I have 8 years experience in IT and also a BS in IT and working on a Masters in ISS. In addition to this I have A+ and Network+. I suffered a couple of layoffs and now I've been relegated to teaching in an AAS program which pays squat that is around 38000 a year. I made more money right out of college then this. The highest offer I recieved on a job was a whopping 43000 a year. I turned it down not worth the time to take a contract like that. I live in Baton Rouge LA and don't really care where I live as long as I can make more money then this and have a decent cost of living. It is horrid to work for these low wages. Any idea or suggestions that might help. I can't even get a job as a low level Jr. Network Admin. I even tried a network admin position nothing has broke for me in almost 2 years. Just one contract after another

bummer sir,
What do you want to do in IT? Cisco stuff in hot. Your certs now are pretty basic. They are good because like your degree, they will last you a life time. What you need now is some money making certs like MCSE or CCNP ( although CCIE is the certs for gods, it will take some effort and time on your part).
What type of IT work did you do in the past? and then again what do you want to do now for IT work? This will help guide you with what to learn and what cert to get.
Getting the MCSE and CCNP will make you very marketable I am sure.

Read the rules, please. We do have a rule against bumping old threads.

While I appreciate your effort, please don't bump threads that are more than a couple of weeks old.

Hi Jipstyle,
I will looking at the form rules again and could not find the time frame concerning when a thread is old. What is the time period and where did I miss it.

Thanks

guyvii,

Resurrecting old posts falls under Rule #1: don't make posts that suck.

It isn't a rule set in stone because there are times when it is appropriate for an old thread to be brought back. For instance, if a member was sick and made a post stating that he was going into the hospital, it is fine for him to bump that thread again when he gets out.

Bumping old threads that haven't had a post in weeks, though, is generally frowned upon. If someone really wants an answer to their unanswered post, they can call attention to it within a day or two. If it hasn't had a post in weeks, it is best to assume the thread is dead.

Thanks! :)
