Interview & Features

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 9, 2007, 3:22 PM


Hey Everyone!

So I have an interview in a couple of days with Intel!  I'm excited about it and have been reviewing all kinds of stuff today, and tomorrow it will continue.  All kinds of great topics such as CMOS logic, finite state machines, CPU architecture, caches, and much more!  Doesn't that sound like a fun, amazing time?  I like it anyway.  As I've been reviewing I'm amazed at how much I still remember, and at the same time amazed at how much I need reminding of.  The good thing is that I just need to be reminded, and not have to learn them again.

Anyway, there's my life update.  But enough about me.

:nerd: By all means, good luck. Or as the geeks say, break a chipset.

Haha, thanks! Although, I've never heard that expression before :confused:

(Neither have geeks. I made it up.
But it gets the point across, n'est ce-pas?)

Hey, sounds like you learned the same job as I did, communication/computer electronics. (Not that I ever finished my apprenticeship....) Good luck with the job interview! *presses thumbs and crosses fingers* :fingerscrossed:

I have a degree in electrical engineering. I had no idea that you were studying the same types of stuff. So how come you never finished your apprenticeship?

Broke down with depression. Too afraid of failing, of not being good enough for the exams and for life in general.
An apprenticeship isn't the same as a degree from college or university though. You work at a company (even get paid a little) and are taught on the job, with some theoretical schooling on the side. So it focuses on the practical side of the job, and you learn to be a technician, not an engineer. On the other hand, one trained electronics technician said this particular field of training is the most sophisticated/difficult job you can learn short of going to university.

Wow, that sounds rough. I hope you've found something that you enjoy doing and are successful at. I kind of have the same worries about failure at times. I always have people saying, "why did you get a degree in that? It's all being outsourced to India and China." But I just tell myself that I enjoyed what I studied, and don't want to work doing something I don't enjoy. I think I'll be fine once I get started.

Well, my photography is the most enjoyable and successful thing in my life. (Outwardly successful. I grew a lot as a person, which is an achievement, an inner success, but not a thing you can point to and call a success to this world.)
It's a bit different kind of worry. You're worrying about the situation, but you're sure about yourself, that you are up to the job, once you find one. And you're pretty courageous, moving to Seattle without a job. And you already got a job interview, so seems your courage is paying off :]

It would be wonderful if it were possible to make a good living off of photography. Like you, it's something that I love doing. But it's more of a hobby, and probably always will be for me.

And I don't think my worry is all that different from yours, although it may not seem so. I am very good at putting on a courageous face for everyone around me. I think it helps me feel more sure of my life when in reality, I'm not sure about anything.
