In one career you have to start from the bottom and slowly go up, slowly but steady and this is what I tried and manage to do in the last couple of years - and I still remember my first job at the LondonRedLight Escort Agency - which was a very interesting experience from a life point of view, as I have really found a lot of interesting people.
Then, after this really strange but at the same time very interesting job I was hired as a junior system administrator for a company that was teaching students foreign languages, so you can understand that I have entered in contact with people from a lot of cultures, people that really wanted to learn some strange languages that were very interesting for their likes.
I can also tell you that working as a junior system administrator I really had to do a lot of helpdesk, I have also to clean the computers (I mean the dust out of those computers) to do a lot of backup and system maintenance activities that were rather annoying.
Later - I become a consultant in IT problems and I understood the fact that as you advance in life a lot of opportunities will appear, and you would somehow be able to allow them to past by you ay you will embrace them - so in this way I really was able to make a lot of friends and also to create a bas eof clients.
But the tip of the mountain was for me to work as a freelancer, to make my own daily program.
