  • Hi, Rachna.

    The MCSA certification for Windows Server 2012 is a fine certification for Windows Server administration.

    Going for a .NET programming certification means to get a C# or HTML5 Specialist certification or even one of the big MCSD certifications. It's a completely different way of interacting with computers.

    If you are truly interested in programming in .NET and possibly becoming certified in it, I recommend you take some of the free training offered by Microsoft, such as Microsoft Virtual Academy, Channel 9, MSDN, and the ASP.NET website.

    Here are links to those resources:

    Microsoft Developer Network (.NET Documentation): http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/dn338450
    Channel 9 (Free Video Training): http://channel9.msdn.com/
    Microsoft Virtual Academy (Free Video Training): http://www.microsoftvirtualacademy.com
    ASP.NET Web Site (Web Programming Training): http://www.asp.net

    You will also need a code editor. The editor usually used by .NET developers writing C# code is Visual Studio. You can get a free version of Visual Studio (Visual Studio Express) here:

    After you create a few simple applications, you will need to decide which technology you enjoy more. Do you prefer server administration or computer programming? You have to follow your heart or the money will never follow your career.

    If you are interested in becoming certified as a .NET developer, you can learn about the exams here:

    **Just one more thing, Rachna. People earn certifications for many reasons. Some people continue to update their certifications because it gives them greater job security or an increase in pay. Employers may need their employees to be certified so thire companies can keep their Microsoft partnership. For people entering into the IT field or for others looking to make a job move to another company, an updated certification can be helpful. The most that these job-hunting folks (like yourself) should ever expect from certifications would be more first interviews. I just want you to keep your certification expectations realistic. No one gets hired just because they are certified. A lot comes down to personality, experience, and interview skills.

    I wish you he best of luck!

    Best wishes, Davin Mickelson
