As you have have discovered, I’m not especially big on blogging. I lead quite a mundane (or at least I think so) life compared to some other people I know. That said I feel I should share at least something new!
I had some advise from a few of my closest peers to which the “jist” was the need to not sit on my arse and at least try to better myself. As of a few days ago I made the decision to look into the possibility of gaining some professional certifications. I am looking to start a career in the IT industry and, partly because of where I live (and my unwillingness to just get up and move) and my lack of industrial experience … its not going very well.
I feel pursuing these certifications will not only aid me in the career department (eventually) but the knowledge and mindset of “I did that” would boost my view of my own self worth and improve me as a person.
Admittedly this is all talk currently. As some of you know, most of the time my “bark” has no “bite” to put it bluntly.
I am hoping to achieve the following certifications:
Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS)
Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure Configuration (70-642)
Windows Server 2008 Active Directory Configuration (70-640)
CompTIA Linux+ (Exams LX0-101 and LX0-102) – with the aim of furthering this to LPIC-1
