I know this isn't a homework question. I apologize. I want to know what kind of career i should look for. I'm upon the completion of an Associate deg of IT/NETWORKING. From univ of phoenix online. I look on a site called dice for IT jobs.
There are all kinds of websites that are "career websites" (monster.com, etc.), but the best one I've found (and keep coming back to) for up-to-date data about various careers and jobs is the Occupational Outlook Handbook:
There are categories linked at the right, and don't forget to go into Tomorrow's Jobs. It's excellent.
Thank you, but i am looking for a more specific answer. im taking my core classes are intro to wlan and intro to lan and i want to know what job will accept me. I was told to try and start off with an isp company and work my way up.
Understanding WLAN and LAN, etc., is good, and if you want a tech job, go for it.
If you want a true career, however, go for something a bit more far-reaching. Becoming an analyst, for example, will give you more options throughout your life than anything more narrow. You should also know programming, I think, and maybe have some training in graphics. In other words, the higher up you aim, the better your life will be in the long run -- your WHOLE life, I mean -- including working with varied and interesting people, marrying someone who is also an interesting person, raising your children well, etc.
I hope you come back to check on responses to your question. Here's a good article from the Boston Globe you should read!
Of course I came back to read your responses. Heh I'm already married to a wonderful woman from Belize. Anyways I'm going to go further to a bs in System Information Security. It has some java and web design in it. The java has me terrified though.
