Considering returning to the Field : looking for advice

By ·
I mainly worked in Systems Administration from 1997-2003 and have done contract work and a few gigs since 2003 . During that time , I held MCSE and CCNA certifications and the MCSE(NT 4.0) was helpful in landing me the position that I held from 2000-2003. The MCSE does not expire , but I don't know It would help alot if I got current ... maybe MCITP or something .

I'm considering going back to hunt for a job , but seems like I ought to get some more certifications . I was considering learning more about cloud computing , red hat , or maybe renewing my Cisco cert.

Once I'm into the position , I know I can catch up/ grow into it and advance like I did before.What do you think ? I just want something to get me seen by someone looking . I know certification isn't by any stretch of the imagination an easy ticket , but I like tech , I like working with people , and I know I have the drive to do it. Just wanting some ideas on which way to go .

Thanks for anything you feel like sharing. You can also email me at at gmail.

Getting back to work in the Technical Field

by kenetiad In reply to Considering returning to ...

Im also trying to get back into the Technical Field and I need a little guidance. My last technical position was from 1999 - 2001 and I took break from the field in 2002 and since then I've only worked clerical jobs so I could be around for my children. Now that they are older and in school Im ready to get back in that field. How can I found out about the latest technology and be ready to peform a technical interview without feeling like the Interviewer is speaking GREEK. PLEASE HELP!
