Hi all....
I don't know whether this question is to be posted in this forum or not.If this is a wrong place,i hope moderator will help me.

I did MS in Information Systems Management.I did MBA back home and I am new to computers and has some basic knowledge of computers,networks,protocols etc.

My question is whether to choose my career in programming field or in the networking field.As iam new to programming and as i heard that programming is tough,Iam in doubt whether I will be able to do programming.I feel that networking is easier than programming as I has to read more ie the scope is more and I will be able to manage
if I has a couple of certifications in my hand.Is that true?So can anyone suggest me in taking a
good decision for my future based on the current IT market situation??

Any comments and suggestions are welcome,
Ranch Hand

there seems to be more demand for network people, and that cant really be outsourced like programming can. since you say it seems easier for you, that should be your clue. i find networks stuff more difficult. im more natural at programming, so i an going with that in spite of poor job outlook for near future. go with what seems easier and more natural and more to your liking, after all, no matter what anyone says, it isnt just about the money.
you might get more replies in jobs discussion forum (this one is slow) and it really belongs there, so i will move it for you.
