First of all you should know that qualifications aren't everything to an employer, experience, attitude and things like that are important as well. That doesn't mean you shouldn't try hard because you should.
I would like to get in the IT field when i get older. This means going to college for a few years and have somthing that someone else might have. A degree. It looks nice. Although for me to get in the IT field they really want on job experiance!
If you have really good experiance with IT, your company will love you forever !
But to start in the field you need to show some kind of dedication to somthing and that you really want it !
