Find Work as an MCSE

By: Paul Abbey

One of the surest ways to guarantee yourself good employment potential in this day and age is to become a part of the computing industry. As a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, you'll find that all sorts of doors open up to you. MCSE jobs are always available, but which areas should you be looking at.

If you can qualify as an MCSE, jobs will become available in several different fields. You can target one of these fields for employment by carefully choosing the elective elements of your MCSE. Jobs in network security, for instance, will be more open to those with a security specialisation, taking a different route from those who have specialised in network infrastructure, who may be looking for set-up or maintenance type MCSE jobs.

For this reason, it's important to think carefully about the areas of work you're interested in - and about where jobs are available - before you proceed to the final stages of your MCSE.

Jobs in the computing industry change all the time as new products come on the market, so new MCSE jobs are always opening up, though you'll need to keep your skills sharp to compete for them. It's usually easy to find employment if you specialise in specific product management as part of your MCSE. Jobs of this sort can disappear, however, when products become obsolete, at which point you may need to invest in adding further components to your MCSE. Jobs with a more general format, such as server maintenance, are more likely to remain table.

As you develop your talents within the framework of your MCSE, jobs in the outside world will be continually changing. MCSE jobs are comparatively easy to find, but you may need to be prepared to move around to make the best of your MCSE. Jobs like these are vitally important to the industry, and you'll need to know that you can give them your best.
