"Make your own way..."
In the military, career development and having a career plan was part of the overall growth perspective. In the civilian world, you must control and manage your own career progression. There is no set path, and the way one person advances is completely different from how you'll advance. Make your own plan, and stick to it.

Senior Systems Engineer in Mobile:
"You Can't Know What You Are Getting Into."
A career in IT means different things to different people. There is no way to know fully if you will like it, but remember there is a large customer service component of IT work, it isn't just fancy buttons and doo hickeys. No career is really permanent, but IT can become a long term career if you invest your time and energy to make it into the career you want it to be.

Senior Systems Engineer in Yonkers:
Consider yourself self-employed, regardless of how you are compensated for your work. Be professional and give the client or employer your best work but never give them your unquestioned trust.

"Many Customers."
Everyone who asks you a question is a customer. Give them good service. The word will spread that you are easy to work with and have the answers. If you do not know the answers then find the person who does and stay on each issue until it is resolved.
