Thanks to all the help on resume advice I was able to secure a sys admin roll. Right now the learning curve is massive but I feel like I am adapting well.

Thanks guys!
Currently enrolling into WGU's IT - Security Program. Working on LPIC (1,2,3) and CCNA (and S) as long term goals and preparing for the Security+ and A+ as short term goals.

    Agreed. I am 2 years into my first admin role. The first year was just learning a lot and soaking it all in. I took notes, had a journal, spreadsheets, it all helps even to this day. Congrats and good luck.
