I worked in restaurants for years. (Want fries with that?) I completed a year of college 10 years ago. Just got a great new job on the computer help desk for a mid-sized company. I am dedicated to a career change. My end game is to become a database administrator. Can you recommend a plan for completing my database administrator degree online? Faster is better. What do I need to know about DBA certification? I do not want to be at the help desk forever!
