Hi All, I'm thinking of taking a boot camp type course to get myself\nMCSE qualified asap. What I'm after here is opinions as to it being\nworth me shelling out 3k + on one of these courses. Here's a bit of\nbackground to base your reply on:-\nI've been tinkering with PC's and servers since the mid 90's and gained\nan MCP in NT 4 workstation and server in August 99. I never got anywhere\nin the job market at that time due to (I believe) lack of commercial\nexperience and a flood of I.T newbies taken on then fired to help\ncompanies prepare for Y2K. Anyway, I finally got my first real break by\ngetting a contract in 2002 as a system administrator / helpdesk engineer\nin an NT 4 enviroment that ended September just gone. I was a project\nmanager during the upgrade of that network to W2K3 as well. During that\ntime I learnt a hell of a lot but mainly based around what the company\nneeded as and when. As a result my MCP is dead in the water and I'm\nconsidered too old for a junior type role (33) that will provide me with\na more correct training that learn as required aproach I've had up til\nnow.. My experience (on CV) is getting me interviews but because of my\nknowledge gaps I find it hard to get through higher level job\ninterviews. After a month and a half of looking for work through\nagencies I'm seriously considering a boot camp to fill in my gaps and\ngain the letters after my name that may get me the next higher level job\nI apply for but I don't want to invest it if they are just brain dumps.\nWhats your opinion?
