I'd really like to take you up on reviewing my resume and giving me
your advice on how to start my IT career. How can I directly contact
you? I greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

In microsoft.public.cert.exam.mcse, (E-Mail Removed) climbed on a soapbox

First, we need to work on that reading comprehension problem.

Yeah I know, but I really don't mind. I do it all the time now for my
students. As for the contact method I have an older gmail account I used for
anonymous stuff and will use that for filtering out the real emails form the
bad.

You can contact me here: ireportbadpeopleATgmailDOTcom

I may sound arrogant at times, but that's only because I'm always right.

Get a job, requiring a security clearance, even if it is
a janitor. Then take that, your newly minted certs, and
apply everywhere you can and get any entry level IT job.

I have seen some real idiots with clearances and very
good jobs. Thus, they can't harm anyone or anything and
they are almost always guaranteed a job in D.C. as long
as they don't screw up. I worked with two guys that had
clearances, one was brilliant, the other was an idiot,
and they both slept on the evening shift or at
night. ...and were paid quite handsomely.

For non-cleared positions you will have several hundred
resumes submitted, some not even relevant. For cleared
positions, it is harder to find qualified candidates.
