unfortunately that is the best way. You want to get your foot in the door so that you can look inside that organization and try to move up. But never stop looking and make sure that you get into any area networking groups so that you can build your social networking ring. The best jobs are found just because you know someone at the right time. Keep working on it and don’t lose that certification.
I agree with buddy. Starting off in either help desk or tech support is the best way to get into the field. Without experience getting into a network position is going to be very difficult.
That is actually not the best way to fine where you below guy, You need to go where there is networking jobs. But if where you have there networking department, then quickly start going around.
Let me share the an experience. I also have the A+, N+ , CCNA, I was also faced with that same problem, but overcome it .
