Most computer job will eventually lead to some programming. I'm majoring in CIS and even though it's not computer programming, I still go through Java and Advanced Java courses, HTML, C++, Visual Basic, SQL.

It's not fun, but very helpful to know in the IT field. I'm thinking Internet Security, Systems Analyst, Telecomm and Networks, or some other kind of MIS/CIS support Specialists would be good. An easier job would be something like a Computer Operator or Data Entry that requires like no skills at all. Just typing. But there's no money in that.

Oh man, that's good!! PHP and MySQL are good stuff. You can be do something in web design and database admin together. There's a lot of demand for that job too.

You can always become a teacher. There are always s huge demand in that field. As the population increase, so do kids and the need for teachers as well. Become a teacher to work in the computer labs.
