Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Young, ambitious, and little experience. What job to search for?

ultimatefish67 writes: I am a recent graduate of a unique major. It's titled Integrated Science and Technology, simply put my studies were a mile wide but an inch deep. After graduating I currently hold an internship position that is part-time with little hopes of it turning into a full-time job. The intern job is to help manage content of a large website via a custom built CMS through which I'm learning the basics of HTML and CSS. My goal is to get more involved in programming and network systems. I know that last sentence was incredibly broad (and likely the sign of an inexperienced person), but I'm also spending my time learning from the ground-up, starting with learning Python. Because the deepest into coding I got in college was an intro to VB and ASP.NET. I do not have the funds to go back and get a CS degree. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, and to make it more definitive, here is my question: Based on my little experience but interest and ambition in the IT field what jobs should I look for that are within my realistic grasp?
