Comment: CCNA or MCSE

(See in situ)


I highly recommend using your time now to learn some valuable skills or trades, as well as building a good references. If I could start over, this is where my focus would be. Right now, "who you know" is more important than anything. Well, actually that's always been important I just never realized it until now because I was a moron.

I also love the opportunity that a CCNA or MCSE certification can get you. For a few hundred dollars (Books, tests) you can get a career that might pay around $40k to start, maybe a bit lower early on. But it tops out much higher than that. I don't know if you're technologically inclined but I believe it's a great place to start. I even did a YouTube video on it.

I also highly recommend taking a personality test! lol. I know it sounds funny, but those can help you understand your strengths and weaknesses and pick a path best for you. Don't let personal fears stop you from achieving your goals. If you have emotional issues, talk with someone about them until you start to resolve them. I know this is getting rather depressing, but young teens can let certain psychological issues get the best of them and it can make it difficult later in life to hold down a steady job. :(

Good luck, soldier.
