I am 24 years old and i just got my A+ Certification. I get my Associate's College degree at the end of this semester. I am looking to get a job with my A+ and a letter of recommendation from my college professor in the next couple of weeks. I have no IT working experience, I can not decide on a logical certification to pursue next, I am not very interested in Networking, Security, or Programming. I want to work on broken PCs (software and hardware) what is logical advice for me?

Also, what can of jobs can I expect with an A+ with no IT work experience? I should also say I do not care about becoming "wealthy" I just want a good stable future, but I will always be open to acquiring more knowledge

Thanks guys.


Was an MCSA certification through Windows 8.1 would be a logical choice?

    I haven't kept up with Microsoft certs but it sounds like a server admin might be a fit for you. I wouldn't spend too much time on Windows 8. I would go with Windows Server 2012 I believe the MCITP has you do one Windows 8 type cert. After that maybe learn Exchange and VMware?

    Maybe try some repair shops? Or Geek Squad? You might want to try out a help desk position.

    If at all possible start working on your bachelors degree, better to get that out of the way now.

    With no experience, it will be hard for you to get a help desk position since it's so saturated. The progression of automation and virtualization has made a lot of old systems technician careers expendable/obsolete. Basically, a help-desk session is now talking to someone halfway across the world while they figure out what went wrong in Chef/Git on your hypervisor of choice. To be successful in todays' world of IT, you really need a good grasp - if not, solid comprehension - of computer networking and/or programming/scripting. Realistically speaking, you should try Geek Squad or a local computer repair place to learn all you can and find a niche that you really can pursue with passion.
