An IS degree is unquestionably a good degree to have these days. With it, you can land a job as a systems administrator, or move towards IT consulting (business analyst, technical architect, consultant, etc). With technology moving from a "nice to have" to a "need to have" within organizations, by marketing your IS degree, you can land many IT jobs. If you're looking to focus on a specific industry, it's important you develop relevant business or classroom experience (free online courses can even help here).
You might want to consider both the education and the government fields. I worked as assistant dean for computer hardware and software at University of California and, later in the IT department for county government. Both were well-paying and interesting jobs.
