Hi, Oceana:
I will be delighted to speak with you and hopefully be able to provide some good advice. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you think that I can be of any assistance. Always happy to help!

The IT area has lots of different career paths. You might want to conduct some informational interviews with different career professionals. If in the informational interviews you find a path in the IT field that would help you narrow the career. This will also help refine your knowledge.
