Looked over once again


Today I was introduced to the new IT guy at my job. He seemed ok, but he took the position I applied for a couple weeks ago. I work for a vehicle plant and you don’t need to know much for the position. Hell, our last IT guy majored in film! Besides venting I ask, what can I do to secure an entry level IT position?

This isn’t a forum on employment. Even if it is IT related.


Sorry. I was just looking for support. Spirits are down right now…


IT guys typically have the lowest level of skill. You want to seek something higher like sysadmin or network engineer.

Go get yourself some certs… all tech companies have boners for certs, and they’re stupid easy, at least the A+, Sec+, arguably Network+ are… they’re each about $300, but are half off if you use a *.edu email to register or something. GL!



I’ve been for my Security + exam, but most forums say its worthless unless you want to get into the DoD( which I don’t ). I aspire to be a security engineer but I don’t have the experience. Where do I actually start to build a career. Like cert path with no experience…

Thanks for all the help guys. I know this may be out of place…


If you have no experience, a cert is the best place to start.
