Honestly, a mentor who is passionate enough to share their experience and lessons about the field. I've been reading what Information technology is all about but I could only go so far with the readings (ie. facts). Specifically, I need someone to guide in putting together a course list from the ISYS and Computer Science dept to prep for basic certs .
In short, an IT proffesional willing to mentor for the good vibes and Starbucks drink and pastry!

Second best? Techist
But seriously, as others have said, I think we're a decently competent bunch in the world of technology
Yep I need to work on the basics to land an internship but I suppose I could screenshot the courses and we'll see where it goes! But I guess I'm hoping to meet with a mentor around SF who can meet in person or would be ok to correspond privately (ie through email)
I'm also very new to how forums work ahaha.
