Figuring out better cert/career path to go for?
I'm at the point where I can get
deskside support jobs, help desk tier 2 or basic network physical level field
work but I don't have enough knowledge and experience to go further. I just got
my bachelor’s beginning of this year from WGU which is good but still not enough to get me a higher level role.
I'm very divided on what sort of certification I should be specializing in. I have a ton of certs, but most are all over five years old and expired of course none matter apart from my CCNA but again it's old and I've forgotten so much.
The way I see it I have two routes I could go: renew my CCNA and try very hard to get a basic networking position. The other route is to get an MCSA and work towards an admin role instead. It seems like there is greater demand for the windows admin skill set It also seems like the barrier of entry for networking jobs is higher.
I feel like getting the MSCA would
be a better move but am unsure. Regardless I want to start working on something
soon. I will say I would like to know more about windows server since it's so
important in every place I've ever worked so I'm leaning towards that. I guess
eventually I could just do both…
