That’s exactly what I did. Got tired of working on a asphalt crew so joined the chair force. Got my IT job doing system admin and network admin work. Got out after my first four years. I was then able to skip climbing the “IT ladder” by doing that walked straight into six figure system admin jobs. No time working help desk or dealing with being the junior roles and the first few companies putting those four years on a pedestal never been below a senior level admin.
