Anyone work in IT/Network Specialist type of job?

I went straight to work out of school and didn't go to College and now it's biting me in the ass. I have no room to grow and am basically stuck at 50k/year if I don't bust my ass doing overtime.

I'm thinking of going to a college in Mississauga, Ontario to do a IT/Network Specialist program which would give me a diploma, CompTIA A+, Cisco - CCNA and MCITP (I heard this one is being retired).

I guess right out of school I'd be doing help desk jobs mostly but looking around I'm not even sure where to find those. All of the job boards for anything IT it seems want 2-7 years experience and also a Computer Science degree + a bunch of certifications.

For anyone in Canada especially in Ontario or Calgary, how do you think I would find it right out of school? Hard tofind work? Salaries?
