    Is this a question or fortune telling?

    An excellent knowledge of Linux and how to use to research your "requirements".
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,

      In my mind, I would think web hosting would be a strong industry. Maybe not as strong as Nursing, but strong from an IT perspective. Really though, datacenter specialists might be the strongest since everything will be consolidated into massive datacenters in the next few years. Remember the Borg's mothership in Star Trek? I heard Microsoft is trying to buy the copyrights on its design from Paramount Pictures. Google probably beat them to it though.

      Anyway, here are some courses that could get you off in that direction:
      1. Start installing Linux on some machines and playing with it. You could go hardcore and wipe Windows off of your machine and go 100% Linux. That would be a bit like total-immersion therapy but I bet you'd learn a lot.
      2. Play with creating your own server using Linux. Make a web server, an FTP server etc.
      3. Google! Search around for some good web sites that deal with the field that you're interested in. If it's datacenters, maybe read The Data Center Journal.
      4. Go for some certifications. You could start with Linux+. It's a small certification, but a step in that general direction.
      5. RHCT/RHCE: Red Hat Linux is king of the datacenter these days. Also, the RHCE has a datacenter extension to the base certification that might be of interest to you.
      6. LPI Certifications: The LPI has some certifications that I hear are tough to get. I'm sure that studying for them would force yo to grow in your understanding of Linux and also give you some valuable paper to entice an employer with.
      7. O'Reilly Training: O'Reilly has some good looking courses for various topics that might be of interest to you. They are partnered with the Unioversity of Illinois here in America. I don't think they are actual college courses, but they do give you a certificate of completion. Besides that, it's the subject matter that counts so it could be another way for you to get trained on subjects that interest you.
      8. And of course, once again, use Google and get hands-on experience! It's the best way to learn.

          I'm not in any field that relies much on Linux, so maybe I should have warned you about that. My advice is based on my observations over the last few years. I'm just a poor GUI-fied Windows admin who has some Linux aspirations.

              I'm nearly to my 2003 MCSE, and have my MCSA:Messaging. I have an MCITP in Vista and the Server Administrator. I'm hoping for the Exchange 2007 cert as well as the Enterprise Admin. I don't have any certs outside of Microsoft yet, but I hope to soon. I've been working with Windows from a professional standpoint for only about 4 years. I tend to like the networking side of things

              There are plenty of different careers in the IT world. Look around until you find one that suits your talents best. Linux is certainly a hot topic and it seems that there aren't as many proficient Linux admins as there are Windows admins.

                      Wow, that's no small accomplishment! Well done! I would check out a localized job finder web site or recruitment company that could place you where you're needed and wanted. Do you have any practical experience yet? You might want to ask your instructor if he knows of anyplace that's hiring. Look to see if there are any Red Hat users groups or other Linux users groups in the area. You can make friends and find jobs fairly easily that way. Sometimes it's a matter of who you know more than what you know.

                        Linux is the future... Way cooler than NT. But can be an absolute nightmare sometimes. I was building a OS spam filter the other day on Ubuntu and integrated Maia clamAV and Spamassasin to go infront of an Exchange server. One of my scripts failed. After drinking tons of coffee and smashing my head against a wall one " in the wrong placed canned the entire script..

                          lol gotta love it! I've installed a CentOS box running Nagios to cover 145 hosts with 781 checks including data trend logging, e-mail alerts and now with added sms alerts just to wake you up in a cold col sweat in the middle of the night!
                          I can't remember the number or times I've added new hosts or checks only to find out i've got a slight misspelling that has taken the entire thing down. I learnt very quickly to copy things into notepad first, check em and then add them into the live box for testing.

                          Pain in the bottom? Yes. Worth it though? Definitely!

                          As to the OP - sounds like you are seriously on the right track to get your target job so just stick with it, mate.
