I had so many expectations for my life, after graduating from high school. I planned on getting a job right after graduation and not going to the university. I didn’t want to waste any more time in the classroom and putting out a lot of wasted money. I was able to get a good job and I also found a course that I could take after work that taught computer programming. I had no idea at the time that this class was going to lead to a career that would last the rest of my life. I soon found out that I had a talent for computer program writing. When a friend of mine told me that a local security company was looking for someone to install their security cameras, I jumped at the job. I had my foot into a security company and I wasn’t going to let loose. I have now worked for this company for almost fifteen years. I am no longer installing security cameras but I am designing and writing the programs for security systems. I meet with my clients so I can get a good assessment of their needs and their schedules. I then design the program and tailor it to their exact needs. I provide their schedule to our monitoring department and I call them often so I can make any adjustments as they are needed. My patrons know that they are a top priority to me and they don’t mind spending the money to have their security systems installed. Now, when I look back at when I was taking classes on computer programming, I made the wisest decision of my life and I am loving my life and my job.
