Who are you? What do you do? How did you get there?
Being a student interested in majoring in Information Technology, I'm very interested in what everyone does...where they went to school...what degrees they have...what kind of suggestions they have to a prospective student...etc. Sure my counselor can tell me what degrees are most common in this field, but I'd rather get the answers straight from the people themselves. Im particularly interested in..Network Administrators.. Systems Administrators... *Security analysts*... *photography people*....


Edit: What would you like to be doing?

My ultimate plan is to develop, and then hopefully work my way into system analysis or project managment. That's the stuff that earns you money and is quite a bit more interesting than hacking code all day.
