I personally think something more than a general degree in Computers is going to be where you anyone who is pursuing this field will be needing to get anywhere anymore. Let's face it, today's high school students grew up with computers in their world from day one and are already probably more skilled than us 30 something's when it comes to them so we need an extra leg up so to speak to get far. The difference between us and them will be that we are wiser with age and therefore able to discern more based on life experience. This and sad to say but most of us are already more mature and less likely to cause immature issues with the company. Not saying that some kids aren't wise beyond their years though and more mature than some adults though.

You CAN get a good job without a degree at all.. I started on the bottom and worked up to a System Administrator job.. Before that, I was a manager of a desktop support team.. I'm not even 30 yet. Will I ever become an IT Director? CIO? at a big office environment? Not without a degree.. But I don't want to become a big manager.. I like to manage small groups and do work..
However, certifications help a lot.. I would focus on these.. As others said, Cisco is the way to go and a way to a huge paycheck.. I know someone that went from 60K-91K basically overnight because of his Cisco certs..

I would suggest going with accounting. Accountants are always in high demand.

Please tell me how can I do this? I would be so excited if I can do this. But not sure how. You see most of my resume has warehouse experience on it. I'm sooooooooo tired of working warehouse jobs and ready to move on to something better.
By the way everyone I live in Salt Lake City, Utah.
