Dear Nerd Dad,
After career day at school, my son is disappointed that I didn’t’ become something more interesting than a mid-level security analyst. All he talks about is “Jack’s dad makes video games… Cindy’s mom fixed people’s brains… Why can’t you go to outer space like Jimmy’s uncle?” How can I compete with that?! What is a nerd supposed to do to impress his kids without risking his life on re-entry?
Average Analyzing Analyst
Well, I write these articles and record a podcast for nerds so all jobs can’t be winners, can they?
