Best route in to Virtualization and a career in IT
I been lurking about the forum and the internet but just get overwhelmed with all the information and options, like most people that post here I've got a bit of experience and looking in to getting some qualifications.
The problem is what's the best route and qualifications?? Just wondering where i should start MCSE MCITP ? Are workshops worth it or should I pace it out in my own time with home learning?
I'm particularly interested in moving forward in to the Virtualization side of things, deploying networks in citrix/vmware/hyper v etc. I think i read in one of the other posts its best to get familiar with Microsoft server first then move in to Virtualisation
I'm passionate about technology i been breaking and fixing computers since I was 12. (I'd do it for free if I didn't have to pay the bills!) So I think i'd be a quick learner and pick up things quite quickly.;)
My current situation is I'm working as an IT Systems Administrator which is a mixture of paid and volunteer role at a well established local community radio station. I've been there a year, I started out as a junior techy but i've taken over responsibilities, as the IT head left unexpectedly. So i'm left to manage a bunch of servers, one of them is a 2008 server with 40 clients. I know I have quite a few gaps with server management skills. So the only time I really learn about it when something goes wrong lol!
I'm 25 years old and poor :( i'm looking for possible funding (i'd ask the radio station but they have been hit by all the spending cuts).
Education = BSc Multimedia + NVQ3 AVCE IT
Look foward to what you think guys and girls :rolleyes:
