  • Hi,

    From desktop support you might move on to Server/Back-end support after some time.

    Windows Server 2012 might be a good starting point, have a look at the MCSA Server 2012 certification:

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/mcsa-windows-server-certification.aspx#fbid=nTemxTEp9eN

    If you have done a training on XenDesktop 5 administration you might also consider to achieve the certification for this.

    Getting work experience is Always difficult, if your current employer also supports Windows Server back-ends or Citrix environments then you should discuss with them if there are any possibilities to learn on the job or have a more experienced support engineer assist you in learning Citrix or Windows Server platforms on the job.
