RDSchaefer - Professional Profile



My title should really be Technical Consultant. I've been in IT for almost 30 years. I started out as a Mainframe Applications Assistant Programmer at American Greetings Corp. In 2 years I made Senior Programmer.
Eight years and 4 languages later (COBOL, BAL, FORTRAN, and PL/1 - plus misc. like JCL and Easytrieve) I moved over to System Programming & Support. Along the way I taught myself PC C, Pascal, Assembler, and VB as well as the hardware knowledge to got with them.
Five years later, I moved over to Desktop Support and Prime System Administration. That Desktop title was misleading as it covered everything from the HW/SW to the NW, Inventory Control, and Security.
Two years at 3rd-Lvl support and it was time to move on. National City Bank hired me as an In-House Consultant and I stayed there until 2010 when PNC from Pittsburgh bought NCC and eliminated my whole department. Currently, still unemployed.
