I am in the process of getting my Computer Information Technology degree, and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as what classes/areas would be beneficial to take, that would help me when I enter the tech workforce? Also, what certifications do you think would be most beneficial to having a successful career in IT?

The above is good for managing a server and networking therein.

 

The below is good for programming:

C++ (for programming), and Javascript (good for website development et al.).

So let me make sure I'm getting the right ones:

 

CompTIA A+ Certification

CompTIA Network+ Certification

CompTIA Security+ Certification

 

C++ Programming (Would like a link to check out certifications)

JavaScript (Would like a link to check out certifications)

 

Windows (has lots of certifications)

 

Also, I have several elective classes, I can take random classes. What areas do you think would be more beneficial to take?

What are the available electives? Because taking art appreciation and pottery, while good, don't necessarily help you in the field of computer technology.
