    got my current Sysadmin job with a recruiter. Some are BS, some are awesome. Monster and careerbuilder blow, don't use them. It's a lot of BS from what I've seen. I think indeed and dice are king. Anyone else know of good ones? Please respond

    Thanks bro, will look into those.



    Also, I've been looking over the A+ study guide i have for the last couple days. it literally looks like this test is designed for someone who has never turned on a computer before in their life. is it worth skipping and looking into network+?

    I have 9-12 months experience in a help desk/technician job before i started working for myself in marketing. i mainly built PCs from OEM parts, os installs, configured group/user policies, ran cat 5/5e/6 cabling through offices and terminated ends and hooked up switches, troubleshoot and repaired printers, and maybe some other stuff i'm forgetting. I knew how to do most of that before the job though, been around computers since my early teens.

    Is it worth it to get the A+ or would I be better off going straight into the net+ and security+? A few jobs around here have the A+ as a requirement, but would I be wrong in assuming that they aren't going to look over net+/sec+ certs on a resume just because someone doesn't have a+?

    I've had really good success with LinkedIn. I don't have nearly as many certs as you guys or much professional experience and have had recruiters message me for jobs I'm not even sure I'm capable of.

    This is what I usually tell people. If you have more then 6 months of actual IT work, it's not worth it. 6+ months or more meaning at an actual company. If you have that, I wouldn't bother. I'm currently running without any certs at all, lol. I'm studying for my MCSA right now, but that's about it. Only thing I currently have is school and experience.

    Now, you mentioned Net+ or Sec+. What are your goals? What avenue of IT do you wanna go into? I wouldn't start any cert without knowing what avenue in It you want to go down.

    1-page resume brah checking in. No need for fluff, and oftentimes the people that read it (recruiters) don't know what any of it means anyway. You don't want to downplay your experience and knowledge, but you don't want to overstate it either. Just because you've installed Windows 7 a bunch of times and used the migration wizard to move your pr0n over, doesn't mean you're cut out to do an enterprise migration of 100 machines. Getting caught in an embellishment like that in an interview can be disastrous.

Idk what this guy is talking about, but it's so inaccurate. You NEVER undermine, or you'll never get anywhere. FYI, my source for this is my old professor. An IT manager at a huge software company that makes 150K a year and he's only 30.
    See above. You never want to downgrade yourself, but you also should not fill up your resume with a bunch of useless chit that you don't understand. Talking about your home lab and your routers and switches and stuff was all well and good back in the good old days of IT jobs, but now it's worth about fuk all. I believe you that your old professor is making $150k, as my old roommate is in the exact same position. But for every IT brah that's making $150k in IT, there's 100 of them struggling to make $60k. It's an extremely competitive market right now.

    Yeah, it happens a lot. No certs here bruh, just school and experience. I get LinkedIn people as well. It's pretty much, but it depends. If you feel like you can't do the job, go for the interview anyway. Who knows, they might say "Hey, this job might not be right for you... but we do have this Jr. Analyst gig, would you be interested?"

    Not going to argue, opinions vary. My personal opinion is you leave NOTHING out of your resume that you've done. I believe that is the BEST way to do it, plain and simple. Again, you don't have to take my advice, neither does anyone else. All's I can tell everyone is the same advice others gave me. Currently, that advice has gotten me an amazing salary at an amazing company. Even though there's hundreds of people in It struggling to make 60K, that still doesn't validate what you're saying. The people making over 100K are the people I heard that advice from.... Maybe that's why they're making that money.


    What job do you currently have? Position? How did you get it? You seem like you know stuff. Please, share it here bruh! That's why I made the thread.

    Fair enough. You're entitled to your opinion as I am mine, and that's what makes the internets great

    I'm working as a SQL Server developer/DBA for a mid-size company. I got the job after being contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn.

