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

I don’t know if learning anything else will get you a job…that’s ultimately up to you – your drive/motivation, your career networking to meet the right people and have them get to know you and so on. Studying networking is certainly not a bad start. That knowledge can land you practically anywhere in IT or security. Check out TCP/IP For Dummies. That’s one of the original books I read that took my network knowledge up many levels.

Also, I have written extensively for TechTarget on the subject of IT and security careers. Check out those resources as I think they might be of value to you. Best of luck and keep us posted!

    You are working as a courier delivery boy. A basic knowledge of computer is required for any type of computer course. Hope you have. Age is not the factor, while solid knowledge/work experience is required for getting a job. Some companies ask for certificates, specially for a global certificate. You can learn network, but consider for global certification like Cisco/N+ or CompTIA etc.

Could you please tell me sir, after done CCNA and advanced level, if I should go for interview will they ask me my age and qualification? I'm afraid if I have knowledge in networking but I don't have any degree and also afraid of age. Company will take me or not - please help me.

    Age verification depends on company to company. Different companies have their own policy to appoint a person. But if you have extra-ordinary knowledge on same field, hopefully you can get job and that time company may consider your age.

    You need some basic knowledge to start a career in networking. If you have any degree or certifications already that is good. Depending on the company they may have different requirements for accepting a new employee. If you lack any computer skills you will need a few basic course if you want to look for a job in the networking field.
