    I work for a leading airline. I also work for an International government organization, on intergovernmental co-operation and information. Both interesting jobs with there own challenges, but the travel is great, if you can take it.

    Many of my friends want to come work with me because they know how much I make, but I always warn them that they could die any day out here. I'm used it now. I don't recommend it unless you really consider yourself a badass. We did a 20hr shift the other day.

    Utility Construction here. we mostly bury fiber optics, phone or power lines. ATM me and another guy are burying fiber optics up to peoples houses which isn't too bad but people put some dumb crap in their yards making for rediculous obstacle courses and unnecessary hand digging.

    I don't remember seeing those openings in my area. What I see are openings for something like programmers and administrators typically requiring a bachelor degree. I don't even have an associate degree. I wish graduation didn't require getting a computer job or internship. It has been several years now so I forgot a lot of what I was taught. I really wish I had taken up programming instead of networking.

    Why don't you try getting certificates like CCNA or even CCNP? Yeah it costs a lot of money to be able to take the exams but the benefit with those Cisco certificates is that companies get reduction on Cisco products if they hire certified people. Another benefit for you is that you can refresh your knowledge about networking ;)

    Programming is boring, Networking is a good skill to have plus it's more interesting imho.

    Admins don't really need a degree, MCP/Cisco/CompTia or other related qualifications are as good if not better, although many places will accept equivalent industry experience...

    If you're in NZ check out TradeMe Jobs or Seek, there's always heaps of IT jobs listed especially in Auckland.


    Here's TradeMe for example...
