New to the forums - just thought I'd start by saying hello!
I'm actually currently working on going forward into the IT Career path. Computers are something I love tinkering with and always have. If I wasn't a typical teenager thinking with one part of my anatomy and messing around at school I'd have got some qualifications in IT sooner!
Never too late though - I've done an A+ course (although I have not sat the exam as I'm going to wait and study up for the 900 series), and I've recently done my CompTIA IT Fundamentals certificate. Short term plans include doing the MTA 98-366 Networking Fundamentals and some security certifications.
Anyway, hope to see you all around and learn a thing or two while I'm at it!
