In need of some certification path advice
I have been working about the low end of the IT totem pole for too long now and I've decided through self-study to get certified. My goal is to work in a NOC or something along those lines. I want my major focus to be networking thrown in with security. I am having a hard time deciding what to do after getting my CCNA. I decided to do my JUNO associate certification right after because it just seems logical to do so. I guess other than that I'm really torn. If I want to focus on networking should I get my MCITP or focus on more cisco certifications (CCNA:Sec, CCNP)? If you work in a(n) NOC are you expected to have Windows server knowledge? I am really a fledgling when it comes to this. I want to find somewhere to work where I can grow within the company but I need to get my foot in the door. I would greatly appreciate any advice. Thanks so much. These forums have been great!
