Optimistic comment from all. At least we can all be serious for once. Again, good everyone agrees IT is the way forward. But there's a cliche'. Most young graduates would tend to look this way as a means to an end, then you will hear people make comments like can I learn enough Neyworking in 6 months? Or can I become a programmer in 6 months....

Not wanting to scare you, but there is a reason good programmers, web developers, data analyst, software designers are in short supply. The trade is hard (no sugar coating this)

You don't dabble into this as per hobbying. You go into it whole hog like your life depended on it. You don't think 6 months, but let's say within a year of serious study, you may have made it to an intermediary state. Then your journey begins

Learning in this field is never ending. But the thrill and excitement is super rewarding. With all these said, if you think you can commit just two hours everyday with eyes glued to your screen for the next 2,3 years, then this is for you.

To get started, don't waste your time on roadside training, they are too watery and offer no value for money paid. Instead, explore courses on udacity, coursera, edx, udemy for absolute free. Make quora and stackoverflow your next love and in no time, you'll find your rythm.

Welcome onboard.

If someone can help me out with a job I'd pretty appreciate it. I have two years experience on networks and servers, I have my CCIE (R&S) written, MCSA (server 12), MCSE(cloud platform and infrastructure), MIcrosoft Specialist Azure, MCP (office365) MCTS (System Center Configuration Manager& INTUNE), CEH (version 9), CSCU. I'm also a graduate of Electrical Electronics Engineering.

I've tried applying for jobs online, I've gotten nothing so far. I tried Linkedin Networking, gotten nothing too. I'm trying physical Networking. I'm young and can adapt.

Really?
