    I am worried about which direction to take in obtaining certifications/experience in the IT world. As with anyone I’m seeking the path which offers the biggest salary and rewards. I’m 25 and have no job related IT experience as of yet but am attending a tech school. I live in the Bay Area of California. What are the certifications that someone like me should try to obtain? What kind of salary can I expect to get for those certifications?

      Salaries vary by location, and trying to guess what will be hot in, say 2 years is what everyone wants.
      Here is my tip to you:
      You got the money for the certification, get MCSE, for microsoft is the leading product in the IT market.
      Get DBA from Oracle, for its the leading DB software.
      Get to know Linux, I do not recomend taking any certification at this point, but if you can afford, get a low end machine and set ip up in home just for playing.
      Finaly, go for the kill CCIE from Cisco.
      Thecertifications are in a logical order.

      With all the above your salary should be an easy 6 figures.
      you can get more info @

      Good luck!

      I believe answer 1 puts it very well but in my quest I’m throwing in a Novell Cert. for three resons. 1. It’s more secure than NT and the way the internet is going and the viruis are hitting MS and other MS problems ie, goverment, Novell is right with MS. 2. Novell has been around longer than MS and a lot of the more old fashion compains like to stick with older names. 3. Once you have your MCSE you don’t have to take all of the Novell tests and it also works the other way around.

      First. To have a baseline knowledge for your actual professinal level. Second: market needness. Third: background of basic certifications for the skill looked for. & Fourth: To be well informed about (obvious)

      Keep attending school my friend your half way there and soon the doors will open. Your previous work experience is the most valuable certification. Employers like to have credentials but in todays job market it appears they also are willing to exercise good faith in helping you obtain your rewards. That means take advantage of learning all you can and the interested Company that brings you on board will already have your future waiting for you.
