9) Frequently Asked Questions about Technical Training:

Each month Jeff Love will answer one of the frequently asked questions we receive about computer and technical training and career development. They will be archived on a separate FAQ page on our website after several months.

Jan. 2001 FAQ:

I am a jack of all I.T. trades, but master of none. I want to have either the MCSE or a college degree to combine with my experience, and I really want to start freelancing building webpages. I already have one year of college. I narrowed the whole issue down to this: 1. MCSE is ridiculously expensive, but it is the fastest method. MCSE allows me to stay in the field (my employer will let me go to the classes). 2. Getting a B.S. degree is slow, and I can't work full time too. I read job postings all the time that request a college degree and x number of years experience, but how important could a college degree be? I mean, really doesn't it show more about a person's character, ability to follow something through to completion than it says about their computer knowledge? I realize I need some sort of certification and I'm not even sure MCSE is the way to go. I don't think college will be the way to go, but I need some hiring level opinion on the whole matter.

Answer:

I recommend you get your IT/computer degree. It does say a lot to your potential employer both about your character AND your computer knowledge. You may want to consider distance learning options for your degree. If you do want to earn your degree this way, go to this IT Distance Learning providers page: <http://www.intelligentedu.com/cat5.html>. There are many options available there to look at and review. Also, use the Course and Degree Locator page here to search for degree programs in the IT field: <http://www.intelligentedu.com/search.html>.

If you really want it, then go ahead and get your MCSE certification. Please remember though, that you may need more than this certification to get a decent job in the IT field. If you feel you must earn a certification, then I recommend one that is more valuable, such as the iGeneration certification, the i-Net+ certification, or the Java Programmer cert from Sun. You don't necessarily have to spend a ton of money studying for one of these. Here are some excellent sites to study for this and other certifications:

- http://www.ittutor.com/
- http://www.mcseguide.com/
- http://www.examnotes.com/
- http://www.masontech.com/
- http://www.certifiedcomputerpro.com/
- http://www.mcsedirectory.com/
- http://www.mcmcse.com
- http://www.examware.com
- http://www.certmag.com
- http://cramsession.brainbuzz.com

The iGeneration certification is an excellent choice if you want to get into a web development career. Check our their site here: http://you.igeneration.com/certification/default.asp. The i-Net+ certification page from CompTIA is here: http://www.comptia.org/certification/inetplus/. The Sun Java Certification site is here: http://suned.sun.com/USA/certification/javamain.html

I hope this helps you.
