Come work with us!
I love my job right now. Not what I ever thought I'd do but it's fun most days. I have a great team (even though we just got shuffled for the third time this year again). There's always things to learn, new software. Been learning how to load some of the geophysics stuff lately, which is a branch out for me. I think I would be bored if it was traditional database stuff where you load the same type of data all day every day, but it varies so much from cataloging our physical samples to managing our databases to problem solving to making maps and presentations. I can never tell you what I will be doing any given week beyond the basic weekly duties and reports I compile and send out. I also really enjoy being able to work with other people and be social (since I'm not so much outside of work).
I never thought I'd like a cube job at all. Some days it sucks but most days it's pretty interesting.
