Tech Support / Networking Career Opportunities

  • Tech support is often the place to start for the beginner because of opportunities for work experience. It is the most obvious career choice for the A+ certified professional. If tech support meets your career needs, go for it, as a permanent career in tech support can be both financially and professionally rewarding.

  • But Tech Support can be used as a stepping-stone to other areas of IT. The first Web Developer of Jidaw.com started out in Tech support before venturing into Networking, Programming and Web development. He now provides Web services on a global scale.

  • Inspite of the huge and steady demand, knowledge and experience rules the Networking industry, due to the extreme amount of competition currently out there. 

  • Most network admins work their way up through a technical support position. However, some are still able to find an entry-level position as a junior admin.

  • The dynamic nature of the Networking world (the mother of the Internet) is obvious for all to see. In the huge multi-vendor world of network systems, products and manufacturers, industry trends point to even more growth and developments.

 

Making your Certification Effective

All these benefits will only come to you if you can make your certification effective. This starts with having the right attitude towards certification. Certification is a tool not a magic wand. 

IT certification is NOT A "CURE-ALL". Your Certification will have no value if you can't perform and learn on the job. Period!

What is your value? Let people see value in you NOT cost! Perceived value is often used to assess us rather than real value.

An IT Career is about demonstrating that you are a knowledgeable professional. To get real value from certification you need to avoid the top 5 certification mistakes: 1) Choosing a certification because it is hot, 2) Underestimating the real cost of certification. 3) Lack of Self development after getting certified 4) Poor preparations 5) Unrealistic expectations  

Furthermore, how do you package yourself and your certification? Certification should be used to market your abilities and your value using soft skills. Most importantly, to get real long term value from certification you must have a career focus. Learn more about having a career focus, soft skills and other related issues here.

DISRUPT THE STATUS QUO!

     
1.

Ideas are not enough. You must be action oriented to improve your future.

 

 
2.

Don't just think but act. You get results not only from thinking but from acting.

 

 
3.

You have ideas. You want to achieve. You want opportunity.

 

 
4.

But what are you still doing in your comfort zone? The comfort zone is a dangerous place.

 

 
5.

"I wanted to", "I was going to" cannot put on a light bulb, not to talk of moving you forward.

 

 
6.

Aren't you tired of hoping and criticizing? Stop defending status quo that locks you down.

 

 
7.

GO on the offensive now with IT Education and Empowerment.

 

 
8.

What is the use of ideas without action?

 

 
9.

Start becoming the achiever you deserve to be.

 

 
10.

MAKE SURE THERE IS NO STANDING ROOM FOR EXCUSES.
