career change: How to get out of IT!
I currently work as a jr system admin. Recently my wife had a child. I dont like where I am at currently and I want to move closer to home. 60 miles is just too much strain with a new child. "Home" has very limited job choices, very few include IT. Basically there is just a hospital and a community college that even has an IT department. I check thier job boards everyday. Recently, I applied for an IT technician job at the community college, a peon job. I though I would surely get an interview. However, I didnt even get an interview. 15 people applied and 12 were interviewed. Apparently I didnt meet thier qualifications (2 years progressive experience or a bachelor's degree). I have 2 years experience, a bachelor's degree, A+, Net+, Sec+, and one exam away from MCSA. Im bummed out. I had thought of changing careers. I just dont know what other career i may be qualified for. Does anyone know what type of career I may be qualified to do outside of IT?
