Sounds hectic AF. Also sounds like a 6 figure Career.

I'm a senior at Rutgers, about to graduate with an IT degree. Looking to start off in either some sort of non-technical position, or web development. Back end coding does not exactly pluck my heartstrings.

My best friend's girlfriend didn't even get a computer/tech-related degree, and taught herself web design and landed a pretty good job straight outta school with JP Morgan in Wilmington, and is willing to help me get my foot in the door there as well. So knowing her background, I feel pretty confident I can manage it as well, just looking to maximize my chances is all.

Im not sure for coding or webdesign, but Tech is so broad. I think that having a basic understanding of the concepts your applying for would help. Most stuff your going to learn on the job. That being said, i'm graduating in April with my Bachelors in Technical management. I've been a System Manager/System Administrator at my position. What i had learned in school simply helped me wrap my head around some of the things i've had to do here, but otherwise i've learned everything on the job. My degree taught me NOTHING about active directory, but i rebuilt our entire domain structure and group policy objects just by saying i'm gonna do it.

I'm looking to move on in april (im only 25) and hoping that another place gives me the same opportunity my current organization gave me. Thats the struggle being young and not having a huge and impressive IT background on your resume. Have to just find that right company that says "lets give him (or her) a shot." I believe the degrees show you're capable of learning, which is what employers want to know.
