    I'm a newbie still to IT. I have Associate Degree in
    Computer Systems and Network Technology. I am having
    extreme difficulty finding a job (career) due to most all
    companies requiring experience. I have worked as a
    computer operator using the MVS operating system that
    utilizes MVS and Jes2 commands. I am currently on a 2 week
    temp assignment on a helpdesk. I have a customer service
    background and am really enjoying being on a helpdesk. I
    feel that a helpdesk position is what I'd like to do,
    considering my background with dealing with customers as
    well as my ability to take ownership of problems. I am a
    hard dedicated worker who is capable of seeing the big
    picture and am very eager to soak up any training that I
    can. Does anyone whos been in the field awhile have any
    advice on what I can do to make myself more marketable for
    the It pro field preferably Helpdesk Tech. Thanks for
    advice you may have
