Hey I just saw this thread:
I have to decide a major in about a year. I'm currently in college and I'm 26 years old.
I have had two jobs when I was younger working as an intern to computer engineers. I currently work at a non-profit agency (for energy conservation) as the closest thing we have to a net-admin (with only one server and 42 end users [also don't be fooled by non-profit that doesn't mean no pay]).
I designed and maintain an Access database (I will move to SQL and will move when necessary) which has revolutionized the way we have done things in the past 30 years on a financial and efficiency level. I love working with VBA and creating cool code intensive MS Office programs that replace our old DOS system and interact with other stuff I have made.
All of this is to say I have a good job through school and a very good reference to move on when I choose to.
So my question is what should I do you think would make me the most marketable to employers?
What certification's would you recommend?
What 4 year degree would help me the most? I was thinking Business Administration with a minor in Information Systems
I like troubleshooting and rudimentary programing.
I get along great with my employees and so long as I stay sober (going on 3 years) I'll continue to have good references.
Any personal experiences and observations appreciated,
