    Hey I'm new here. I have a few questions.

    Hey all.

    I have a few questions for the Network Managers out there. I'm completely new to networking, but I've been behind a computer (Internet Marketing and Web Development) for around 4 years. I'm wanting a real career where I can get out in the world a bit more, so I looked at Network Management. I'm wanting to go to school (US) to learn it. I'm originally from the UK (my Wife is from the US) so I'm still learning about the US school system. I REALLY want to, but I can't put in that much time right now (maybe at a later date) so I was thinking about getting an Associates Degree (2 years) in Network Management from a local Community College.

    My questions are:

    1. Will that be enough to get me a job in the field? (even a low end job)
    2. How much can I expect to be paid with an AS qualification?
    3. Is a Bachelors Degree necessary for a role in Network Management?
    4. Is there any other advice that you can give me that you think I might need to know?

    Thank you all so much for your time. I really appreciate it.

    Hey,

    I don't know much about what you are asking in your questions though what I do know is schools over in America very rarely employ a Network Manager/IT Technician on site. They normally buy support third party, I wish you the best of luck though I think you may struggle in the US!

    Hi Alex.

    Thanks for your input. I'm not really looking at being employed at a school necessarily. Just wanting to know the best plan of action for schooling.

    There are lots of US members, and most traffic comes from the state side, so there should be plenty of people with the info you need.
    Try a more descriptive subject, or posting in one of the US specific forums - they aren't used as much but might catch someone's eye. e.g. US General Chat

    Failing that, you could approach anyone that seems useful for advice.
    You might also want to just ask teh careers service at the local college for advice as they'll be best place to tell you what the course is worth in the real world.
