    You could start by applying for first line help desk support, in other words an entry level IT job to get the experience.

    GBL recommended to get certified which is a great way to stand out from others who are not certified. The A+ and Network+ are great certifications to have when you are starting out.

    Obtaining the two certs can be done through self study, you don't need to sign up at a local college or other training providers. Self study will also cost you a lot of less money and less headache.

    Good luck.
