I am in the middle of getting my A+ certification and my CCNA. I have been installing and configuring Cisco routers and switches while working for a sub. I didn't have these certifications until now. What types of jobs can I apply for? I also installed nortel and voip systems, done POTS line ? So again I ask what jobs can i apply for?

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

Depending on how many years of experience you have either a junior or mid level network admin, or telecommunication admin.

You might want to check into jobs with your local hospital. Leverage your telephone system experience. Hospitals usually have a huge telephone system, and then once in the door, you can pick up experience with computer related jobs helping out the IT staff. You would be in a good position to move into IT. Get your other comptia certs as well!
