New and green
I'm glad to be a part of this community. I'm a high school teacher (non-tech) with a lifetime of informal software, hardware and networking experience. I'm also at the beginning of a career shift to the technology industry and am looking for any advice or input regarding career paths and certification.
At the moment, I've begun working toward the CompTIA Network+ certification, as it seems the most useful, yet general certification available. Of course, at this stage in the game, my career choices are so wide open that I'm having a hard time focusing in on exactly what type of IT job would work best for me and my situation.
Anyway, like I said - glad to be here!
