Quick update on my life.

I have become George Costanza. I am unemployed and living with my parents... again. It's not terrible. It was agreed I was only to be here for 2 months, and I'm upgrading my certifications while I am doing it.

I'm working on getting my MS Certifications... The point of this post is that I trust you guys as much as I trust ANYONE on the net, so, if any of you are Microsoft Certified, tell me, is the official website useless. I'm used to the feeling of this stuff being too easy, but the requirements for passing the base test (Exam 70-625) seems almost too easy. Not worth the 300 they want for study material.

Can't help, I'm unemployed, living off a pension I managed to finagle from the Government and living at my parents house. I don't know anyone that has an MS, I'd recommend calling up/emailing any companies that have jobs available in that area and asking them if they need an MS cert, that will give you an idea as to how important they are versus whatever other certification you already might have. If, as you say, it looks too easy I'd say go for it, the cost might be high but at least you'll have the certification without having to do too much work for it, it might mean nothing to you but if employers want that crap you need to bite the bullet and do it.

Certifications are always good. At the very least it gives the impression of you been an educated man.

Well, I figured I go for an update here. Nearing the end of month one, I am about to take the exam spoken of, the parents aren't jumping at me ever opportunity, things are going good. Next week I'll be taking the test then looking for work. Bit of a list for a month's work...

This thread is over a year old. But if anyone needs help with resumes or mock interviews, I've had some training on giving interviews and reading resumes and what to ask or look for.

My university is obsessed with trying to get us to network so we get jobs after the degree is over. So I think that I'll be okay, but I'm not planning on looking for work for the next few months at least. Thanks for the offer however.

Well, eventually I joined a school, procrastinated the hell out of it, and now am looking for a job with barely any improvement to my credentials. At least I can say I've completed post-secondary.

Living on my own now. We'll see if that lasts.
