      There are, unless your college sucks, they are academic advisers. Normally, you are REQUIRED to see them before you enroll in any classes.
      It seems I did hear about someone like that when I took one of those "what career suits you" tests a few years back. I'll ask about this when I go back to register for classes.

      What is "this shit" referring to? Finding the information I'm looking for? Knowing what I want to do? Genuine question.

      Is this the school in question?
      http://www1.abtech.edu/
      Yes

      Cause if it is here is the part of the site that will tell you everything an academic adviser knows and more as they are often wrong about shit
      http://www1.abtech.edu/content/publications/catalog
      Download the catalog and read that shit it will tell you everything you need to know.
      Ah, cool. Will do it.

      Don't expect academics to know shit about the REAL world. For that you need to find adjunct staff that are still working in the field who teach for the hell of it or a little extra spending money.

      What do you mean by "the rock stars"?

        why with so many ideas, why do you even need college?

          So, after a recent turn of events I have decided it is time to pursue a college degree. As of right now the choices I am looking at are as follows: Computer Networking, Security Systems something or another (sounded like fighting computer hackers and such), and Computer Engineering (repair). I know VERY little about computers but I know it's a constantly advancing field and hopefully will keep my exposure to people at a bare minimum.

          On to the point. Does anybody have experience in any of these fields? I'm just looking for some basic information like wages, how hard the classes might be, or anything else you might feel is good to know. I am enrolling for next semester but I am only taking core (academic) classes, so I will have around 8 months from now to decide which of these fields to actually pursue.

          :genius:
          I'm a network engineer, you should stay out of this field. I hate working with dumbshits like you. The guy who thinks, "OH COMPUTERS ARE A GOOD FIELD TO DO WORK JOB IN!"

          No. Fuck you. Stay away. You don't have the chops or mental elasticity to do this kind of work. You are the guy who fucks everything up and can't understand why using "DRIVER FINDER 2012" is fucking everything up. You're going to be the guy who forgets to install the printer driver.

          You should just get a blue collar job where you don't have to have too many responsibilities and not have to do that much math.

            There are plenty of good fields to do work job in, I thought this one might actually be fun though seeing how much I like to learn.

            Forgetting to install drivers, huh? Now you're just being simple.

            Dear god I think I need a hug after this chastising!

              I look at it like this, what I like to do is make money and I have heard that especially in Computer Security there can be good money. Plus I don't see computers going anywhere lol. Can you give me some examples of fields you've seen disappear?
              The richest guys i know are contractors, why not study electricity (even electricity engineering? mucho money), some sort of building engineering/planning even being a successful plumber can make you a lot of money. If you want to make money the university isn't the place...Zuckerberg and the likes didn't really need to study computer science, they were already programmers.. Why not study business, which is very general, not hard and opens doors (basically trains you to be a manager) and than become a manager in a construction company? less labor, good money..and you like it. Or you can than open your own company...Goodlun said something very true, and it is true not just for computers, if you want to be good at it to make good money it should be a passion already.

                Do things that other people will not do.
                Do things that other people can not do.
                With the one caveat these things have to be something people need done.
                Or marry money..that is the easiest fastest way...

                  I don't really disagree, but I'm going to offer an opposing viewpoint. Sometimes it pays to be practical and follow a proven career path even if it isn't your idea of fun. Most people think work sucks. Get over it and find a way to function despite that.

                  A boring, tedious career can be a pain in the ass but it isn't as stressful as not being able to provide for yourself or your family. In my case, I made prudent and logical decisions when choosing a career path. Is it exciting? Fuck no. Do I want to murder people at work? Sometimes. Do I have any passion for my job? Nope, but I fake it for my own benefit. It pays the bills and I have enough money left over to pursue the things in life I am passionate about. Just something else to think about.

                    Could you give me some more info or links about the electrical jobs. Would a Business degree really open up a management job for me with no prior management experience?

                      You've got to work your way up bro. A college degree will help you get your foot in the door if you're lucky. You're expecting too much from college.

                      I'm thinking maybe something in the sanitation field would suit you.

                        I don't know it's what I expect from college so much as it's what I hope to gain from college.

                          No college degree is going to magically qualify you to lead other people in a professional environment.

                          Yes, like the garbage man.

                            College is a great place to learn how to locate & research material. Many times, it helps one to learn to communicate more effectively and to network. I learned more in my first month of active duty than four and a half years in college.

                            I thought I spelled it wrong, but as I said I'm a mechanic not an English professor.

                              I learned technical skills in college and gained basic business knowledge. But I wouldn't be managing others if it weren't for my military leadership experience. And even with that it took several years to work my way up after college.

                                That might actually not be as bad as it sounds being a state job.
