I just completed a Computer Science Associate's degree this month and I’m thinking about specializing in Network Administration for a Bachelors when I go back to school next fall. I have a couple of industry questions I’d like to put out there and request feedback. 1- will I need any other certifications to be a more qualified candidate when I graduate? 2 - What are the pro’s and con’s of the network admin field? Thanks
I have been a Carpenter for over 30 years, I am now looking to get into Network administrations, I have no experience in this field. How does one get a start in this field? any suggestion will be appreciated.thank you in advance Pete
