Well, I am currently a Computer Science student, and I have decided I am not fond of it at all(no offense to CS majors. Everybody has their differences and without people like you, I wouldn't even be typing here). I have many reasons, one being that I enjoy being active, helping others, and having a good amount of communication. Programming would be more of a hobby than a career for me for sure. I am finding more and more that IT would fit some of these needs. I do have an interest and understanding of technology and think I want to pursue a degree, but I am having a heck of a time picking one. The problem is, I still have my doubts and questions, so I thought where better to look for input them a forum that have others with similar interests. I was considering Computer Engineering for a while, but the only thing is I am really not interested in all the electrical engineering classes I would have to take. I am not quite interested in designing or constructing chips or cards for computers either. I could handle it and am a 4.0 student good in math.I don't want to sell myself short or anything, I'm just not sure if it is for me either. For IT/Network Admin, as I said it seems like it would fit these needs. My only concern is that I do not want to get into something that will put me into a cubicle/desk job most of my dies, or get me too into a mentality. I don't want to get too involved into business, I want to be more on the tech and human level, although many of the degrees require many business courses. Something that sounds interesting would be the Network Admin/Tech support specialist for a college campus,, or maybe for some organization, such as I want some change from day to day, some movement, working with people and troubleshooting/fixing things if I was involved in tech support. A similar concern is that I would be too involved in information/databases rather than helping others or working on computers. Lastly, I am wondering about the stress level of a career field such as IT/Networking. I don't want something that is TOO stressful, where I would 12 hour days and have no free time because something is always going down, people always need me, etc. I am a somewhat laid back person, and although I like to see new challenges and things going on from day to do, I don't want to constantly be under high amounts of stress. I want to go into a field that I enjoy, and where I can be in an environment where I can make others happy too(although I may not be able to all the time). There just seems to be so many options. I've talked to different college advisors, but they are just that. They're at the campus, not active in the career field, and I can't see for myself what it is like. It's all she said he said. I feel that getting some input on these forums may give me a broader look at what sort of things I would see in an career field like this.
