I am about to finish my degree and I want to choose one IT field where I can rise in my life with experience and salary goes beyond US$100K or more after some years of experience.
So can you please guide me which path should I follow? I have 1 year left in my degree. So I can do related certification regarding that field but my main aim is to go beyond US$100K salary at some point.
I have few options
1. Linux System administrator 2. Data Warehousing SQL cognos or something 3. [CCNP] 4. [CCIE] 6. Going on path to [CSO] - going on path of cheif security officer or [CISSP] 7. Programming. Java , .NET, J2EE, etc. 8. Windows [MCSE], Active directory
Guys/gals, please help in this so that I can plan my career. I have my brother who is doing Java programming and in 4 years he is at same position where he started with no increment in salary and now he lost his job. He found a new job and again at the same salary.
I don't want to be like him that even after 4 years I still get a US$45K salary.
I am ready to learn anything, but I want to rise in my chosen line. I can study day and night.
