info on IT
hello all - i am new to the board. i found this website somehow just looking around for some information on information technology. i worked for a computer repair place in my hometown for about 5 years before deciding to go back to school since i had found what i wanted to major in. i am in the Information Technology curriculum and would actually like to go as far as i can in school (graduate - masters phd, whatever) but once i get my bachelors i would like to work a few years before doing that maybe. what i eventually would want to do is become an IT director at a company, setup and oversee the network, possibly own my own computer repair business one day - things like that. as of this point i do not have any certifications but am looking into it. what certifications should i go for first - keep in mind i still have about 2 and a half years of school left - i have some exp being that i worked, but not feel comfotable jumping right into a cert exam. just any advice is appreciated. the school i am at has Comp Science, IT and MIS as majors but i dont want to write programs all day and i dont want the business degree of MIS so i figured IT was best suited for me but i just would like to know what is in store for my future - if i could do what i want to do with the degree..as well as getting the certs i would need.
