One of my many duties was to support cisco switches, so I guess that qualifies as IT.
Anything from configuring switches to troubleshooting issues, to updating firmware, etc. Seemed pretty cool to me.
If I ever need to setup a managed switch at home, I am trained to do it lol.
By the way if anyone is interested in learning cisco stuff for free, just sign up for a free account, and then google for packet tracer labs.
