I just got my first real job out of college in the finance field, as a corporate trainer, training their software. But its lame, not the same as being in IT
I like training and solving problems at the same time.
I am looking for help on where to start to get certifications that may help me getting hired to do training for technology, not Finance.
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated!
I understand. After two years in school, almost an Associates in Computer Technology (only have 3 non-technical classes left), and with almost 3 years of experience, I JUST landed my first "IT" related position. The problem in IT is, that it seems if you don't know someone, you're bound to get stuck in a cycle where you are only doing "Help Desk" positions. I like helping customers, but I'm more hands on. Tech support over the phone is ok, but I like to be the one to fix it, not having the customer go through and fix it with me telling them what to do. I'm getting ready to get my A+, then my Net+, and probably Security+. Once I obtain these, I will concentrate on CIW, and MCSE. I like building Web sites also. Go to CompTIA's Web site, and check out their resources. If your starting in the field, CompTIA certs are a start. With certs in the IT industry, you should be able to land a postion training in IT. May want to try for an Assistant, or Intern postion first- to get your foot in the door.