    That's awesome man, how do you like? I've been messing around with some like DB/SQL stuff. I had to learn a little for setting up my Sharepoint server. It's definitely nice to know. I just don't think I could sit there all day in DB's lol. I know one girl that LOVES it. She uses her DB's at home for hosting her Wordpress sites.

    i have a question for you IT brahs. I want to set my computer up to display on 2 monitors, a 22 inch widescreen asus monitor and a 50 inch samsung tv. all i want is to display the same thing on both screens but with different resolutions as having the res maxed out on the TV looks chitty and i only use that for miscing etc from bed. when i have the monitors set to 'extend' the desktop over both screens it does this automatically but when i clone it so the desktop displays i can only use 1 resolution. is there a way to set this up? my vid card is a GTX 770. i was thinking if the video card doesnt support that i could maybe somehow use the onboard graphics card to display on the tv since i wont be needing much power but again i dont know if thats possible. cheers brahs

    Right click your desktop>screen resolution<multiple displays>duplicate desktops. You should be able to pick and choose what resolution you want from there.

    I'm currently building out a DB running on AWS, which makes it easy to work on at work or at home.

    That's great man. Yeah, I may have to take a look into it. I'm not really into it like that though. I love the Sysadmin stuff bruh, it's my thing. I need to start learning more about cloud and virtual though. That's the way everything's moving. I have ESX running at work and at home, so I'm pretty much good with that. I need to learn more about Hyper-v though. I also want to break into some Citrix-type stuff.

    It's nice to love my Sysadmin job and know that it's never going away. The world will always need server-workers.

    Will they though? Platforms like AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Rackspace, VMWare, etc. might cut in on some of your action. I was a sysadmin for 6 years before jumping into SQL. I wish I had figured this whole database thing out back then, cuz if I had I'd be on a beach right now sipping umbrella drinks (no homo)

    Still going to need administrators on all of that stuff. No logical company would ever go full SaaS. Brb waiting 24 hours for Microsoft to bring back up a server from Azure. ESX? Still hosted on physical servers. Cloud platforms? Still need administrators to monitor. Literally, the only difference is that there will be less hardware. Instead of RDPing into your physical server, you're using vSphere to RDP into it.
    Let's be realistic. Some programmer could come out with something for automating databases.

    Me too bro . Virtual won't make admins go away. It'll just "shift" the way we work. IT is just GROWING. With all the new chit always coming out. I don't think any trade in IT is going away.

    I'm interested in both networking and security. Not much in the way of security where I'm from, kinda wanted to get into help desk for a year or two, then move on to the networking side for a few years before getting into security.

    Is there any reason why I shouldn't pursue both certs to begin with?

    i can but it changes both and i cant change them individually. the only options i have for multiple displays is

    duplicate these displays
    extend these displays
    show desktop only on 1
    show desktop only on 2

    the first option is what i want but i cant change the resolution individually.

    Networking goes hand and hand with security. The first stage of security starts on the network. This is my advice for you. Work in helpdesk and get a feel for how IT really is. While working, get your Net+, CCENT, and CCNA. After that, do your Sec+. By that time, you should have some time in. You'll be able to figure it out from there bruh.

    I think your issue is due to having it set to duplicate the displays rather than extend. Duplicate will obviously show the same thing on both screens like you wanted, but it's probably why you can't set the resolution individually.

    Try setting them up like this, with your PC monitor being set to the main display:



    inb4 poverty 1600x900 resolution... I've been complaining to IT to get me 2 big monitors instead of 3 small ones for months now.

    Also, I've been looking over the A+ study guide i have for the last couple days. it literally looks like this test is designed for someone who has never turned on a computer before in their life. is it worth skipping and looking into network+?

    I have 9-12 months experience in a help desk/technician job before i started working for myself in marketing. i mainly built PCs from OEM parts, os installs, configured group/user policies, ran cat 5/5e/6 cabling through offices and terminated ends and hooked up switches, troubleshoot and repaired printers, and maybe some other stuff i'm forgetting. I knew how to do most of that before the job though, been around computers since my early teens.

    Is it worth it to get the A+ or would I be better off going straight into the net+ and security+? A few jobs around here have the A+ as a requirement, but would I be wrong in assuming that they aren't going to look over net+/sec+ certs on a resume just because someone doesn't have a+?
    Depends on where you want to go? I'm part of the "no certs crew" and learned everything about networking from school or on my own.

    The place I work in is unique in that I started off as a sharepoint sysadmin, but that got old real fast, so I moved into networking and security. Now I do routing and switching along with a bunch of security duties like managing securid fobs and kicking machines off the internal and vpn network.

    A+ is only good if you want to focus on end devices if you want to work in networking and network security aim for the CCNA since the networking world is dominated by Cisco. Im currently studying for my CCNA because I want to progress further in this field.
