Just wondering, what kind of "collar" job is it, when you refer to computer networking (and possibly security) specialists
I mean Wikipedia has a very vague definition:
To me it seems like a mix of both, though perhaps it's pink collar. I'm not trying to sound snobbish but just wondering what you see computer networking jobs as.
I mean it's not a working class job, yet it does require maintenance of networks. You do work in an office, and generally at a computer. You can get paid on a contractual basis, or on a salaried basis as well and networking equipment is very unlikely to get you dirty (normally) - unless you happen to get rid of all that dust
A degree is not necessary, though can be helpful. The qualifications tend to come from big name companies. The information revolution has been called a White collar industry, yet it seems that networking people seem to do a mix of the two? - or are we pink collar?
