My goal is to become a consultant in this systems and network line. But I am not sure whether I am going in a right direction. Please tell me how I can make my dream true.
To work as a consultant in the systems and nework line, you might also want to consider pursuing a master's degree with an emphasis on network design, protocols, security, wireless, or some other relevant and popular subject matter.
I agree that the market is in a real up-and-down phase right now, and
that job security is pretty chancy at all levels. By making sure you are
on top of your subject matter, and learning how to position your knowledge
and experience to the best advantage for your employer (and ultimately, for
yourself) you should be able to reach your stated goals.
