Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A lot of companies are looking for linux administrators. A CCNA will help because that will cover the networking requirement.

Don’t discount IT management. Companies always require a fresh influx filling bottom management ranks, and people who can progress. Price Waterhouse Cooper and Carnegie-Mellon’s CyLab have recent surveys that show the senior executive class to be, basically, clueless regarding IT risk and its tie to overall enterprise (business) risk. We need people from the current envvironment of data breaches and thefts to improve a lagging business culture.Check your local library or bookstore: A book that is required reading is “I.T. WARS: Managing the Business-Technology Weave in the New Millennium.”
The author, David Scott, has an interview that is a great exposure: http://businessforum.com/DScott_02.html –
The book came to us as a tip from an intern who attended a course at University of Wisconsin, where the book is an MBA text. It has helped us to understand that, while various systems of security are important, no system can overcome laxity, ignorance, or deliberate intent to harm. Necessary is a sustained culture and awareness; an efficient prism through which every activity is viewed from a security perspective prior to action.
In the realm of risk, unmanaged possibilities become probabilities – read the book BEFORE you suffer a bad outcome – or propagate one. Then, become part of the new wave of management that can handle the rapidly accelerating business-technology environment.

    Classes, degrees, certifications, etc. are good but focusing on getting some hands-on experience and becoming a better person are much much better for you long-term. Here's a link to several articles I've written on this subject: http://www.principlelogic.com/careers.html Best of luck!
