What's next ??

By maged67 ·
Hi All,

I?ve been working in a small accounting firm (25 person) as a Network Administrator for over 6 years in a mix environment, Novell Netware 6.5, NT 4, Linux SUSE Prof 9.

Below is my certifications and experience:

BS in Accounting
Certified Novell Engineer (CNE 3,4,5 & 6) - (7 years)
Certified Lotus Professional both Administrator & Developer (CLP 5) - (3 years)
Experience with Linux SUSE 7,8 & 9, (Firewall, Exim for email filter, Squid for internet monitoring) (3 years)
Experience with Microsoft windows 98, 2000, XP & MS Office
Experience with MS Visual Basic
Experience with Hardware assembling.

I am currently pursuing with the Novell Linux Certification.

My question is, am I on the right track? Do I need to get a different certification to find a better job? i.e. MSCE or CCNA?

Any input would be appreciated.

I think MCSE would definitely be useful. Although MS products are expensive and somewhat less stable from certain aspects (compared to opensource), at least they're widely supported. Having an MS-based certification would be a nice addition to your current stable of Novell & Lotus Certs. Once you've got your MCSE, go for CCNA. Wow... I wish I could do all that myself :)

Not sure what's available in the U.S but I believe the future direction in IT is E-Commerce and Web Development!
