Summary of a Computer Network and System Administrator
My career goal is to become a Computer and network systems Administrator and hopefully be able to enter the job field 2016. This is my backup plan cause currently I repair computers, laptops and other electronics. The IT and repair field is the same process and coursework that I am already taking and pursuing. If this plan does not work and I don’t get a job with my associates degree and my certificates, I will plan on transferring to a 4 year college and get my bachelor degree. At this point I am not committed to one college, I will decide that when that times comes. My educational major is Computer Information Technologies – Network Administrator Track. The requirements are for an associate’s degree. A bachelor is required but most businesses will also accept the certificates that can be obtained with the course I will be taking. There is 64-68 credit hours required to graduate.
