RogueHart Posted December 15, 2010 Share Posted December 15, 2010 I started doing some contract IT work recently around town (setting up networks, securing networks, fixing printers, cleaning computers, upgrading systems, etc, etc, etc) and its hard for me to find much work. I was lucky enough to get to know the ex mayor's wife and got some work for their business and right now thats the only source of income for me. They are great connections to get work around town but its really hard for me ton find work with no certifications or degrees to my name. I just need to save up enough cash to cover myself for a month into college until the GI bill kicks in. After that i'm home free. But it would be a lot easier for me to find work to save up if i had something to put on a resume. I was wondering what kinds of certifications would be a good idea for me to try and pick up. Money is a factor in what exams i can take but if the certification is good enough and would provide a good resume boost then i dont mind investing the cash. But with the knowledge the people have around here i think quantity tops quality in this town. so the cheaper the better. I really want to work on networks, but im going to college for software development once i can afford it. So im open to working in pretty much anything as long as im working with computers. preferably no hardware work as i dont have a lot of experience with it. I'm better on the software end. Can work with windows and linux. and have a mac to learn on, though i cant stand mac. anyway i appreciate any suggestions. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
