Just curious... what kind of academic degree do you have, or are working towards?

Any regrets?

Graduated high school in 2005 in academics and provincial IT diploma (took IT courses that were offered in my school, and the provincial government of Manitoba recognized it and had a special program where it can also be a diploma with the requirements, making it a dual diploma).

Took Electronic Engineering Technology at Red River College, before dropping out of that and switching to Electronic and Network Technician, 3 years later. Finished the course last August at Red River College. It's a one year certificate course.

Working on my Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) 640-802 certification, and A+ certification.

Oh definitely. Right now, I work as a field service technician specializing in unified voice and data communications systems. In other words, a telecom technician, and having that certification would definitely benefit me, especially when working for a very small company that has clients ranging both private sector and government agencies.

cisco is good, a+ is a waste. get msce instead of a+.
The new MCSE certs don't relate to his career direction (the old MCSE doesn't either). I personally would go with CCNA & Security +, as it will open doors for DoD positions. I have A+ & Security+, each can easily be completed in 1-2 months.

A+ isn't a priority, but it's a nice to have.

Security is also a great thing to have, but my main focus at the moment is leaning towards VoIP and unified communications, given the nature of my current job.

My A+ cert was useless. Too many people have them [in my area]. I applied for one crappy job position that paid low and there was 40 applicants for that same crappy job. I got the certification for fun though, so I had no loss/regret for getting it.

In my humble experience, you are better off knowing people who can get you through the door.

Exactly. Your degree doesnt even matter, you can end up in a career that has nothing to do with your degree just as long as you know the right people
