What do you like doing? What are you good at? theres no point in just getting a job that you hate, just because the pay is good. Me myself would like to fondle around on the server side when i am older :D

I think it'd be foolish to go into a service without a qualification. I think you'd do better to carry on with the colledge you are at now, go to uni and take computer science or something. That way you'll be more qualified to do any job. you'll also be qualified to do the job that you would have been trained to do in the services. - with the added bonus that as a holder of a certificate of higher education you have more chance of an officers job - which is higher paid, and in the event that you decide that you don't like the services (I've friends who joined thinking they would but actually really hate it) then you'll be qualified to get any job you want.

Well being a hardware technician isnt that hard if you dont mind getting dirty and fixing up some wires, as long as your not working by yourself, try finding a little computer shop and be an apprentice and you can learn as you go along
