First DoD IT job- lots of downtime!
Hello everybody. After completing my Net+ and SEC+ a month ago I took an IT-mid job at a military base near my house last week(I recently got out of the military and this is also the same base I was stationed at while serving so its cool to be back as a civilian). I have not a second of experience in IT but they still hired me as a mid level desktop support guy (I am grateful and fortunate for this opportunity to say the least), on top of that, all the folks I work with seem awesome. My only thought is that I work a shift in which there is so little to do, so I decided maybe I could start studying for a new cert or start studying programming as it also seems cool. Any suggestions? CEH seems interesting. CASP fulfills DOD 8570 level 3 so maybe this cert plus a year in desktop support could open some more doors? Any thoughts on what certs make sense are appreciated.
