More than 2 years after latest post: my daily job is....

Well, after a technical degree in engineering (for the Dutch members: HTS WTB) I started in the refrigeration world, where I was employed for over 22 years at different companies.
During these years I did some educational work: I teached technicians in Refrigeration design during almost 20years in the evenings (1 evening per week, 26 times a year).

After getting bored more and more I switched for a few years to sustainable engineering (does is exist?), then to a Mental health organisation and since august 2017 I'm in education again. I'm teaching in Steam and sustainable energy on a MBO near Rotterdam.

Ah, like me you are a mechanical (werktuigbouwkunde) engineer (ingenieur). And, as you studied at an HBO, you're an ing. and not an ir. Everybody knows more letters are better

An interesting topic of discussion would be how the Covid crisis has affected each of us.
During this period, I changed several jobs. From some leaving on from my own initiative, from others being fired because of the crisis.

But at the same time, the crisis was my chance to start from zero, and I started a food business.
I was lucky to receive a grant from the U.S government for small businesses and that was all I needed to enter the market. This grant was what produced the turning point in my life, because otherwise I would have returned to work for someone else. If any of you also have a small business, or are planning to start one, to check the grants available in the US, click here!
So my job is called entrepreneurship

@Addy & Harm, here also a mechanical engineer (ing) with an additional grade in Industrial Product Design. Worked at Thales, Philips Home Care and lately at Sensata (16 years already), an automotive company, managing the process engineering. Always have been tempted to pick up (part-time) teaching. Hobby's are typical for engineers I think, thinkering on lenses an building, servicing and repairing mechanical watches. Oh, and windsurfing ofcourse and subsequently fixing the gear I damage

For 24 years I was an upper level manager at a Fortune 500 company in the states. Covid was brutal on my work home life as business was booming for us and I decided to retire. Took a job in construction material sales jan1 2021 in Florida were I live. Proved to be a great decision as so many people are moving here and housing is still booming. I have more business than I know what to do with. Although I have a computer science degree I never used my best skill is working with people. I am really good at connecting with everyone whether it was my bosses or co workers or associates I managed in my previous career or establishing relationships with builders in my current job.

A technical degree in computer science, Chris? Are you another engineer?
