    They become easier the more you work on tech stuff. Like the RHCSA is really easy once youve been doing linux for a while and the RHCE is just as easy. Its all about practice and doing it routinely.

    Yeah I'm not very incognito, but might as well make people work for it.

    You can get entry levels jobs on attitude alone. If you want to go in as an engineer, no amount of certs will replace experience.

    Haha yea I was that way too but Ive been using this username for a while on other forums too :D

    I completely agree with this. I got my entry level job on attitude and putting in some work to understand computers. Starting at the bottom is typically the best place to start because you appreciate each promotion or new job you get. Also agree on the experience part. There were jobs I wouldnt dream of getting but now that Ive been in the IT field for a while I can get the jobs I really want. Thats why I am going to be a trainer :D I am damn good at teaching people and this company recognized that. I never settled for breaking even in salary and always worked for a bigger bump each time. I didnt just expect to get the increase, I worked damn hard for it and proved I deserved it.

    Thought I'd bump this thread with another fine Texas product (other than my Tacoma). If you Austin guys ever decide to do a meet at this brewery - Adelbert's - please post it on the Texas thread.
