    When not in college, I'm an assitant produce manager at my local Shaw's. Money is okay, but having seniority over 6 kids about my age is definately worth it.

    I've been a payroll tech for a bit over 2 years. Overworked, highly stressed, with mediocre pay. At least the company pays for my benefits and I get weekends/holidays and vacation pay.

    Experience is the best credential you can have to get into IT. A lot of low to mid level IT people get in without any degrees or certs at all based on experience alone.

    you have to do something... walk around? "supervise"?

    anyway, for the IT thing, experience as in getting some certifications working at like shops and stuff and just moving up from there?


    oh yeah and Esol, selling rocks suck ass. Knew a couple that did it. Sure made hella money, but their life sucked. Usually sellers end up being users. Youre constantly being bombard with addicts wanting free samples, hook ups, or "suck your dick for a cheeseburg." many carry more than 1 gun and are paranoid as fuck. oh well.

    The A+ cert MIGHT get your foot in the door someplace, but starting out it's all about getting in and staying as long as possible, repeat as necessary, till you find a place that hires you into the upper ranks.

    A+ and/or MCSE might get your foot in the door, but don't count on ANY cert to actually land you a job.
