Career path

"A possible next step for a network manager is either to move into an IT management
role where they would oversee a team of network managers [or] administrators, or if
they didn't want to pursue the management route, another step is to move into more of a
network engineer role where they take on more network design and implementation
responsibilities."

-- Cathy Neubauer, senior technical recruiter, Pencom Systems, Reston, Va.
