What are you doing now:
The 1st 8 years with Intel, I operated software-controlled wafer sorting equipment and microprocessor final quality control testing and inspections. Also, performs complex troubleshooting and repair of microchip testers and semi-automatic robot silicon wafer probers. Now I work directly in Fab32 as a quality control defect metrologist. inspecting wafers (at the sub-micron level) as they are being made. Its pretty intense, highly technical and detail-oriented work but I like mental challenges and its a living.
