Weekend Discussion

Friday February 25th, 2000

Most of our readers have jobs doing computer-related work. Not all of those readers find their jobs enjoyable. If you could have your ideal job in a computer-related field, what would it be? If you are in your ideal job, tell us why it is ideal. Related to that, how many hours a week do you work, and do you think it's reasonable? What would you consider a reasonable work week? We're interested in getting an international cross-section, so if you live outside the US, we'd love to hear from you as well.

I'm only finishing the Finnish equivalent of cellege and (hopefully) beginning my studies at the Helsinki University of Technology, but for the time being I think I've got about the best job I could have.

Me and three of my friends are going work at the Media Centre <> for the Helsinki Board of Education as soons as we finish our final exams. We'll be working on a kind of student forum to pair with the official net school <> . We have a lot of freedom to design thing the way we like and both the working environment and atmosphere are good.

We're not payed as much as some of my friends, but this is something we all want to do and we get to do it together, so its definetely worth it. And it will really look good on a CV too :)
