Here in the Netherlands there are several levels of formal education for, say, 16 to 25 years old students, leading to having enough knowledge to work on a help desk at the lower side and being a master of some IT specialisation on the upper side.
As an IT graduate, its really difficult to choose a career path, because IT profession is very broad. There are lots of jobs to consider like Technical support specialist, Web developer, App developer, Data analyst, Systems analyst, Quality assurance analyst, Systems engineer and Web designer. You must be specific on what line you wanted to push through for you to be able to build you expertise wisely. This idea came from the blog I read, hope this will help you. (Link removed by moderator)
