IT Career Training – Land Your First IT Job
Many people struggle to get their first role in IT. It could be the lack of experience holding them back, but it's often a lack of strategy. They go online and apply for multiple jobs but never hear back. Of course this doesn't make sense because there is a massive shortfall in qualified IT engineers in roles from networking, security, wireless, cyberops, project management and more.
You need a way to make yourself stand out from the crowd and get your foot in the door for your first – entry level IT job. Once you get that, you will get the necessary experience to apply for promotion or other IT jobs. But it all starts with your first job.
Landed an Entry Level IT Job
“I used howtonetwork to get my CCNA. Before 2015 I had no experience in IT…period. I was a Sergeant in Corrections. I soon landed my first networking job, as a Network Specialist for a large ISP. I busted my butt and was promoted to Network Engine 1 on Nov 23rd, beating out many with more experience.
So I went from no experience whatsoever to Networking Engineer in less than 11 months. I have no college education and I'm 38, no spring chicken. I credit this entirely on deciding on your material when I began my studying.
In this course, I share with you all the tips and tricks I've learned over the years, including how I got hired by an IT support company straight from the police force, with no previous experience.
Worked as a police officer in the UK for 12 years and then left for a career in IT. He worked for Cisco systems and then started his own Cisco training company. He moved into online training in 2006 creating the old version of this site and in60days.net. He has trained over 30,000 IT students via his websites, Kindle study guides and training manuals.
