitamin D10 to IT and you have Idiot. Anyway...

Fast forward to February 6th, 2004. The first batch of selectees of the newest "Information Dominance" rate, the CTN, are selected after a long and formal selection board. Only prior-"CT" rated Sailors can apply for conversion, and must submit a package complete with background information in previous duties and career motives, along with any record of official training, Military or Civilian as well as past Eval's.

I submitted my selection package and was approved April 9th, 2005 to officially be converted as a CTN.

My job "title" is CTN. That is a Cryptologic Technician, Networking.

Now, instead of operating the networks, using cryptographic gear and monitoring status -- I ensure the security of the network. I make sure the good guys stay in and the bad guys stay out, essentially.

I will be working as a "Global Networking Operations Manager" in Pensacola, here is my job description from an official Naval Source:
Quote:
Manages Monitoring, Collecting, and Reporting information and conduct actions in direct support of Computer Network Operations worldwide in support of Navy, National Security Agency, and Department of Defense, national and theater level missions. Duties include Network Target Development, Software Analysis and Development, Access/Attack Operations, Indications and Warning (I&W), Attack Sensing and Warning (AS&W), Defensive Information Operations (DIO), and Blue and Red Team functions in support of Fleet Computer Network Vulnerability Assessments (CNVA).
I just had my real first taste of what a CTN will be doing when I was TAD to Sasebo, Japan for the last two weeks.

We went around and ran vulnerability testing on computer networks on six different ships and 24 shore commands. It was amazing to see how secure, or un-secure networks really are, and how to exploit them. I was working with "Certified Ethical Hackers". That is really what the CTN is going to become, a legal hacker that goes around and hacks into [or tries] to get into Navy and official DoD computer networks. If we know how to get in, we know what to fix, basically.

It was really a learning experience.


Oh, my job? I am a computer geek. I am at work right now. No, I don't own a Mac.
