    Might be a pain for you now m8, but it could well be your "foot in the door".

    I guess these are the considerations you need to think about in the short term.

    IMHO :D

    I have to agree with Gav. If you have little experience and brand new certs, you are not going to command a large or even decent salary right away. Remember, for every job you apply to, you are competing with a lot of other people trying to break into IT plus all the more expereinced IT folks looking for a job.

    I lost my first career over 5 years ago and pursued IT as my second career. I'm working full-time and still don't make quite the base pay I was making 5 years ago...and that's not even taking inflation into account.

    I'll get there, but it'll take time. I take on side jobs (mainly writing with a smattering of other types of work) to supplement my income. To get into IT, you're gonna have to bite the bullet for awhile.
