I stumbled into it like we all do in reality.
I wanted to work with computers...programming (nope. too boring), operations (ditto boring), or managing (ehhh...nope).
I had job after job as a computer operator and honestly hated it.
I wanted into the Department of Defense, working for the Federal Government (better pay, better raises, better retirement, better benefits, overall, better), so I started applying for anything.
Jump forward a few years and I got a job as a Medical Support Clerk doing Managed Care, Database Management, Data management, serious number crunching. Serious. Most people hated it because it was so tedious and so much number crunching. Me?
I loved it.
Today I have a Master's in Health Care Administration and am working on my Doctorate in the same field.
I literally stumbled into it.
