Hi all
I'm 1 test away from obtaining my MCSE:Security 2000 & 1 test away from my CCNA

I'm trying to make sure that I have the proper qualifications for a $70K per year job. However, when I look at the current job opennings, the qualifications they list are not all the same. For example: A lot of them require programming. But they don't say which programming is required. I'm worried about spending money I can't afford to learn one type of programming language and then lose a job because they require a different programming language skill. This example holds true for Certifications and other skill sets

Can anyone tell me what skill sets I need to be qualified for this type of high paying job

I'm looking into Network Admin or Network Engineer positions. Anything network related as long as it pays $70K per year. That is the goal

Help,, Help, Hel

Thank

Mike

Coupled with your Computer Science or equivalent degree, and about 3-5 years
experience administering, designing, and implementing global networks, I
would think that being proficient in C++ or Perl and a CCIE should about do
it. You should not need more than those fairly basic skills to comfortably
land a $70,000 PY slot.

Add in a CISSP &/or a CCSP and you should be golden.
Otherwise, check into the Truck Driving School of
America. CCIE's used to make 6 figures. Nothing is
guaranteed anymore. Thank Y2K for that

Well guys
Before Y2k, I was a Jr. Admin with no certs making 50k

If you look at the salary charts for these types of jobs, they say 60-70k is do-able. Those sites "say" they get these figures by interviewing companies with different employee ranges.

According to those charts, Every computer and network job I've ever had has paid me about 10k less than the minimum on the scale

My experience is 10 years in the industry

Nevertheless, I've looked at job opennings that list starting pay. The jobs that pay that much are out there, but their list of qualifications vary and are not specific enough (it says programming, but doesnt say what type

this Industry is really difficult

Dear everyone,

I would like to invent something that would make me
£££Million's so I can retire young and live the dream...
The only problem is, I can't think of anything to invent.

Can you post ideas on here for me please, because I
really can't be arsed to do any work for myself.

Thanks,
Jon

You want a job making $70K per year? Here's the answer: Be worth $70K per
year.

Listen, there are so many things within this industry that books and courses
will never teach you. The reason they don't state what programming language
is required is because some languages are better suited for some solutions
than others. They probably don't want you to be able to write a mission
critical application if you are the Network Admin, but would expect you to
be able to write a script to do a basic scheduled task, and that script may
need to be written in VB, Java, ASP, PHP, etc,... So they aren't looking for
someone who is certified in a language from reading a book, but someone who
has a good understanding of algorithmic design and could do a quick learning
job of the appropriate language. Most inexperienced people can't do that.
And this is what it comes down to: until you have about 5 years of
experience, unless you are some sort of prodigy, you are not going to make
$70K as a Network Admin, and your not going to get a job as an Network
Engineer.
