    Software Engineer for Cisco Systems! You can do this job walking or not walking, as long as you can type and have a brain you can do the job.

    Sales here. Occasional travel. Past employer fired me due to sci (not in so many words, but lumped me into a reorg)

    Current employer seems fine but currently having some serious issues and seeing a lot of docs and a lot of testing. Will find out quickly how they really are. Keeping my fingers crossed. Missed quota last month, 77% but was 300% the previous. In sales though you are as good as your last sale, history doesn't count.

    I was injured my senior year in highschool. I had a c4/5 break with c5/6 function. I had planned to go in the military so of course I could not pursue that afterwards. I spent a few years going to college not knowing what I was going to do. I eventually discovered that I was pretty good at computer programming...and I liked it! So I pursued that as a career and have been working full time now for 25 years. It is a good occupation for a quad as it is mostly typing but you do have to have a talent for it. On the down side a lot of these jobs are now going off shore.

    C5/6 here. I work for Oregon's Department of Human Services as a case manager for seniors and people with disabilities. I used vocational rehabilitation to set me up with Dragonspeak for my job, and they are also in the process of the outfitting my van with hand controls. As soon as that is done, I will be able to do protective services investigations and case management for people in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. My employer was really good about holding my job when I was injured-- it would not have been very PC to do otherwise, considering where I work!
