Networking
I am currently working as .net developer for couple of months only (as a H1B consultant at dallas, Texas). I have MCP (070-270)and CCNA (640-801) certification (1.5 yrs back)with BE computer, but don't have any networking experience. I have deep personal interest in networking field but due to job opening and my company, i came to be a programmer. Now i am confuse whether i should continue my career as a programmer or change my carrer where i do have interest (networking). Somebody please suggest me and give me wise advice to go in right path. I just don't wanna throw my CCNA cert' in trash as i had worked hard to achieve it. And I don't know the job scope (openings) and career advancement oppertunity in networking for a guy who has CCNA, MCP and BE without any experience. I will highly appreciate if any one can lead me in right path. Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

since I have been working in the computer field for years I have come to the conclusion that money should never be the reason to take a job. yeah the money might be great for a while but you will get tired of the job sooner or later. it is always better to go for what you love and let the money follow afterwards. you can do searches for networking jobs on sites such as monster.com and dice.com or if there is a local one for Dallas to see what is out there. just don’t do it at work. you might be in for a change but never short change your professionalism and always leave on good terms. If I were you I would stay until I finished my MCSE. that will give you a better stepping stone once you decide to move on.
