after 4 years of computer sciences at university i realized that my mind is really empty , i feel unable to develop a software or to resolve a networking problem , i guess that i am just making too much theory and im lacking of practice , but what bothers the best is that i want to specialze in sumthing , but i dont know yet if i want to do networking or developping ?

Jez, I know just what your thinking about, and I'm not even in college! Thats creepy...in any event, I'm very happy with doing what I'm doing. I'm a network administrator for a small company about 2 hours away from my house. I haven't been down there in about 5 months, because all I had to do was remote into there computers. I don't do much, but I get paid alot for it. Networking is where it's at.

I think an interesting thing you'll find is that when you get on a job, things may come easier to you if you have the solid theory background. Once you see things in actions, things will really click. I'd give both networking and development a try, see what really makes you happy. You don't necessarily have to be a techie to work around technology -- with a 4 year degree you could be on the path to management or other areas.

Freenet, I find the crucial thing is to have interest in IT. I had a friend who wanted to do an expensive Oracle DBA course because he would be able to get a good job. I was a bit sceptical because I knew he wasn't really interested in IT and sure enough he did not really gain anything from the course.

If you have an interest in IT and are willing to develop it, your degree will serve as a good foundation, otherwise you may struggle.

Like Dalight says, you need to have an interest in IT to start with.

Don't worry freenet, I'm abit like you. I do various courses and bits of internal training etc, and think I've taken nothing in. But, when I actually get my hands on the relevant piece of equipment, it's quite surprising how much you can remember.

My Jedi Master (The Bishop) gave me a sage piece of advice when I first started as a Techie. It went something like, although the software may change quite a lot, and you have to learn everything again. The physical network in the background wont change that much. The equipment may be upgraded, but the basic principle will stay pretty much the same.

However, having said all that. The best advice has already been given. Try everything, if you can, and find the one you enjoy.
