    I was wondering if anybody out there had experience working with a startup. I'm looking for an opportunity to help build my skills/expertise in the IT field. I have a lot of responsibilities at my current job, but it's been repetitive tasks and I don't get to work with the hardware as I'm a systems engineer. I feel like a huge part of learning for my job is configuring the hardware and we pay another company to do most of the dirty work. I feel like a startup would be a good opportunity, but could also be fairly risky. Just looking for suggestions on what to look for, etc.

    A little bit about myself: been in the field for about 6 years working mostly with Microsoft technologies and mainly on web development (IIS, .NET, SQL). I don't develop, but have some knowledge of it and know how to do some scripting. I'd like to get myself involved in different areas, but my manager won't give me the opportunity. Any advice is much appreciated.

    You'd be amazed how highly people value attention to detail.

    There is an entire sub-forum dedicated to Businesses and Careers. I'm sure your skills are valuable, but seriously dude, even a few seconds of research would have put you in the right place.

    My apologies. I posted in here last time and got a huge slew of responses so I didn't even bother checking for a specific forum. I'll move my thread there. I'm usually good about these things, but hey no ones perfect. Thanks,
