I'm a telecommunications engineer. I'm working for over 12 years in this field and I still like it. It's not an easy job, I have to know much and do lots of different tasks but it's interesting and well-payed. By the way, I came in telecommunications totally by coincidence. When I graduated from my University and didn't have a clue what to do next, a friend of mine offered me to went to an interview in some small company, which worked in telecommunications. I tried and was lucky to get a job. After that I moved to another company in this sphere and another one after a year. And I still work here.
