I am migrating to Canada, and as most of my certifications need renewal, I am confused as to which path I should follow to build my career there. Please advise as to the following questions:
1: Should I do CCNA first and try to go down the Cisco path?
2: Should I take the HP UNIX admin 11.0 exam, and then try to earn an OpenView certification?
2: Should I update my ASE, and try to work with SNA or clustering?
Please give me the benefit of your advice, as I'd like to restrict myself to one path for the future and build my expertise in that path only going forward. Honestly, I do not want to be a Jack-of-All-Trades. I am an Electronics Engineer (EE) by training as well.
Because you'd need to get an MCSE on Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003 to upgrade your ASE, you might have an easier time of it if you take the HP UNIX route, then head for OpenView. But all of those areas are in reasonable if not high demand, so either path should lead you to employment--which I assume is your ultimate goal.
Best of luck in your upcoming cert adventures. I urge you to pursue the path that interests you the most!
Thanks for posting.
