    Hmm, what is the other job?
    What kind of advice do you need?
    Are you just looking for another job and you want to improve your qualifications before looking for another job?

    Sorry, but I don't get it.

    Also, what is: "3. Active Directory 2003 currently migrating to MS Exchange 2003"??? You know they are two different things, don't you? As a matter of fact, Exchange 2k3 works with AD. However, you can't replace AD with Exchange.

    I think if you could throw some networking skills in there, you could get a nice job. Otherwise I can't see you getting anything besides Desktop support. However with some networking skills, you could get a nice Net Administrator, System administrator or even a *nix System Administrator.
    Good luck.

    IOtherwise I can't see you getting anything besides Desktop support.

    With the Netware, GroupWise, Exchange, *nix experience he has listed, he is way over qualified for Desktop support.

    Is this your first job or did you have an IT related job before this one? What is your education background?

    Sorry, I meant one of those Tech Support Jobs... not specifically Desktop Support.
    Since he doesn't have any networking skills, then I can't really think of something else.
