Time in the testing trenches has earned you a break working on the phones. The hours are more regular, but the work isn't very entertaining. Keep up on the latest technology trends, and watch out for those nifty bugs that slipped through the cracks. Keep your customers happy...

Level 4: Hacker
Skills needed: Programming 4 and Video Gaming 4
Answering to the world was for the birds, so causing trouble on your own time has all the advantages you've been seeking. Keep your mind sharp so you can infiltrate government databases and eventually hone your skills to go after those international banks.
Level 5: Security Consultant
Skills needed: Programming 5 and Video Gaming 5
Getting caught breaking into that government database had you on the brink of incarceration. Fortunately, the SimCitySoftware Company needs someone to help protect their Intellectual Properties from people with just your kinds of skills, so they'll let you out on probation if you agree to beef up their electronic security. Keep your creative and logic skills high to outsmart your former friends' assault on your new company's firewall.
Level 6: Game Designer
Skills needed: Programming 6 and Video Gaming 6
Good thing you've gotten so creative of late - turns out your ideas for games caught the eyes and ears of the Powers That Be. Now the pressure's on for you to deliver a game script that will capture the public's interest, as well. This also means that you get to work nights, since that's when the engineers are at the office.
Level 7: Internet Entrepreneur
Monday - Friday

Take your brilliant ideas out into the e-commerce world on your own. Hours are ridiculously long, the work is physically and mentally exhausting, but the payoff could be big at the end of the road.

Level 8: Software CEO
Skills needed: Programming 8 and Video Gaming 8

Level 9: Venture Capitalist
Skills needed: Programming 9 and Video Gaming 9
All those stock options paid off - now that you've gotten more liquid, you can pick and choose which struggling little startups will earn your magnanimity, as well as the prestige of your name as a backing for their work.
Level 10: Information Overlord
Skills needed: Programming 10 and Video Gaming 10
Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, the hours eased up, the public became both worshipful and insufferable, and you have all the answers that everyone else in technology is seeking. You can become increasingly reclusive, bulking up your home security system, and taking lots of phone calls, but the money just keeps rolling in.
I am working on the updated one, which has more realistic wages.
