So I finally did it. All the hard work and studying and school is finally paying off.

I just got accepted a position as a Network Engineer for a healthcare company. NOw all I have to do is finish school and all my goals will be fulfilled. Thank GOD! I'll get the chance to boost my skills and career and get a 16K salary increase. :D:D:D:D:D
There is no place like 127.0.0.1 BUT 209.62.5.3 is my 127.0.0.1 away from 127.0.0.1!

    Well I got my A.S degree in Computer networking about 1.5 years ago. I have been working pretty solid low to mid level IT jobs for 2.5 years. I will graduate with a B.S in Data Com. at the end of this summer and I have the two certs.


    A big part of it was a friend that helped me get the job. He was moving on and helped me prepare to take his spot. I couldn't thank him enough. The friend I speak of, I met on this forum and he saw how dedicated and driven I am and decided to give me a chance. So thank you steve and thank you techexams!

    Most of my skills are from my current job, school, and self-study for certs. Thanks guys.

    Well ya CCNP is still a big goal of mine. But CCNP isn't like a longterm goal i guess. Becoming educated and getting a meaningful career was my lifelong goal. I will definately complete CCNP when I graduate.

    I am way to early in the game to speak of CCIE. One day CCIE, one day.

    Congrats, it's always good to see the hard work pay off.
    We responded to the Year 2000 issue with "Y2K" solutions...isn't this the kind of thinking that got us into trouble in the first place?

    Congratulations! icon_thumright.gif

    Remember that you don't have to spend the entire pay increase on your home lab upgrades this year.... you can spread it out over a couple years :D
