I am looking to break into the IT field - a penny for your thoughts

By lauren ·
HI, I am currently a home networking consultant working part time. My background is in sales and I just don't like it anymore. I clearly have a strong technical apptitude and I love what I do when I am working (troubleshooting problems, etc). I have no formal IT training except that I have worked with IT departments in different capacities selling routers to them, network printers, etc. I have learned alot about desktop PC's and troubleshooting through practical experience. I am considering going through a certification program that would give me real world experience through an internship and I would then complete the following certifications: A+, Net+, Security+, CCNA, MCSA. I have the time and money to complete the certifications. The question I have is would I be employable after making this investment in certifications? I would take an entry level position after completing certifications....Would any IT managers hire me? Any advice that you can give me would be most appreciated.
