But do you really want to compete with 22 year old junior sysadmins? Have you been running a data center out of your basement they way they have?
A 22 year old junior sysadmin is either completely out of his/her element, or more focused in a vertical segment of the network of a fortune 500. Jr or Sr System administration is generally reserved for people that have lots of experience built upon institutional knowledge. Sr sysadmins are damn near close to being an IT director, but do more grunt work whereas an IT director is purely focused on the business side of things (such as planning for future growth and budgeting).
