    Hi and welcome to CF.

    Best advice i can give you is this. Forget the MCSE, start with CompTIA's A+ and then move on to the N+

    Following those, you could consider the Microsoft MCDST.

    The above are all entry level certs, and will stand to in good stead as a solid foundation to build your knowledge on.

    The MCSE is a higher level certification, aimed at people that are already in the IT industry and with a ton of experience. It can actually adversely affect your chances of landing an entry level job, as you will be seen as overqualified.

    Thanks guys,

    Aparrently I have been working in IT for over 5 years now but then did not have any certifications since my organisation (which i joined staright from University and grew through the ranks) didnt not lay emphasis on certifications but on experience.

    Since I came to the UK,i have not been able to get a job and was advised to get a certification since my expereince has been microsoft related. I then decided to start from teh scratch, ie MCDST.


    What do you guys think and advise?
