    I'm bit confused on choice i'm going to make whether if i continue to acquire industry qualification for instance MCSA OR MCSE or look for an entry level IT job in helpdesk or IT support.

    As i have recently completed HND computing (business) in 2009 and wishes to pursue entry level position but still looking for it, however i manage to voluntary job for a moment in order to keep my hope up:D.

    Please help:biggrin

    If you don't yet work in IT, getting the MCSA/MCSE is a mistake. The MCSA is designed for people with at least 6 months of experience administering servers in a real-world, multi-site, multi-server environment. And that's not 6 months in IT... that's 6 months administering servers, which companies don't typically let you do right after you've arrived on the newbie truck. The MCSE even more so: Microsoft recommends 12 months experience doing server admin.

    I'd recommend that you pursue the A+, Network+, and MCDST, and no farther until you've built up some real-world experience. And yes, definitely pursue an entry-level IT job.
