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*....

Thanks

Edit: What would you like to be doing?

What if I don't know what Morrison's is :p

School NAIT
Diploma:Working on it in Computer System Technology
Job: I ref hockey :p I'm lucky enough to have my parents putting me through school.
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.
