in reply to departing programming, what is the next best step?

Thanks for the responses everyone.

I like the idea of "Changing what is wrong" however as a consultant I am very limited with the amount of change I can inflict upon my client. I am really looking to do something different...

the possible choices I've seen from here are :

  • testing
  • Business analysis
  • Project Management
  • system administration
  • work for the government
  • work in education

    First of all I don't want a drastic salary change (in the negative direction), so we can scratch off education and goverment jobs for now.

    Second of all I am not interested in doing any type of System Administration work. I'm very limited with my linux/unix skills. I'd like to know more though, but I can by no means maintain a system. Plus I hate being on call.

    Lastly testing, business analylsis and project management are left. I am not old enough to really be a PM. And I mean that internally. I am very immature in nature, anyone who meets me thinks I'm 10 years younger than I am, and for 27 that's not a good thing.

    That leaves me with BA or QA. Either sounds good to me. I love the suggestions everyone!! I also feel a lot better about applying for these types of positions.

    Thanks for the tips :)

      C# pains you; C is damp
      C++ stains you; Fortran gives cramp;
      VB ain't lawful, for boy or girl
      Java smells awful; you may as well Perl.

      with apologies to Dorothy Parker...
