    Hello everyone,

    I am thinking of taking these courses and certifications:

    Service- and Support-Technician (CompTIA)

    · Network-Specialist (CompTIA)

    · Linux Administrator (LPIC-1)

    · Microsoft Desktop Administration

    · IT-Service and Projectmanagement – ITIL® & PRINCE2®

    · CCNA

    I come from the brewing industry, so I have no work experience in IT, however I have been fiddling with networks, hardware and linux for about 20 years.

    What do you realistically think my chances would be in getting a decent job after this?

    Thanks in advance

      Are there jobs in your area that ask for this?

      Sometimes folk get “sold” that such training gets you jobs. Sadly I’ve never seen that happen for over a decade. Today it seems so much harder so what to do?

      Go to your local college and meet with a counselor to see what it would take to complete any degree in your target field. Without the degree, today’s HR don’t talk to you.

      the courses and certification you mention all are reputed and have greate scope in the industry so these certification would definately can increase your chances to getting hired but remember getting only certificate is not sufficient you have a good grip on one of these skills and have a ability to work in a team.
