Hey guys, i am from Malaysia. I am 22 years old at the moment, and posses a Diploma in IT.
After graduation (September 2010), i was working with HP (Hewlett Packard) Malaysia, under a job agency as a contingent worker. I was assigned to a WINTEL team, as a windows server administrator, solving tickets, that are within the Level 1 job scope. Nothing too technical i would say.
Just last month, i quit my job at HP, and moved on to a different company, E2 power which is a subsidiary of OCBC Bank, working in their datacenter as a datacenter operator. This job doesn't require me to have much skills in IT, as it requires me to key in a few commands to the AS400 machine to get its output on various times of the day, and to record down outputs from a few other windows machines that are running the bank's operation.
The reason why i am there, is because of the salary offered. I need the money, to pay for my certifications which i wish to take up early next year.
Now, i have no idea where to start. I know that IT is my passion and i want to make it big. I want to be somewhere respectable in the future. I want to work with Microsoft Operating Systems, so my certification lies within the MCITP path. Would it be feasible if i were to start with MCITP : Enterprise Administrator?
For my first certification, i plan to join a bootcamp, perhaps somewhere in India (Koenig Solutions) and learn there. I am aware that i could save the money and self study, but since i have 0 experience, i would rather have an instructor to be there to guide me along. Meanwhile, i'll do some reading myself to prepare for the bootcamp.
Where do i go from there? I have heard about networks (CISCO) or Virtulization / Cloud computing (Citrix / VMWARE). I couldn't find alot of Citrix courses offered here in Malaysia as compared to Vmware.
Would it be advice-able if i were to take my MCITP :EA and then proceed with Vmware certification?
What can i expect with this career choice?
Your replies would be much appreciated
