    you are not alone on that one but its seems as if i cant kick the door open, probably because i haven't receive a job to give me some real valuable experience

    sounds like me - have CCNA (by december) + Bachelors in Data Coms.. and i've been unemployed for a year now.. Good luck

    that seems 2 be my problem too - i just cant seem to even land an entry level job in the field! they always ask "do you have any working experience with Blah?" and i say "very little to none".. i dont get it.. how are people out of school supposed to get jobs if no1 is willing to hire the inexperienced and train them?

    Do any of you guys have experience with Linux server admin (preferably RHEL)?

    only recently have i started fiddling with ubuntu on a virtual machine.. i have some terminal experience but that is about it.. i wonder if there is a "linux server for dummies book..."

    but really, how does one gain working experience with Linux server if you cant get a job to learn or even afford the certification programs? downloading and fiddling with a random server OS isnt effective training.. seriously, sometimes i wonder how do they expect people to learn these things if noone is willing to recruit and train them?

    I can point you in the right direction for RHEL administration but at this point I can't offer a paid position based on your skill set. I would advise you to take the Linux administration seriously because that will give you the option to have a profitable freelance biz on the side if you so choose.

    i would take that up sumo but seriously.. isnt there such a thing as too much certifications?
    i'm already doing CCNA.. planning on doing CCNP and i'm also doing MCSE training.. its great to have the knowledge but last thing i want to do is bulk myself up with a gazillion certs and have 0 working experience

    the way i see it - it seems the working world will always reward less and demand more than what i can offer..

    vylle I'm not talking about certification, I'm talking about competence. In the freelance world certification can help but the main determinant is definitely not certs. The reason I'm telling you to looking into Linux server admin is because I know good Linux admins are always in demand. Most of the websites and apps are going the open-source route and having a solid skill set based around the LAMP stack is as good a bet as you can make.
