"Thanks for the advice! I passed both halves of the A+ exam last week, while there seems to be some debate as to if it will be helpful on my resume in the future, I found the content useful. I am now studying for my CISSP exam and much of the A+…"

"I do recruiting for a firm that does IT Staffing, and I would agree with Jay and others that you should go ahead and get the A+ for this reason. I've had to disqualify some candidates for several positions because they never got around to…"

"If you want to get some certs you need to think where you are going with your career. Right of the bat I can tell you not do the A+ cert, it is a really basic cert. Just check websites or go to your local bookstore, order a coffee and browse a book…"

"You need to decide on what course to take. If you want to stick with programming, get certs in those or learn more about the languages you work with or learn others. Programming and Networking are two different sides to the IT coin."

"I would study for the CISSP as it will only help you in your current position.  As for brushing up I would just read some books and talk to people.  Get to know the basics of the hardware and it's capabilities.  Same for the…"

"Good point, however, do you think it would be worthwhile to take the lower lever courses in order to gain a better understanding of their work? My current position is software development and my education is mostly theory so I have little/no…"

"My thought is that if you want to manage then take courses managers take.  Program Management (PgMP) once you've completed PMP and CCISP.  If you have enough credits in accounting and finance get your CPA.  Also consider…"

"Network+ is pointless if you are doing the CCNA. CCNA covers Network+ and then some. A+ is good to have for basic stuff, I read the material but never took the test. Security+ is your call. Cisco, VMware and Microsoft are the three big certs to get.…"

"Thanks for bringing this thread back to life. For now I have decided to focus on certifications, as my employer will not pay tuition until I have been employed for 1 full year. I plan to get A+ (test Saturday) Network+, Security+ then CCNA.…"

"If your employer will pay for it get your PMP and PgMP.  I wouldn't recommend going for your DBA unless you intend to teach.  Use the time to network, learn the business side (budgets, finance, etc.); you'd be surprised to find…"

"If they are paying for it - sure. But consider an MS in something or go for professional certifications like from Microsoft and VMware or some other technology you work with. Technical know how is very important. Need to understand what is going on…"
