Good question

Just before bed tonight I checked my e-mail. In it was a posting for a Software Development position. Odd that it didn’t list the languages that it required, but whatever.
So I went to the site and applied for the job.
There was a question on the page that you had to answer:
Why have you chosen software development as a profession?Simple question right.
I had no clue as to how I should answer this. Writing ‘Because I’m good at it’ seemed a little….stupid. So I went for the gusto:
It’s a field of work that not only comes easy to me, but it’s somewhat of a creation process. I enjoy starting with requirements and then shaping the code around it. I think of it as the computer equivalent of being a carpenter.Probably won’t get the job, but it’s the first time in a long time that I had to think of why I was pursuing a job in this field.
