I would like some advice on making a career move.
I am 23 years old, from Boston, Mass... never been to college but have 1 1/2 year Help Desk Administrator experience at a large consulting firm in Boston. I have a baby due on January 27th (my first, very excited) and I really could not bare to work a Help Desk job for the rest of my life... it's torturous.
I have taken dozens of career quizes online and according to my INTP personality, Ethical Hacking would be perfect for me. Complex problem solving is right up my alley.
Anyways, I have a basic knowledge of computers and also Graphic Design... I am pretty fluent with HTML. Right now, I am in the process of learning Python on my own (I heard it was the best first language to learn and fairly easy).
LUCKILY, I have enough money saved up to support my family and be able to go back to school for at least 2 years. My current plan is to go and get a degree in Computer Science... but I need more than that. I am really puzzled right now as to which direction I should be going to eventually end up as an Ethical Hacker... this is the only career with computers that REALLY interests me and makes great money...
Please help me work out a plan... ask any questions, I will be checking this regularly..
THANK YOU ALL AHEAD OF TIME!!
