I just complete a two year technical degree, now I find that I am un-happy with my future job and that the economic outlook for work is terrible. I want to find something that will use my skills and education as leverage for an assortment of different careers. Are there website(s) that can compute this for me? could you suggest for me some occupations given a brief description (inside)...

(Continueing from original question)..
I'm good at the following:
- Programming (almost all web languages and some server side)
- Building things (I like to be unorthadox and create solutions from random ideas... try new things to make something work)
- Designing (I have a good eye to make things aesthetically pleaseing)
- Diagnoseing (I can solve complex problems most times and not get stressed out)
- Consulting (I have a long backround in internet marketing, web developement and server deployment)
My Degree: Network Administrator (http://www.academyoflearning.com/AB/Home/Programs/InformationTechnology/NetworkAdministrator.aspx)
So many careers in computers are being outsourced to india. I can't compete. I have thought about doing something in diagnostic medicine but I just got out of school and need a year or two break before I would ever consider something like that.
Are there any careers you would recommend for a person like me? (besides the obvious - web design / programming out of the question b/c of outsourceing competition)
