Try some volunteer work at a non-profit organization for experience and great references. Just make sure you know what you're doing before you begin!! Non-profit organizations can't afford bad free help.

I would suggest searching for a service rep or help desk position. You need to get your foot in the door. Get hands on experience by job shadowing. Don't expect to be hired as a system admin before you pay your dues. Career changes usually means taking a cut in income until you build up experience. I made my career change this way. I do not regret any of it. Patience pays off.

Don't be dismayed by the Years and Years of experience. Most places have a or equilivent added to the end of the job. This allows a person who has worked on computers on thier own to count it for experience.
All the time you have spent on the computer (at the inn) counts....Look for a small shop that needs some temp help... also you can sign up with a temp agency to get some experience.......Good Luck.....Chuck

First of all, you should not wait until you "finish school" to get into IT. Look for IT/IS opps at your current job, even if you have to volunteer your time on a particular project or initiate an IT project. Second, you can obtain your MCP certification simply by completing your first MCSE exam. An A+ certification coupled with an MCP or even just a MCP certification can immediately NOW land you a help desk/desktop/level one support job with the right job search stratetgy. Scale down your life so you can adapt to the initial lower earnings, but keep in mind your "dues paying" now will pay off later...and quicker than you think!
