Okay, ill tell you a little about myself first before i go into anything. I'm 18 1/2 years old and i am currently in my freshmen year. I am going for CIS just trying to learn anything i can. i really want to focus on networking but id like to learn about the software side aswell because im already pretty intelligent on the hardware side. This summer, i am going to take 2/4 cisco classes required to get the certificate so i can get that out of the way. Now on to my job...I work at little caesars...lol. This job is NOT paying enough for my necessities and i need more pay. i can work more because i have several classes in the morning which leaves the day open for opportunities. the only days i cant work are mondays and wednesdays because of classes during the day. is there ANY job that i can go out and find whether it be on the internet or around town that can prepare me for my future? id like to have a job involving fixing or being around computers and helping people with them and such. I actually just got back from my into to computer information systems today and i knew every word that was coming out of the professors mouth before it actually did. the professor actually said that i was the "star" of the class (not trying to brag lol) and that any corporation would need me in their workforce i cant remember what else he said. everyone in the class was just looking at my like i was crazy. some points in the class i actually wanted to show up the professor but i didnt want to seem rude or anything so i didnt. but the point is, i just want a decent job and i just want to prepare myself for the future since i love working on computers and such and i just need a better job that can show me the way. anyone got any ideas? sorry for the lengeth btw

Paragraphs. Spelling. Grammar.

The first step is to encourage people to take you seriously. I'd start by improving your communication skills.

To answer your question: yes.

I'd start by talking to the professor who spoke well of you and ask him for advice and help finding a job.

My suggestion would be to go apply for your college's tech department. They always need people since they constantly cycle every year or every couple of years.

If you don't know where the tech department is or have no idea if they are hiring, ask the professor that likes you.
