What does a network engineer do?
I'm 15, I am struggling to decide on some career options. I am torn between law and telecommunications. One of the jobs I am interested in is a Network Engineer but I am not 100% sure of what they do. I understand that they setup and configure networks for clients but I have many holes in my knowledge. Do they have to know Linux, windows, mac? If so, to what extent? How long would I be in education for until I reach the qualifications required? And what qualifications do I need? Thanks!
