After leaving my last job, I needed something to pay the bills. I enjoyed my time in retail, but wanted to do it in an environment talking about something that I knew about, and that I was passionate about, unlike the fishing/hunting/camping environment that I was in previously. Video games fit the bill for that.
Although I enjoyed what I was doing, I knew this wouldn't be a permanent position for me. I much prefer more of a support role with more emphasis on troubleshooting and finding a workable solution, and less emphasis on sales goals and meeting metrics.
