Engineering Jobs
by: Donald Carroll

Engineering jobs in the field of Information Technology are not about computer programming, or application development. Engineering jobs are all about the designing, building, maintaining, troubleshooting and repairing the computer networks that companies use to store and use their data. In the beginning, for engineering jobs, there is the computer hardware; the disk drives, cd-rom drives, memory, motherboard, processors, power supplies, mice, keyboards, and other parts and peripherals. There is also the computer software; namely, the operating systems, and computer applications or programs. Engineering jobs are about designing the computer networks underlying, and yet making up, the business infrastructure.

In engineering jobs, one has to work with one or more computers connected together, forming a computer network. In engineering jobs one connects network devices such as hubs, switches, routers, and other network devices. In engineering jobs, some engineers work on computer hardware and computer software and special computers used in a computer network called network servers. Other engineering jobs work more with network switches, network routers, and other telephone and telecommunications equipment. (This is the more pure form of engineering jobs.)

If you would prefer to work in engineering jobs, and work with networking devices more than with computer hardware, computer software, and servers, you would do well to pursue getting certified as a Cisco Certified Network Associate, or CCNA. (For engineering jobs, the CCNA certification is either one or two exams; you have a choice of taking it as either one or two exams depending upon your preference, at least at the time of this writing.) Your duties in engineering jobs, and as a CCNA, revolve more around configuring and troubleshooting network routers and switches, and working with leased line providers and telecommunications equipment. For engineering jobs, Cisco Systems also offers other more advanced routing certifications beyond the CCNA, namely the Cisco Certified Network Professional, or CCNP, and the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert, or CCIE.

Aside from engineering jobs, if you would prefer to work on computers; installing and fixing computer hardware and computer software, and administering network servers and network databases and applications, you would do well to pursue first the A+ certification followed by the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, or MCSE certification. The MCSE is more applicable to engineering jobs. (The A+ certification exam is given as either one or two exams; one exam is based on computer hardware and the other exam covers special software known to those in engineering jobs as operating systems. In engineering jobs, the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, or MCSE, is awarded upon the successful completion of seven individual exams. Again, this is all true at the time of this writing.)

Many in engineering jobs maintain proficiency in computer hardware, software, network servers, and computer networking devices such as routers and switches. Many employers demand that those employed in engineering jobs be able to help employees with simple computer problems while also being able to solve complex network problems on network routers, switches, and even firewall systems. Many engineering jobs require an A+ certification, an MCSE, and a CCNA. Other engineering jobs require only one of these certifications, plus any number of other industry standard certifications.


Unless you decide to pursue the Cisco Certified Network Associate, or CCNA certification, you will probably want to begin learning the ins and outs of a single computer before studying computer networking technologies. You can purchase the textbooks for the A+ certification, the MCSE certification, and the CCNA certification at almost any book retailer. YOU CAN ALSO DOWNLOAD THESE TEST PREPARATION E-BOOKS AND AUDIO BOOKS, AND TESTING SOFTWARE, FROM GREEN PLANET FANTASY THEATER'S FREE SECTION!

For engineering jobs, focus first on the A+ exam material before proceeding to the MCSE exam material and/or the CCNA exam material - this is best if you are aiming at engineering jobs. For engineering jobs, it is also a good idea to set up a small computer network at home to practice with - hands on experience with these technologies is essential to success in engineering jobs! For engineering jobs, it is also a good idea to attend a technical school to learn the basics of networking technologies, but, even for engineering jobs, you can study and become proficient with these technologies on your own just as well.

With your A+ certification behind you, you can work as a PC technician, or even as a Help Desk Specialist (helping employees with their hardware, software, and basic network problems.) While pursuing your MCSE and or CCNA, for engineering jobs, you can apply for positions as a junior systems administrator, network administrator, and even a junior network engineer. There are numerous and different titles for engineering jobs.

For engineering jobs, study your exam materials, setup your own home network that you can use to practice on, and by all means try to meet people who work in engineering jobs so that you can learn more about working in engineering jobs. Maybe you can spend a day at work with them working in their engineering job for free as an apprentice? (Companies usually do not mind extra help for free!)

For engineering jobs, create a sharp resume' listing your engineering job certifications and/or technical school degrees, and your engineering job experience...if you do not have any engineering job experience, try to get some working with an IT Specialist. In engineering jobs, though certifications are important, most employers prefer work experience. Some engineering jobs interviews have a required technical interview where you are tested on your fundamental knowledge and your ability to troubleshoot and resolve computers and computer networking problems.

For engineering jobs, once you have passed you A+ certification exams you can begin applying to work as a computer technician (hardware and/or software technician.) From there, towards engineering jobs, you can continue your studies in networking, earn your MCSE and/or CCNA, CCNP, or CCIE, and become a network engineer, a senior network engineer, a contractor, or even work as a consultant.
