Hello, I have joined seeking some career support. I am currently working on changing career to become a Network Security Administrator. I have passed the CCENT certification which took me 12 months studying evenings and weekends. I have spent the last three months studying for the ITIL v3 Foundation exam which I am due to take in the few weeks. My question is which qualification should I go for next... CCNA Routing & Switching or MCSA? I have been applying for jobs 1at line tech support jobs, but have not managed to secure a post yet. I have also contacted local ISPs and IT companies asking for work experience. :-)

Thank you, I am planning to go for the comptia s+ as it's not vendor specific and I have heard that it covers a few topics that are not covered by ccna security. Following that I will complete the CCNA Security. I hope to have secured a 1at line role at this point. Time will tell :-)
