Part 1 My main focus is on networking (and cyber security). Networking is something that I like doing, but also need to have a little more real-world experience. Networking is sometimes considered the newest career available, and often it is the most sought after. With that being said, there are also quite a few companies that would love to have an individual with a background in computer networking on their staff. This is one of the goals I hope to accomplish. There are several different job titles associated with someone who works in computer networking field. A couple examples are: Network Administrator, Network Engineer and Network Programmer/Analyst. These titles are what some people would love to have associated with them. I believe that it is not easy to work in this field, and it takes a lot of dedication to be able to do your job correctly and efficiently. A Network Administrator is someone who handles the Local Area Network, or LAN for short. Then handle issues that arise in that area to include analysis, configuration of the network and other such duties. The Network Administrator also manages the daily activities such as monitoring and maintaining the network’s performance and making sure that it is suitable for what is needed, troubleshooting any issues that arise as well as maintaining the network security.
