Recommendations with certifications

cms819cms819 Member Posts: 26 ■□□□□□□□□□
I currently have A+ Net+ Security+ CCTRS ( cisco certified tech routing and switching) CCENT. I am currently working on my CCNA and plan on getting (in the following order after my CNNA) - ITIL foundation, CNNA Security, CCNP

I was wondering if this was a good selection of certifications. My current goal is to work in the field of networking (maybe as a network admin, or in network security.)

any recommendations would be great!

    If you want to get into networking, youre defo on the right route!

    I would consider the VCP6-NV, as that'll get you into that area too!

    You're in the right way.
    If you got CCENT, is time to get some experience. Look for NOC jobs or support jobs heavy on the networking side.

    I have about a year experience in troubleshooting routers and switches as a technician with cisco vise engineers pretty much telling me what to do. I was mostly doing Hardware replacing parts,modules,etc and a little bit of configuration including loading IOS and configuration files. I always wanted a job in IT wasn't specifically sure in which field. Through my job experience I finally fell in love with networking. I am Planning to land a Network Admin Job after i get my ccna.. I am worried however because of my lack of experience , and keeping all the information that I have been studying in my head is not easy. I hear they train you on the job... hopefully they do.

    Can you get some work in the network industry while you're pursuing the certs? Real-world experience can be extremely valuable to connect your certification knowledge to, and employers will understand that as well so you'll have a better shot at a great job.
