Os/Ad/Windows Careers

For posters of web server 2003, active directory, OS, EE categories I have a few questions:

What kind of careers are you in and for what sized companies?
What is your job title and you’re day to day/regular duties?
What skills did your employer look for to get your job? i.e. is windows/AD administration enough, or do they typically look for other stuff as well?
Or perhaps recommend qualifications in your field of expertise?
Does the job pay well, and if there massive demand for your skills/job in the market?

Basically, I am looking to into where to focus in “IT” and AD/Windows environments is perhaps one route I may one day look to go down. So any advice most welcome on if you’d recommend it or recommend stay away there’s no jobs in this field etc:

What to study?
What type of job titles to search for to see?
What people are asking in terms of qualifications, skills etc etc

The first advice I'll offer you is that you should not limit yourself.
IT is a broad field the more you have to offer, the better your position.
In a small company, you will need to be all things to all people.
In a larger company you might have a more specialized position. i.e. Os Installs, AD management, network, printers, shares.
If you want to specialize, Database administration/Architect, Design for all types Oracle, MS SQL, mySQL, etc.
With a broad set of knowledge/expertise, you would be in a position to recommend alternatives that are better performing/lower cost, etc.

Or are you lookint at MCSE type certifications?
