Hey guys I need your view on something , I need a job within 8 months and will be living on my own. I turn 18 in a few weeks. I have been extensively exposed to computer knowledge my whole life. From my dads friends being top level Networkers, Pc software specialist and programmers. I have succesfully built many of the systems my family uses. at much better prices for them than hp or dell or the like. I personally have built a 1k+ pc and have upgraded over the years. I am very good at software too , and keeping up and setting up diff networking. I can diagnose and troubleshoot many many problems. id like to credit myself to knowing a computer like the back of my hand, as it would especially appear to the average laymen.

My question and advice i need is. What jobs could i look into?
how would i go about getting it, ( i can probly find connections if needed.)
Something i could attain with no other "degree or certificate education" than a hs diploma ( i know more than my dads friends with 4 years plus for their field.)
or a very short time from of gettin such certification, like 6 months.

sorry for my very unprofessional question here( im like a doctor, i need to work on penmanship and typing proper more often too, although i can key 120wpm correctly if needed in a given scenario) But id like your guys input.

First thing that pops to mind is local online stores that sell PC parts. Some of them can offer PC assembling too, so thats a position for you. As a assistant to the main master maybe.
You're saying your dad has lot of friends in IT world can't they take you under their wing in their company/ firm?
