Career Advice Needed
Hello I am currently in my early 20's and graduated with my bachelors in IT back in June. I have worked my butt off and am now working as a systems engineer at a pretty know company down in florida. In my position I have pretty great opportunities to work with VMware ESXi, touch on networking, storage, and windows servers. I dont know why but as of late I have been doubting what path to take in my career. I enjoy working with VMware and feel that working towards a cert like the CCNA can benefit me either now or in the future to better understand the environment I work in but I dont feel like networking is the path I would like to take. One of my fears is to study or learn a technology that can easily become outdated and make me less marketable. I have started just barely touching upon and learning on my own things like open stack or trying to learn python but again I cant seem to find myself focusing on one thing because I doubt if its what I should work on. Any advice is extremely helpful and I would like to add that one of my plans was to get the CCNA to demonstrate to my upper management that I am capable of getting a cert to later propose they pay for my VCP class to get my VCP cert, my job reimburses us for the certs we get. I would like to add that I have felt that cloud or virtualization technology has always interested me but I am aware as well that it may be a good idea to look into getting familiar with linux and other operating systems other then Microsoft related OS's.
