I would explore entry-level IT analyst positions supporting hardware assembly, HELP desk support, and telecommunications roles. These are optimal roles that will help you learn the basics and you'll have growth potential from there. In addition, you might identify and area you want to pursue for additional study (i.e., Bachelor's degree).

There are lots of IT-related jobs you can pursue with an associate in electronic and computer technology and by researching companies of interest, you will be able to better learn about what jobs are out there that align with your skill set. Utilize sites such as LinkedIn to research various companies to learn about any openings that might align with your background.
If you are unsure of what exact path you want to pursue, you can also look into companies that have rotational programs that allow you to rotate departments within your function of interest while staying within one company.
