Depends on what your motivation is. The new IT as we are currently witnessing is definitely frustrating. This is especially true for those of us who are familiar with the days of readily available IT jobs, and the ability to move throughout the industry with little worry of job security. If IT is your passion, then I can't imagine not going after what you love. True, for someone starting out, there will be no glamour jobs. Helpdesk or software support may be all that's available for an entry level person, but we all had to start somewhere. Once you get your feet in the door, you will be in more of a position to advance your career in IT. My advice would be to get the experience any way that you can. Keep learning and expanding your knowledgebase. But at the same time, be realistic. You don't want to get caught with all of your eggs in one basket. How many people do you know right now who spent 10-20 years in one career and are now laid off with nowhere to go. I'm talking about people who didn't invest in learning any transferable skills. I say, go for what you love, but always keep your options open. I wish you the best!!!
