To piggy back on this thread...
I've been in the IT consulting business for 5+ years now (still young, but a little older then you). Learn everything you can about SDN, Software
Defined Networking. Think VMware but for your Network. Making your WAN run like your LAN. This is the "buzz" word that is capturing everyone's
attention today, but very few companies actually have a 'go to' product for the market place, most are still trying to develop. Right now it's a
roughly a $1.8 billion business, but within 3 years it's supposed to jump up to $18-25 billion. My company is an elite partner of Adara Networks
who's been doing SDN for 13 years, but for the DoD and the products were recently declassified and made for corporate use.
SDN is the future, the future is here now. You want to be marketable, learn about this inside and out, because EVERY company will be targeting this
product for their own internal environment. And there's a reason why VMware, Cisco, and many other companies are scrambling now to put together a SDN
solution for the marketplace.
