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.
