Now what? If you are looking to enter the field of IT, there are many paths that will get you in the door. First, ask some basic questions: Who, What, Why, Where, When, Why, and How. When you have those answers, ask Now what? If you just want to get in the door, get A+ and Network+ certified. Those certifications will get the attention of many employers and get you in the IT door. Be determined to work hard and excel at your chosen career. Then ask Now what? one more time. Your answer may be one of the vendor certifications that I will be discussing in upcoming articles.
I look forward to your comments on the InformIT.com discussion board and via e-mail. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
