8. Network and Computer Systems Administrator
Organizational networks are critical commodities requiring professionals to set them up and keep them running. That’s a pretty broad summary of what Network and Computer Systems Administrators do, but there are tons more to it. From enabling user access to supervising IT support teams and ensuring network security, there’s never a dull moment.
The men and women performing in these roles are assets just as vital as the network itself. And believe it or not, it’s still possible to get into some of these positions without a four-year degree! As with many of the jobs on this list, much depends on the employer’s needs. But with any computer-centric career, a lot also depends on your postsecondary certifications.
