    Okay Well This year at college i'm looking into doin PC maintainence and Networking. This is a City & Guilds diploma.

    I was wondering If I could go to University to do PC Networking on this?

    I have a careers apt booked for tomorrow.

    seriously??, as an engineer i know how few jobs there are out there compared with 10yrs ago and the conditions these days are not what they are used to be.
    honestly i would advise against, hardware is getting more reliable by the day, system software and redundancy systems are improving by the minute.
    consider a booming area like network administration/security instead

    aside from that id say if it is the same as a couple of a levels instead of gcse,s then it should be ok

    I am an IT consultant and I agree that technician style jobs are kinda being phased out. IT security is a big big thing and is very well paid. I would also recommend Software Engineering, Mobile technologies, IT Consultancy or Infrastructure consultancy using things like VMware, Citrix, SMS etc.

    I also work in I.T industry (Cisco Engineer), I personaly wouldn't bother with academic qualifications and get out there and do some industry standard ones, ie Cisco, Microsoft, Citrix. You will have to pay for them but its what companies are looking for and are recognised.
