MAKING A WISE CAREER CHOICE | by Vic Sbrega

Dear Vic,
I currently work for an IBM Business Partner as a consultant doing facilities management work. My work is project/programming and consulting. I am each facility's MIS manager once or twice a week.

Initially it would be for more money, but in looking at the top five paying jobs, consulting is number five -- MIS manager is lower. I have six years at this job, 18 years with System 36 and AS/400s, and a BBA in Computer Science. Where does one go from here?
