Question for people with IT Jobs
Hey everyone, I'm about to start back to school. Right now I'm just starting out at a community college. Here's my situation. I have a desire to get into the IT field of work and I don't know which degree to go for. My interest is not really in programming or web development, but I've always been good with helping people solve their computer issues in the past. I've been called the "tech guy" by some of my friends who really don't know much about computers.
Long story short is something like tech support or anything to do with the software end of it is where my current knowledge is. I'm already 27 so I'm getting a late start on all this, but what's the best option for me? I'd like to make a decent amount of money without having to go for a four year degree. I'm not opposed to going to school four years, but I'm curious if I can get by with two. I'm trying to decide if I go with the two year if it's better to have an AS or AAS degree. I've read that the latter can be more directed at a specific thing such as networking and such as that.
So from people who are currently working or have worked in any capacity in the IT profession can you give me some advice? I really appreciate it. I've been sitting here and I have to register for classes and I have no idea what to choose. Thanks again.
