Comment w and get an MSCE (Score 1) 352

Get an entry level programming job and work on a computer engineering or software engineering masters degree. Or try for an MBA.

Getting into IT can be a one way trip. It is hard to get back to programming/cs aspects after you get labeled as a network tech or help desk person. See previous threads on topic here on /.

My experience was working for several years while struggling to get an MS. I did work IT/support (got stuck) and it was only happy serendipity (and good connections) that got me back into software development. Getting my masters was more for the resume build than learning. I did learn, but the MS was a lot more important when it came to finding contracts and working DARPA projects.
