    Certifications are generally there to prove your existing capabilities and as such if you don't have that experience you shouldn't really be taking any further exams.

    Stick with the A+, read up on ITIL so that you have a better understanding of what it is and why it's used and then start looking for work, the worst thing you can do is gain too many certifications at this early stage of your career and have them plastered over your CV, your lack of experience and too many certifications can actually do you more harm than good because you wouldn't actually have the experience to back up the certifications and most employers would expect you to do so.
    Certifications: CNA | CNE | CCNA | MCP | MCP+I | MCSE NT4 | MCSA 2003 | Security+ | MCSA:S 2003 | MCSE:S 2003 | MCTS:SCCM 2007 | MCTS:Win 7 | MCITP:EDA7 | MCITP:SA | MCITP:EA | MCTS:Hyper-V | VCP 4 | ITIL v3 Foundation | VCP 5 DCV | VCP 5 Cloud | VCP6 NV | VCP6 DCV | VCAP 5.5 DCA
    WIP: VCP6-CMA, VCAP-DCD and Linux + (and possibly VCIX-NV).
