Currently I am a Administrative Assistant wanting to move into the Project Manager field. I am working on my B.A. in I.S. I'm trying to figure out how can into this field. I know I probably have a lot more work to do than those already working inthe I.S. field. Do you have any suggestions?

First of all get yourself into a PM paradigm i.e. start thinking like a PM. How? Read anything you can lay your hands on about PM. Play the PM game i.e. look at everything you do as a project and manage them as if you would projects. Volunteer your services as a PM/Techie to some non-profit organization, maybe even your own college. You'll have to get your hands dirty with the technical details in I.S. too to be credible. Join an I.S. Association and be seen and heard.
