    Cranium? Nah, I work with Richard Cranium. Different guy altogether.
    I felt like bending the bars back, and ripping out the window frames and eating them. yes, eating them! Leaping, leaping, leaping! Colonics for everyone! All right! You dumb*sses. I'm a mental patient. I'm *supposed* to act out!

    After school is a good time to learn what they don't teach you in school - which will be much and hopefully never ending in expanse. I would not try to define yourself around a curriculum title or even what the curriculum purports to offer. I had a BA in English and Metaphorical Linguistics, then got an MBA. While getting the MBA I spent allot of time working on MBA projects in the computer center at the university. Eventually, I started tutoring other students and then got hired as a IT Helpdesk Tech at the university. After my masters, I went to a Unix/C/C++/OOP certificate program for 8 weeks (320 hours - thought it would be good to augment the masters with some technical flavor).

    As it turns out, I liked the course and ended up getting another helpdesk job, but this time as a Netscape Server Support Specialist (at the time Netscape SuiteSpot Servers included Enterprise (web), Directory (ldap database), Proxy (filtering/routing), Certificate (security), Compass (cataloging), Messaging (mail), Collabra (news), and Calendar (scheduling) and were supported across Windows NT and UNIX platforms (SUN SOLARIS, IBM AIX, HP-UX, SGI IRIX, and DIGITAL). Provided helpdesk support to fortune 500 companies, educational institutions and government clients, including the CIA, NSA, U.S. Air Force, U.S. House of Representatives, and U.S. Postal Service - quite an experience.

    After that I got promoted into a technical management position; then moved on to going back to a full-time MCSE program, did some more graduate level work, started a corp., closed a corp., got the network+ cert,..........started another business and am now doing research. Keep your options open - in all likelihood there will be opportunities available that you cannot yet envision.

    in school you will learn knowledge, but after you must find a good job that will permit to learn how to apply this knowledge in all kind of situation.

    i used to work as a security network admin for a wide network after my first cursus in france.... that was really a good experience, i learn much more than in school ...
    Watch your back, your packetz will belong to me soon... xD

    Nope, that's not me.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.
