    Ask yourself the following questions: What do you want to do? What are you good at (and want to do more of)? What's fun to you in the field of IT? Once you determine what you're about and where you want to go, you'll develop the clarity needed to be successful in IT...if you stick with it.

    A+ is a good cert, Comptia offers great cert you just need to know what you want to do in the career field. A+, Net+ and Sec+ are the basic certs that a IT needs to put that first foot forward. Help desks are great good to work at but are generally a hard job with a short turnover rate. Working at a help desk will give you a great picture to see how a network is put together and administered. What a help desk lacks is that specialty knowledge that other techs get that build and work on equipment like, servers and switches. I would break down the I.T field into 4 different categories PC support/Help desk Networking Server support Security
