I work in IT . I am a Network Technician at a library. I am in this field because I love computers and electronics. Work is much easier and a lot of fun when your career is what you like to do.

i work in IT, but i dont particularly like the business side of technology. i dont want to administer Exchange, or work in DNS or AD. But, of course, i have to. i enjoy the consumer side way more.

Trying to get into IT because I love technology. I'm thinking about getting my Network+ and maybe even Novel certs. Currently have my IC3, but that's easy stuff.


Not sure If I would put too much in to Novell unless there is a place you want to work at really bad that still uses a lot of Novell.. Just my two cents.. If you get hired on, you will learn 100x more in two weeks than you would in a class room.. Certs are good, especially for getting that first job.. but I would focus more into Cisco (that is where the money is at) and VmWare..

Yes, I work in IT and I love technology.. I am a system admin and have a love/hate relationship with my job.. I'm sure every System Admin from middle to large companies will understand.. lol

I'm an Electrical Engineer by trade, but I do IT(ish) consulting on the side. It's relaxing and fun to work with clients.
Definitely love electronics. A big reason for becoming an Engineer was so I could afford my gf and plenty of toys for myself. :rofl:

Thanks for the tip. I appreciate it. :) The place my uncle works at uses Novel Netware 6.5 (if I'm not mistaken). The pay is pretty good there and they have a guy going out so I told him to put a word in for me. I was thinking about getting my Cisco, but I just wan't sure. I'll look into it more. Thanks. :)
