  • Well keep your head up keep studing and keep trying. We all go through hard time a trust me. Ive had 10 interviews in the past 9 months and 3 wanted references and said I would get an offer in a day or two. Well didnt happen. My experience they love…
  • Sometimes you got to leave what your comfortable with and go explore the unknown. However you make a good living are you fine with not making that anymore? You couod live in an area where thats "ok" money, butt dont think you will get that much righ…
  • There is cons to all jobs. So you got to list all the Pros then Cons and see which works best for you right now. Money is great but what else is positive about this job? So think and ask questions about this what kind equipment will you be working w…
  • If you dont have the big 3 start in A+ today. Professor Messer videos and order the Mike Meyers book. Look for any volunteer work around, put an ad out to do repair jobs. Last look for temp jobs. Another thing go back to your old instructor ask if h…
  • Longest was 89 miles one way. Took me about 1 hour 45 minutes. Good thing was over half was interstate. Current job is 50 miles one way takes around an hour. I want to leave but the only jobs I get call backs on are 2 hour drives. But I really dont…
  • Ive seen many good comments in here. I also have test anxity and its hard to over come. But like many have said get lots of rest before you go, take it later in the day, find and use practice questions. These have all helped me. Now go back and loo…

  • Its never to late. I taught for many years normally older students are some of the best. However instead of A+ why dont you start with IT Fundamentals and if you enjoyed that and want more A+ then. I only recommend that because you may not like IT w…
  • In my town the past 8 months I've seen 1 admin job, 1 OT manager job, 1 Unix job. So I drive 50 miles for a job. A little further is DOD jobs that I yet to get into. I got the experience but the clearance gets me. Im looking at an almost 2 hour driv…
  • You need to do what people once called side work. Get an ad online and do repair jobs for people. Yes it sucks, but it will teach you how to deal with people, get you experience, you will find out if you really know what your doing. These customers …
  • This is easy. To to the interview they will bring up money let them know you saw $20-23 in the ad is that number correct? Interviews are great no matter if you take the job or not. Think of it as a date. It really is the same thing. So don't stress …
  • Go read the post from the people who have taken it. It really is a hard test. Unless you have no choice but to take it in 2 weeks give yourself more time. Oh Certmaster is only worth the retake as the questions didn't help at all. Well to me they di…
  • Know the different RAIDs. Know backups. Server+ doesn't get a lot of love. So find another book or practice test see how you do. Sounds like you will be fine.
  • Well if you don't have experience in those areas Google it. With most school systems they post whatever job description they got laying around. Been in school system for over 8 years. They will ask simple basic questions like tell me a little about …
  • Try to get unemployment. Apply for those temp jobs they are all over and apply for any job there is. Take what happened and use it to push yourself harder. Do "side work" for some money. Its not beneth you at all. Also great way to learn how to deal…
  • No they don't but there is some certs like Red Hat and well they do just depends on the cert. Experience is king then degree then certs.
  • Ok I have looked through several pages now and seen very little on people transferring in with an AAS degree. Has anyone done this and have classes transfer or does most not transfer? I was thinking about applying and see what they say to me.
  • OP with no experience no degree in feild and 1 cert you need to go get your A+, do a couple of the MTAs cause they are cheap and shows your learning IT and do work for people. Heck get a business license put some ads out thats real experience and wi…
  • I have kind of left the IT field. I still work in it part-time but my new job is no longer really in IT but I do teach IT. You need to go look for a new job elsewhere or get out of the field. Maybe a break is what you need so go do something else. H…
  • Well if his AAS was in something different lets say Telecommunications the person may want to leave it on there. But if its in IT and then they get an BS in IT I can see leaving it off.
  • Main things get a book like the Mike Meyers Guide to A+ is fine. Read it highlight what you want to cover making sure it has all the exam objectives covered or you cover it somehow. Use power points to explain things like certain hardware and what i…
  • Don't feel to bad it happens to everyone. My first big break went bad still got the job. Had others that just went bad let it go pick yourself back up and research what you didnt know and learn it. I made it my goal the next time that question was a…
  • I used the Jonathon Lau book, the mega guide and read some of the Sybex Server+ 2nd edition its old but has lots of good info in it also can get cheap. If you was ok with A+ learn Raids and backups and all will be ok.
  • Look at the benefits. Does either pay for certs, training, college? What about time off? But working on 40 macs no couldnt do it unless had no choice.
  • You need to get your A+ and any tech job that will hire you. Also nothing before January 2014 and nothing after May 2014 looks strange. What did you after you got your Associate degree? What have you been doing since May? Im going to assume from …
  • Time to find a new job. It happens so send out your resume to everyone. You can go and fight but HR will cover for him and then you want have a job. Now once you get a new job go for it maybe someone will listen.
  • I used Mike Meyers book and a LeanSmart pdf. Watch the Professor Messer videos maybe get his study notes and with the Mike Meyers book you will be fine. Good luck on the 802.

  • I left IT for teaching last November so now I teach electronics and computer repair to high school students. So as for the next certification I'm getting looks to be ETA CET. I don't have to have it just want to get it. I also want to get my Network…

  • Certifications are for you to further your career, knowledge, and interest. So if its something you want and don't mind taking the time to learn and have the money to spend on the go do it. I got play with Server+. I still want to get Storage+ but g…
  • I could never hire someone who doesn't know the basics of hardware, software, troubleshooting, and very basics of networking. Cause at first you have to take the bench/help desk job. But if its to much for you to get on your own go then take a coupl…
  • You need to get an internship it will help you a lot even if its not paid its the experience that counts. Also for now do some side work for a few bucks it is also great experience. Don't never worry about what they put down on a job posting. Apply…
