Fuck I want to be IT.

How fucked am I?

A+ Cert is good for about 10$ an hour. 23 Is a little late to be pushing for a support desk role. Go study Windows Server.

I am about to graduate Physics BSc, trying to get a job/scheme in software dev or web dev. It's going pretty well so far, though it's hard to find jobs outside of London.
