"I've already come this far."
The field is shrinking, network security is probably a better bet. As I was entering the field, I could already see the signs that companies are doing away with in-house technical professionals in favor of using a technical service that would serve remotely. I have not seen a company where this model does well, but that is the current trend. Network Security is a better bet right now and, although my latest associate degree is in networking technologies, I am taking the rougher road and trying to stick to information technology support specialist. Good luck, you'll need it.
