High school student needing some career advice.
I'm a senior in high school. I'm set on a computer career. I was origianally interested in going to college and getting a bachelor's in CIS for programming, but my teacher keeps telling me that those sort of jobs are on the decline because of out sourcing or something like that. Well, he's done some cisco stuff and he was telling me about it. I know that it is very difficult and it's a very advanced, in-depth version of the Net+ I'm taking now. I've been told that people can make quite a living with just the cisco cert's. Unfortunately that's about all I know. I just joined the forum and haven't read too much. I was thinking now that maybe I could go for the cisco certs then just get an associates or bachelors in CIS. Cisco needs programmers right? I'm getting A+, Network+, Server+, and Security+ by the end of this class that I'm taking along with some basic HTML. I'm also learning QBASIC then I'm going to try to learn a little java on my own. If anyone could give a little guidance it would be much appreciated.
