    Coli brothers and sisters? Is being a part time IT/Techie cause of school/time commitments/job, a bad thing? I'm thinking of getting a cert and checking out this field, but a thought in my head is going "Is it fair work to build another dudes company lol" ( cause I heard its all writing code for hours)

    Is it a good part time income? I don't mind the work but is it worth the out put if you get what I mean.:jbhmm:

    A recruiter let me have it straight today... told me I'm not getting a job because my experience is too dated, these non IT jobs really don't serve value to IT managers looking for talent.

    Yeah i may take one class this summer or fall because a class i need to grad and get this cert from my uni isnt being offered until next spring so i will do the udemy stuff in the mean time. I might aim at a MCSA cert since i get student discount pricing.

    Anyone here get a Management Information Systems degree? If so, what's a usual day look like for you? I'm thinking of switching to this major, but I don't know about managing other people. I heard it's a mix of both business and computer science (coding), which is what initially got me intrigued.

    Your day looks like what ever job you got. CS, IT, CIS, MIS can all get you the same jobs depending on what you want to use the degrees for.

    OR were you talking about typical day of class like as in the curriculum?

    So if I wanted to I could get a job as a programmer with this degree? I was initially planning on doing Computer Science, but ended up choosing this major because of the lack of math classes needed to fulfill the major. Might as get a minor in IT.

    I've seen the course list at my school and it's a mixture of both computer science classes and business classes.

    Also, does anyone know of any sites in which you can practice java? Something for beginners would be nice.
