I got a jerb!

I would like to thank everyone for the input given over the past couple of years. I am finally getting out of the Army and I will finally be able to do my job! I accepted a Network Administrator position just outside of Austin, Texas making $66,000 plus all of the benefits. The things that draws me to the position is that I will get to learn the Server/Storage side, as well as firewalls. I was becoming disheartened because I primarily ONLY know networking, and only using OSPF. I hope this opportunity allows to me do a lot more beyond what I do in labs. I start terminal leave in 24 days, and I start this job in 26 days!

Good luck to everyone still searching!

    Congrat! That is awesome. Do you know if it will be NetApp storage? If so, NetApp offers free cert training and test for transitioning military personnel. Might be worth looking into.

    @Stryder144: I don't know what they currently use, I emailed the man I would be working with and I am waiting for a response.

    I am currently stationed on Hood and purchased a house in Temple, so my drive will be around 35 minutes. I do love Austin! I was told we use a mixture of Cisco and Brocade, but I have never worked with Brocade. Does anyone know if there are practice labs for Brocade online?
