What certifications should I take?

By joe91104 ·
What certifications should I take to help me find an employer who would sponsor me? I am presently working on my MCSE.

What other certs should I seek that are in high demand by employers? What would be the most logical next steps? Network Security certs?

To impress the employer the A+ Network+ are good choices
Other certs to look into would be CISCO

I would concentrate on what you want to do - and then get good at it, and then the employers will be there at the proper time.

Let's say you wanted to go into Network Security.

I'd start learning about networking - through the CISCO Track - start with the CCNA, etc - and then obtain the CSS certification (Cisco Security Specialist).

you may want to take classes through the SANS institute www.sans.org

The premium certification in the Computer Security field is the CISSP sponsored by

www.isc2.org This is a high stakes certification, but all the certifications worth owning are.

The A+ won't do much for you in terms of meeting your goal to being a network security specialist.

I mean - Java is popular, but if youwant to do network security, then taking a Java certification course doesn't do you much good.
