I am soon going to be looking to finally getting into IT jobs like i always should have. I am currently living in Michigan where if you read about this sorta thing jobs blow. I am in about a month going to move to Virginia for a number of reason one being the availability of these sorts of jobs, especially of the starting variety. I do have a high school degree and some college. I have a very good understanding of computers windows and networks. I want to begin to work on getting certifications and finish up school and all that. I have already began to apply for jobs as well. What i want to know is what the pecking order should be for certifications and what i can be doing on my own to make sure i am able to first get a job and ultimately make a successful career out of this. Thanks in advance for any help in this question i trust this community to help me in this endeavor. sorry about the semi wall of text!!!
