Yea I cheated on all the quizzes and exams. I googled the answers and assignments. Yea this certification may not be as prestigious as the A+ but hey I finally got my first certification: the Google IT support professional certification! I just finally wanted a certification and I got one

Up next is Security+ and I’ll probably take that around may/june but I did it!!

man that shit sounds amazing.

how hard is cyber security?
depends on how deep in the weeds you really get. One spot I worked we had a person dedicated to user adds/deletes on the Windows side. To me that was brain dead easy but it counted as network security. My job at that same company was essentially "God's Eyes". Every packet of data in and out of the company globally came my way via Netwitness, FireEye, Tipping Point IPS, AirWatch, and Symantec Endpoint and DLP along with all of the proxy logs. If it happened, I either knew about it, was alerted to it, or could find it if there was an issue.

Man I gotta get into that easy shit cuz I know it takes time, effort and a certain level of application but still. Working remotely sounds amazing

Ok that’s it. I’m done waiting. This job taking too long to open a IT position. I’m updating my resume
So I did this. Made some tweaks and actually put on my LinkedIn that I was a full time help desk specialist 🤷🏾‍♂️

Started getting calls and messages about my availability and I have a few interviews tomorrow and next week. Wanna hurry up and get my help desk experience out of the way so after I get my certifications, I can get a better paying job and have 2 years of experience. Wish me luck!

You still going for any more certifications?
Just focusing on AWS. I decided to skip the CCP and just go str8 for Solutions Architect.


The cloud is the future. I advise all of you to get familiar and get certified in one of the big three

Azure
Google
AWS

So one of the interviews from last week went really well. It was virtual but they liked me and want me to come in for a formal interview on Monday and the pay is almost double what I’m currently making. It looks good when they already are emailing you about benefits, PTO and 401K right?

I’m not in. Didn’t get the job
I'm sorry to hear that man. That happens and I could definitely relate. The past 7 years that I've thought that a job I applied and interviewed for was a shoe-in. Come to find out that they moved on with someone else.

It took me many tries to get in the door somewhere. I will say that having connections on the inside helps alot.

That brings me to a topic that we should talk about: The Hidden Job Market

Please take a look at these videos for more information on what the job market is and how to take advantage:
