You should have asked for advice BEFORE switching.

Very much the same as in any field of endeavor. To begin with, learn your strengths and weaknesses and how they match with what you are trying to do. Then learn to focus. Your question is very much like 'how can I learn to paint?' Paint what? Frescos in the Sistine Chapel? Great masterpieces? Houses? Cars? Battleships? Fingernails and toenails? I know this doesn't seem to be much help, but no one can be of much help until you learn enough on your own to focus your questions and be fairly specific. But then by that time you will probably have answered most of your own questions. Otherwise the question is too broad to have an satisfactory answer.

^^ I'll add: Learn to know what you don't know.

I don't know where you are or your employment options. Here where I'm living in Southern AZ in the states there are very few entry level positions for system admins and such after much searching. The few that are available require 2+ or so years of on the job experience, even for entry level. In the last 4 years I had one job in the field and that fell through due to ethical concerns. They just aren't out there unless I'm searching the wrong places. Combine that with what I'm guessing is low turnover, and the good jobs are few and far between for newcomers. When a place finds a good sysadmin, I'm thinking that they will keep them till they die or retire. They invest a lot to get a sysadmin for their stuff, only makes sense. YMMV
