This is a field where it is possible to get a job without a degree, but the degree opens many more doors. Once on the job, you can only keep it via excellent performance. So don't talk the talk unless you can walk the walk.

Most people get an Associates degree from an accredited college or university. Some business schools also offer acceptible diplomas (of their own), but before you go that route be sure to research the businesses where you live to make sure that they honor that business diploma. Some technicians hold bachelor's degrees (especially in electronics or computer science) and have ended up as technicians due to the economy. However, don't worry about competing against four-year degree holders (for jobs) because often employers consider them over-qualified.

I started as a seasonal employee for the State during the summer off season while in college. I then got an offer to become full-time and took them up on the offer and stayed there for about ten years. I then left to go into the public sector and worked for a few firms over the next twelve years...some jobs were three month contracts and as much as 5 years. And in this time my pay more than doubled.
