Default Starting a Network Administrator career.

When I get out of the Marines, I'd like to start a career as a network administrator. That's what I do now so, if all goes as planned, by the time it's time to get out, I will have:

A+ cert (already have)
Net+ cert (already have)
Sec+ cert (already have)
CCNA
MCSE
~4 yrs experience.

Anything else I should try to get to make job hunting easier? Should I be able to make decent money? Probably going to stay in CA but that's not in stone...anywhere that is better for the industry than other places?

Default Re: Starting a Network Administrator career.

You are well on your way. I don't think there is anything you'll need to do to better improve on the resume. The only thing that employers might notice is that you don't have a true "networking" degree (at least I'm assuming you don't since you are in the Marines). However, being in the Marines should be a resonable reason to not have gone to college.

Nework Admins are needed where ever there are computers. An in todays age computers are everywhere. I think you should be able to find a job where ever you want to live. You will generally make an above average salary in comparison to the standard of living in the area.
