Congrats Dave.

Such a different world we live in now though. People change jobs several times throughout their careers and it's quite normal.

That’s certainly impressive in this day and age. Congrats Dave. What do you do if you don’t mind sharing?

Hope they throw you a big party and give you something nice!

I am Office Manager/CAO at a roofing and sheet metal company.

My plan was to work here for a bit and then go to school to become an accountant.

Didn't end up going to school, just stayed here and worked my way up.

I make a nice living now and work with a great bunch of guys in the office (6 of us altogether).

I wouldn't change a thing.
