Im a sys admin...

Your question is an odd one. You should learn whatever you feel like doing as a career, obviously. Do you want to code? Learn C. Want to be a network guy? Learn Cisco, etc.

It probably isnt worth the time or money to get a degree in CS unless you're going to be a programmer.

go into either computer or electrical engineering if you want to be a network engineer.

you should just check out your local community college and see what programs they offer in terms of computer networking. I recently graduated with a degree in networking and have been studying for my ccna. Pretty much the classes incorporated a shit ton of computer classes and even several classes through the cisco networking academy. The only problem is that its very difficult to find a job with a degree but without any actual job experience.... fuck the economy >sad

start backwards and look on yahoo hotjobs, craigslist or other employment sites to see what real life employers are looking for in real time.

counselors dont know shit, they just know hearsay about certain careers.

experience is going to be one of the preferences but you can make that up with internships.

Dude, if you're motivated enough to look for advice on how to become something, you should go to college. Even if you're not that into studying, you could be an accountant or something else equally boring, but better than a network engineer, and make a fuckload more money.

im gona go to an institution to study, we dont call it college over here so ill refer to it as an institution. Network engineers make quite alot of money around 4 times the average pay over here, but like i just want to get into the I.T industry not specifically a network engineer but maybe something else like a consultant. Ive already contacted quite alot of places and got good info I just wondered if anyone on here was in the industry and could help out.

^^^ If you don't know anything about computers, then why the fuck do you want to be a scrub ass network engineer. You said that they make 4 times the average salary and as someone who is about to be a responsible adult and has spent years and hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to be something, you are going to have your doubts, and you will not end up being something you don't want to be. If you want money, then be an accountant, a banker, or an insurance agent. If you want to spend all day in the back of an office building typing random ass shit into a computer, then be a network engineer.

ah ok if your here to try and tell me what to do in life please leave this thread. I have no interest in being an accountant or banker I done accounting in school and I fucken hated it. I like working with computers and stuff around it . I know the normal stuff about computer just nothing advanced and talking with pros they said you can pick up the basic computer essentials ill need within like 3 months.

I said a network engineer was just an idea as the i.t industry is broad.

^^^ dude you're on a fashion forum with "cool" people and you're asking for advice on how to become a network engineer. I think that would be boring as fuck, and I reserve the right to post pictures like these.

Joseph Bomberger - Joe has worked for A/K Computers since 1988 and then joined Optical Storage Solutions is 1995. Mr. Bomberger has expanded his technical and application knowledge to become one of the firm's primary service technicians as a Certified Network Engineer. In this capacity, he is responsible for the installation, configuration, and ongoing support of network system implementations. Possessing both network and application expertise as well as technical hardware knowledge enables him to troubleshoot and resolve a wide variety of system problems.

This could be you!!!

I think your missing the whole point of it might be an option. Dressing up in cool clothes doesn't make one cool as your on this supposely cool site and your a complete loser. frequent forum lerkers and cool shouldn't really be used in the same sentence buddy.
