  1. Hi is there anyone who can help me prepare for an interview? I am pretty
    pleased about it, but cant think of the type of questions I'll be asked
    as I have never been invited to one of these before? Am really excited
    and would seek guidance....

    Be prepared to demonstrate your knowledge. A good company will want to see
    that your certification shows practical knowledge beyond passing a test.

    As an administrator and someone that hires for other IT
    positions I would agree with the previous post and work
    on communication skills. There are many IT people that
    lack communication skills and this limits there
    usefullness with in a company

    Here's hoping my bad experience will be your good advice. When they give
    you a scenario of a problem, ask a lot of questions to diagnose the problem.
    Don't assume anything just because it is a scenario question. When you give
    your answer, be confident in it, and explain in plain english, not tech
    talk. But most importantly, act like you know what you are talking about.
    (But first, know what you are talking about!)

    I had a phone interview where a scenario was asked, and the interviewer
    DID NOT know the right answer! They were merely testing my ability to ask
    questions and resolve a problem. In essence, there was no right or wrong

    Hope that helps. Good luck!

    Be confident and if needed hire a prostitute for the negotiations portion of
    the interview.
