I'm in the poor house now and I want a career in IT. What is the best way to get a job in computer networking? I've heard various things from various people. I already have IT fundamentals under my belt but now I'm working on the CompTIA A+ (which seems to be the beginning of the road in IT. However, what should I do after that to eventually get into networking? What certs do I need to get?
What do I need to do career wise to make this happen? Do I need to first start off by getting the A+, then getting a lousy $10 an hour help desk job and work that for a year? The field is so competitive right now, would the A+ even get me a help desk job or would I also need A+, Network+ and security+ to even get that far?....OR should I just get my A+ and go straight to a CCNA? I need career advice.
