I would recommend reading this article about the IT professional titles:
IT is a very big industry, there are thousands different jobs you can get. Hardware, software, helpdesk, maintenance, database, connection, etc. If you are a computer guy, and likes play with computer, no matter hardware or software, that means you are at a correct place.
However, I'd still recommend you to narrow down your interest first, if you are currently a college student, that's great, go talk to some advisers at computer science, information technologies and digital media, or some related areas. They will guild you for your major pick, and career advice after school.
