Hi there folks, been lurking on the forums reading all I can but I was looking for extra advise. First off I'm new to IT as a career but not IT in general. I've always worked with computers/networks/etc since I was 10 (27 now) but never got into it professionally. I'm currently an IT Support Specialist (I guess Desktop Support more specifically) for a call center. Between the 3 buildings we occupy I would say I'm responsible for 300+ machines/users. Now I was lucky to get this position as I made a good impression with my boss as I have no certifications or college education to back up my abilities. He is encouraging me to get the following certs to better myself and help open more doors for me later on.
