Ask [GaS]: Dirty Duty on the Front Lines of IT

Since a large percentage of our readership is composed of IT pros, we figured this article listing some of the dirtiest jobs in IT may be of interest to some of you.

More often, though, dirty IT jobs put people in tough positions — like having to explain to a crew of arrogant geeks why the network can’t be upgraded the same day payroll needs to run; or why you’re not a spammer despite what it says on your business card; or how lying about your company’s products is probably not a good strategy for long-term growth. You may be forced to take the blame for a failed project even when it’s not your fault or to expose wrongdoing at your workplace even if it puts your career at risk.

Dirty jobs never rest, and neither do the people charged with doing them. Be thankful you aren’t one of them. And if you are — well, at least you have a job. Right?

Got any dirty IT jobs stories to share with us? If so, then we’d love to hear all about them in the comments section below (anonymously, of course!).
