I'm 21 and I'm a Pharmacy Technician at a Hospital... I'm not making nearly what I'm supposed to be making, so I'm about to start searching for Pharmacy Tech jobs at other Hospitals and other Pharmacy settings and maybe in a bigger city

I plan on going back to school soon for Pharmacy... I'll be old as hell by the time I finish school, but it'll be worth it
I just finished a program to be a pharmacy tech. Now I just have to do the externship and then pass the PTCB to get my license. Starting out over here in Cali is about 10 to 15 an hour depending on where you go.

I'm 29 with a Bachelors in Psychology emphasis in Child and Adolescent Development and a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. I'm currently in school @ BU working on another Masters, this one in Social Work. (My goal is to eventually have my PhD.) I completed my first Masters @ the age of 25 and subsequently began my career. I am an Elementary School therapist. I do individual and group therapy with the little ones who either need help with social skills, difficulties surrounding their learning, difficult life situations, and or difficulty regulating themselves. I love what I do and get paid very well. (Pay depends on the school district.) Not to mention I get to enjoy summers off. :)

I want to get into the computer science field myself. I'm goin to community college for one more year before I transfer so what classes can I take here n what certifications can I get. A lot of u guys r in that field so any answers would help.

I went to a cc first as well. pretty much try to knock out all the required math and physics classes required for the bs program at the cc and take c/c++ or java ,assembly, data structures. all the other extra comp science classes required for the a.ssociates probably wont transfer.. well they didn't in my case.
As far as certifications go it all depends on which area interest you, if you like networking look into cisco and juniper or help desk/sytem admin work look into comptia, microsoft ect.... or just use your degree when you finish and get a job as a software engineer

Its all about work experience, if you have no work experience certifications may help you get an interview for a low level position. start with the basics and get the a+ mcp network+ and try to get a job working help desk or in a noc, while your in school.

..... would you hire someone with a ccnp mcse ect, with no work experience?, I wouldnt

26 with a BS in Computer Information Systems( honestly, i learned more on the job than i did in 4 years of school. Waste of money, but i think it'll help on your resume for sure.)


Work as a datacenter technician, basically working at the physical layer. Just a little over 50k a year. I was on pace to get my MSCA but i stopped after I passed the MCP. I just got lazy. Thinking about finishing that up and getting back into networking. Its either that or continue to do what i do now and possibly become a engineer. Also help my father with consultant work for writting proposals for ACS and headstart programs. Usually another 30k a year. I'm gonna be taking that over soon i might want to get my masters in business though. still not sure.


For those doing networking right now, how is the job for ya'll? Is it laid back or stressful as hell? I'm a.ssuming it's the former. Do you really need to have a deep understanding of networking with windows server? or just the basics? One thing I'm finding out is more and more people are getting their CCNA's and are over qualifying themselves. But it makes the MSCA look like nothing in comparison. I don't think i want to be cisco certified tbh...

You should get the more difficult classes out of the way. Like programming just wasn't for me...i mean Visual basic, C ++, Oracle, etc they can be very beneficial to you if you have a knack for it. If not, i'd try to get those credits at the CC before you move onto a bigger school which would likely be harder. As far a Certs, like the other guy said, depends on the specific part of the IT field you want to be in. MSCA, CCNA, NET + will help you if you're looking into networking. You'll have a lot of competition there though, everyone goes for the networking field. But it pays well.

Its pretty laid back to me ... as far as windows server goes I know next to nothing about it... alot of jobs are confused about what they want,they ask for a network admin/ engineer and yet the job description for the majority of those jobs are really asking for a system's admin requiring mcsa or mcse .....

So is the ones with pluses (a+, mcp network+, etc.) the classes I take and ccnp mcse the certifications? Do I get the certs after I finish the classes or do I need to take tests somewhere else? And what's a noc? And is networking the easier way to go cuz I know u said there's more competition n more money but is the workload more?

I'm moving from Cali to az in like a month so I'm only going to a cc for a year to avoid the out of state tuition at asu. I only need 2 classes to transfer so I thought I mite as well get sum type of certificate while I'm there. I'm pretty good with computers and a fast learner but I really have no idea what direction to go in the field. Props will be given to those who helped/helps. Appreciate it.
