    I sure hope someone can give me a little career advice. I have no IT
    experience. I have a BS in Special Education and was a teacher for 14 years.
    In January of 2005, I began taking courses with Strayer University Online.
    I enrolled in the AA in Computer Info. Systems program. I've almost
    completed that degree, but have realized that I have no "expertise" in any
    particular area, nor do I meet the requirements for any IT jobs in my
    area.....not even entry-level jobs. I think that going for the Associates
    degree was a huge mistake, but I'm almost done now, so I plan to finish. I
    want to get a certification in something, but I don't even know where to
    start. Which certification is good for a beginner and will make me most
    marketable? I have a very strong dislike for programming. I'm leaning
    toward the database end of the IT field. Any suggestions?

  2. How about MCDBA? I started with no experience in this field as I was just a
    software support and software tester for my company. I began working with
    my DBA and now I am on the path of studying to take my tests.

    Hey i am in a company doing very basic database cleaning and need to do
    exams leading to becoming a Microsoft Certified Technical Specialist. I need
    to be experienced with SQL Server and fear these 3 exams are not for
    beginners so i need a few stepping stones before i jump into those. Know
    anything to get me started?
