This is a really basic question, not even technical.
I'm trying to learn about Windows Server 2003. However, I feel that I'm not really prepared to face the "real world" out there, in terms of utilizing my skills, which are not that big at this point.
How do I really "prepare" myself for the professional world out there? I'm a total newbie. I have not yet held a job in the IT industry.
I see sometimes that there are people out there who are holding jobs in this area that they "may" not be really qualified. And they don't really seem to realize it. How do I prevent myself from becoming one of those people?
How can I really be sure that my skills can be good enough to stand under "real time"?
How do the people who are really qualified "get it"?
I think that one of my biggest weakness is that I'm kind of "dumb". Everytime I see coding, I try to avoid it and do not analyze it. I'm really bad at coding. How do the people at coding seem to "see" the answers?
I know this is a long post and lots of vague questions. I guess what I want is someone to tell me the "truth" of how brutal it is out there and how much do you really have to know......
