  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I recently got my CCNA and am very good at it. I went looking for job, everywhere I had applied to ask about server configuration, active directory or group policy...Microsoft to be precise...even is the job title is CCNA.

    I have decided to take some Microsoft exams, but don't actually know where to begin that will tally with my CCNA.

    or should I continue with my CCNP...?

  • Continue on CCNP is an excellent choice.  However, most IT shops today need and require someone with knowledge and experirence in more than 1 networking technologies.  With Microsoft, you can obtain various levels of certifications depending on what your goal is: email admin, network admin, network design, etc.

  • In the longer term, if you can be both broad and deep -- certified and truly knowledgeable in multiple vendors/platforms/products -- you will maximize your earning potential and employability, as well as most likely your job satisfaction as you tackle more and more complex and interesting problems. So, both! I would love to have a CCNA myself.
