    I will keep this short and sweet since I'm about to hit the hay.

    I landed my first job today. Desktop Support Tech II. I will be getting a nice little bump in pay which is nice.

    Unlike most people who throw out 100 of applications. I really only apply for 1 position at a time that I feel I meet the requirements. Each time I get an interview normally two. I have had 3 different company's interested and one finally came through.

    I start in two weeks from today and I'm very excited.

    Off to bes have a great one everyone.

    Thanks everyone

    Yes I think the certs always help.

    I was lucky enough at my last job to do IT support for a small company. I think that experience is what let me land the job.
