Hi everyone!

I'm thinking about a career in IT, and I'm interested in network/system administration and security. I have a couple questions though. What are the pros and cons of a degree in computer information systems or computer science? Are there currently entry level jobs available in these areas? (I hear a lot of conflicting information about this - either that these fields have the highest growth rate, or many IT people are unemployed, jobs are being outsourced etc.) Another thing I'd be interested is working in or starting a computer repair shop. Can I get a job in that with certifications? Does that make a good salary?

I appreciate everyone's feedback or comments.

Computer Science would be more for programmers who make the programs like Firefox and what not. CIS is for people who manage automated information systems aka computers via tools.

You could just even have a side job in your town of fixing computers and cleaning/updating them for people. Still pretty good money on just doing that.
