Default IT Employment

Greetings,

Does anyone here actually work in the IT field??
I am considering getting trained for the MCSA or MCSE, and I wanted to ask if these certifications are worth it?? Will they actually help me get a job or what??

Thanks

I suppose it's about your location mofugger. If you are in the UK then an electrician or (even better) a plumber is a better paying job than IT at the moment. It's all about what the market will pay.

Im a systems tech in a secondary school, I didnt need any certs but it helped my application having them!

IT in the public sector is pretty badly paid if your not a systems manager


At least it is in the UK
