I have passed the CompTIA 220-801 A+ exam & am taking the 220-802 the week after next to then hopefully have the CompTIA A+ certification.
I have so far been unsuccessful in obtaining employment in the technical support field (1st line). Most job ads I see state 'Must have Active Directory / Windows Server 20xx experince'. I've watched training videos & tutorials, but how does one get experience in the first place, if I can't get experience?
I've got the Network+ book already and would like to get into networking, but can't seem to get a job as desktop support let alone a job on the network admin' / security side of things.
Are there other certifications I should really be looking at to increase my chances of finding gainful employment in this area? E.g. Microsoft.
