TIL in 1998, a 10-year-old girl in Austria was dragged into a car and kidnapped. The case remained unsolved until she knocked on someone's door in 2006 saying: "I am Natascha Kampusch." She had just escaped the secret cellar of a local technician that abused her for 8 years. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nat…
In 2003, a technician forgot to log that he had removed 24 bolts during the maintenance of the NOAA-19 satellite, causing the satellite to fall over and costing $135,000,000 in damages.

GF and I have COVID. Heater went out, technician can't come out due to quarantine. Decided to try and fix it myself. Tripped over a pipe and fell through the ceiling. Anyone need a handyman?

[WP] A technician pulls a headset off of you and asks you if you liked the VR. You panic, and he calmly says that your whole life was a 2 minute VR experience to show you what being an average person would be like. You, stunned and afraid, ask, "Who am I, then?" He stares in complete disbelief.

This is the world's tallest sandcastle, built in Germany in 2019. It's 17.65 m (57 ft 11 in) tall and It took a team of 12 sculptors and 8 technicians 3.5 weeks working 8 hours a day to complete it.
Lol professional technicians
Passed my Technician/General yesterday!
Inspiration: $45k to $121k in 4 years (Technician to Engineer, boomerang hire)
Just wanted to give people some inspiration. Between 2015 and 2019, I did the following:
- Hired as a technician at $45k/yr
- Worked a few years in that role
- Left for a totally different role at a different company
- Came back to the first company as an engineer at $110k/yr w/ $11k annual bonus and $4k signing bonus
- Made a good impression as a technician, worked my tickets really well, good at customer service, helped my coworkers, studied a lot and earned a few certificates
- Left on good terms!
- Lots of homelabbing (shout out to /r/homelab) - diving in, spending a ton of personal time learning
Trying to be somewhat vague to remain anonymous, but my new role involves cloud engineering, infrastructure as code (IaC), and coming up with creative solutions to process data. My technician role involved troubleshooting networking equipment for customers.

I apologize for the crappy editing. New to GIMP...image manipulation is not my strong suite. If anyone knows of an easy way to obfuscate and highlight (the way I can with Greenshot or ShareX editors in Windows) in Gimp or another Linux app (I'm a recent convertee and chose Manjaro), I'm all ears!
Just rolled into the shop. First technician job at 17
Today it was me who rolled into the shop. Got offered a position as a T4 Technician at a Honda dealership for way more money I was making at my last two shops.

most technical thing a helpdesk technician should know
I am an L2 helpdesk technician, about 5 years experience.
I recently had a job interview and the interviewer completely flummoxed me by asking what the most technical thing I know is. I was stuck, as I realised that the best IT skills I have (mainly some decent knowledge of M365 stuff + some Windows server stuff) was not going to get me very far.
So I'm interested. L2 techs, what is the most technical thing you know?
And for everyone else, what do you think is a realistic skill for a L2 that would be complex, and make you stand out?

If they made Technician to include moves up to 70 BP, what would be the best moves around?
Volt-Turn, Knock Off *shudder*, Sucker Punch, and the Slash variants sound scary, but who and what would become really good?

Academic Scientist looking for industry position as a technician in the EU. My CV is not working, please help
Been lurking in this sub for a while now, and finally get to share that it is I that rolled into a professional shop. From carpenter to auto technician. If you ever feel like you are stuck, im 26 and just switched my whole career. Its hard, and it seems never ending. But we all have it in us.
I'm an air quality scientist / field technician with a BS in Physics, getting an MS in MechE– how can I better steer my career into an engineering discipline?
I need a little bit of advice regarding the question in the title, but here's the context: I have a BS in Physics and have been working for nearly two years now at a small environmental technology company as an analyst / field engineer / technician. We make and implement optical sensing analyzers to measure air quality. My job is a little hard to explain since it's a bit multi-faceted, but I'm looking to pivot my career towards something more focused in engineering. Recently I started an MS in Mechanical Engineering part time. The program is online, but nothing about the degree indicates it was once I finish it down the road. I am self-funded, I receive no assistance from my employer.
I'm interested in a number of different fields (power generation and distribution, renewable energy, automotive industry, etc.) but I'm worried about my chances of switching into an engineering role, since I've had no luck applying to jobs and am now having doubts about what will happen after I finish my degree. Do engineering employers take people with tangential experience for entry level roles? Have I made a mistake starting an MS in something I don't have a great deal of previous experience in?
Any advice or anecdotes would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
EDIT: Really surprised by the support this post is getting– I really really appreciate all the comments, thanks again!
Getting twanded tomorrow for the first time since TTC... so what’s the etiquette here? Just give the technician a handful of these afterwards, or??
I have been working as a NG technician for 7 months and just realized I am a walking stereotype.
I am literally a stereotypical national guard guy, what the fuck. I bought handguns, cigars and a motorcycle, I go to the gym every day and never make any progress, and I go to sleep at like 9pm every night. I drive a 2015 toyata tundra. Me and my coworkers all have a clingy, slightly insecure, slightly funny looking girlfriend. One time my girlfriend and my battle buddy's girlfriend picked us up on the same day and they were like carbon copies. Fucking scary.
Now I just need to fall off my motorcycle and get fat, then I will have achieved full NG wizard status.
