Hi everyone, completely new here so.. Here goes my question. I'm currently taking a diploma of Cyber and Digital Security, which covers on networking and ethical hacking (all very lightly). After this Diploma, I'm planning to head more into the network and security side (following the steps of my diploma) The certs I aim to achieve after this course, is the Network+, Security+, CCNA or CCENT, MCSA Security, then finally MCSE. To be brutally honest, I have no idea of what kind of jobs I can get __(perhaps a network administrator job)__ but I'm just hoping to get these certs so I can get a good start on getting a good job. Can anyone give me advice on which certs I should aim for first, and whether I am taking the right certificates?

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

Net+ will probably be the easiest and take the least time to prepare for. It will give you confidence as you continue on your path. Good luck to you!

Go CCENT / CCNA… covers all the networking basics and leads you to other certification tracks. (Plus Cisco certs are more in demand)
