Networking Career

What is the fastest way to get into networking? I have general knowledge of networking and computer hardware but I'm not sure what direction to take. Should I go for computer science, Comptia A+, MCSE or CCNA? I live in the Seattle area by the way. Thank you

Start working in the field.

In reply to: Networking Career

Take any job that involved what you want to do. I've seen folk try to "paper" their way into a job. But without apprentice work and working in the desired field many interviewers say "that's nice" when you show them the papers.

You can find information technology jobs in each industry, because almost all industries want computer technology, software, and records storage to succeed. when you have the interest and aptitude, a profession in IT holds a lot of opportunities.

Hey, Have you made a decision yet? This question interested me because I was in a similar situation 6 years back. Then I certified CCNA & CCNP, but couldn't find a good job even after attending a few job interviews. Then my job recruiter, http://www.theexecutivewing.com/ suggested me to get certified in either red hat or MCITP. I took a little more time to get certified in MCITP as I am more interested in Windows than Linux. Then I got a junior admin job at a small company. I worked there for a year and a half. With that experience and the certifications in my hand, I was able to get a better job in a bigger company. Now I am a Sr. admin at a reputed IT company in Canada. I suggest you to get certified in CCNA & MCSE and then try for a basic job to gain an experience in the industry. With at least a year of experience on hand, you will have a good chance of developing a good networking career. Good luck!
