Recommended Career Path

In my current job I am the System Admin, I work as an accountant, and also provide some Business functions. I need to decide how to move forward with my career. Can anyone offer advice on certifications or other training. All aspects of computers interest me so I am having a hard time deciding in what direction to procede. I currently have no certifications, but Bachelor of Science in the three areas above.

Need more information

by Prefbid II In reply to Recommended Career Path

I think you need to give us a bit more information. You have 3 BS degrees (accounting, buisness, and computers)? That seems a bit odd.

At this point I don't think additional training is the issue. I think you need to decide on where you are going in life and what it would take to get there. If you like the sys admin stuff, then it is experience that you need -- the kind of experience that is not going to come from doing part time sys admin work. The certs are only good for getting your foot in the door. Certs without experience is just a piece of paper.

So, if you like doing windows admin, start looking for a full-time windows admin job and work on the certs at the same time. But certainly don't get a network cert if your interest is in Windows admin.
