As has been said, plenty of times, it is a bad time to get into IT. Even if you study hard and learn everything, you will probably spend more money to catch up and get certified than you can afford to, then the "reward" at the end will be lower since we have so many really talented and out of work folks around now.

A field that is really taking off right now is the field of Risk Analysis. Many years ago, lots of Humanities majors went into finance and did fairly well (for some reason that I cannot explain). Perhaps there is something in the process of a Humanities education that prepares one for aspects of financial services.

Well, those financial services guys have screwed up big time and now are being required to evaluate and monitor risk of investments regularly and report on levels of risk openly.

Think on that one. It might be a better choice.
