    Who's telling the truth??? Career Advice Needed Badly

    this was originally posted in the general discussion board. Would like to get some input from this board as well. THANKS, ....
    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ____
    I am trying my dam'est to figgure out a route to take for beginning a career in IT >< The computer science department head at my local community college swears to me that if I take the program they've put together (an associate of science in database management which is heavily weighted in oracle classes) I will have a good paying job waiting for me upon completion. >< However, speaking to a staff memeber at the University of Florida, I was given different advice. I was told that if I was going to go the associates route, I should just go for certification ( I think that is the whole idea behind the community college's associate of science degree in database management.) Further, she suggested, If I wanted any "real" job in IT, I needed to obtain a 4 year degree. ><
    So, here I sit with no knowledge and contradictary information. Additionally, it wouldn't hurt for you to know a lil about my personal situation. I am a single father (with custody) of two mid-school-aged daughters. I run a business for myself inorder to support us all ( it doesn't pay much - I'm constantly juggling bills.) I am looking for the quickest route to a 30k - 35k a year salary with upward potential in the following years. Thanks for your help. Advice from this group is always carefully listened to and appreciated sincerely! Andy

    Lesson one, don't cross post

    Most people that come here read a variety of forums.... and will see your thread in GD. This board is for C code talk only.

    Please post all follow ups on this thread.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
