I'm looking for some advice. After having to take about two years off from university due to suffering from viral meningitis, I have finally gone back and finished my undergraduate degree in Information Systems, which is a stream from the applied computer sciences.
I am very excited to finally be done, and am eager to get my resume out there with that being a part of my education. However, as for experience, I don't feel I may have gotten a lot from the current position that I've held, over the last two years.
I have worked on many automating processes using VBA with Excel and some SQL, and I have experience programming a legacy IBM system. I'm not sure, or not confident, that my "experience" is going to be good when it comes to applying for jobs related more to my field of study. I have experiences with other information systems related topics too but I don't want to drop my CV on this post. I guess I'm worried that I'm under qualified for a good career. I've been looking at possible jobs and the experience needed for many includes working on wide ranges of OS platforms, including Linux, Unix, Windows, and OS X; as well as multiple code languages, and so much more.
I want to start earning a good salary, better than what I've gotten without my degree. However, I'm finding myself being nervous that I'm still under qualified a good career and salary.
For background context as to why I'm nervous; before I went to university all my jobs were laborious in nature. I had no formal educational background and as a matter of fact, I didn't even finish high school when I was a kid. I had no confidence. University gave me a lot of confidence and it has been growing over the years. Now I feel nervous and my confidence is low.
In saying all this, tell it like it it please, based on your experience. You don't need to wear kid-gloves with me, I need facts.
Thanks for taking the time.
