I have been working in IT for what feels like forever and am thinking of a change. Current position is at a helpdesk for specialized software, I pretty much can't take what I've learned in the past 5 years here with me. It was a good job at first, I had been unemployed for 6 months and it was for a large company that paid a good deal more than my prior job. Previous job was as a jr network admin which I enjoyed more since I wasn't tied to a desk and felt like I was actually accomplishing something everyday.
I'm trying to decide what to go back to school for right now. Either stay in IT but go back to school for programming/DB admin (take a cert course) or look into HVAC repair. I like the idea of no longer being tied to a desk having different jobs everyday, right now I just go through the same miserable thing day in day out.
