View Full Version : novell certifications?
has anyone heard anything about the novell certification program for internet management/technology. it appears to be a fairly new program, and i'm wondering if anyone knows how useful it is. anytime you expand your knowlegde its a plus, but will this make an impact on my resume?
I believe that the only things on a resume that matter are an MSCE and Experience. In my opinion Novell is going the way of the dinosaur.
-So I sez to him, getch yer own monkey.
I agree with Fuz. The usefullness of Novell has gone down. Take a look at Cisco certification att.

Yup. Don't bother w/Novell. Get your MCP & work towards MCSE. Also look into Cisco if you want to get into the hardware side as well.
I say go with Cisco. Get this.
CCNA = 1 test = $100
MCSE = 6 tests = $600
CCNA Starting salary = approx $50-60K (where I am anyway)
It's just harder to "fake it" with a CCNA, though. You kinda have to have experience, unless you're REALLY good at memorizing.

Experience and knowledge count more than ANY certification of any kind. Had my MCSE for over a year and STILL looking for a good job. (Stress the word GOOD).
Well the ccna test is overly easy, so if they are palying 50-60k where you are living forjust a ccna consider it a rarity. The "inter/intra networking" industry is one that is based on experiance moreso than most of the others. yes a ccna is nice, but dont expect to get much of a job with JUST it.
