    Hello, This is my first post here as the title suggests. I am studying for my bachelors degree in network technology and engineering and so far have completed 22.5 credits. This is a career change for me. I have been in the restaurant industry for the last 7 years and am currently sous chef at a wine bistro. Now I am just driving hard into this industry, picking up as many certs as I can - so far I have net+ security+ A+ and Server+. My next goal is MCITP EA in 4 months. I am currently working on server 2008 network infrastructure which I hope to be getting in about 2 weeks.

    In all honesty stop with the certifications, too many certs and no experience will go against you where finding work is concerned.

    You really should not be going for MCITP EA if you're not already in the industry. It took me at least 9 months to get my MCSA, MCITP EA in 4 months with no experience and working as a chef is very aggressive. Even if you manage it, its likely to be looked at with suspicion by many employers.
