Pursue MCSA Win 7 for entry level helpdesk?
I'm trying to re-enter IT after a being let go from the last IT job I had.That was 2 years ago. Since then I got the CCNA R&S and A+ certs. I've been applying to random Helpdesk jobs and mostly never hear back or I'm told they chose someone who has better qualifications. I think my past job history plus length of time since I last held a technical job (I'm using that term liberally, while there was a ticketing system and break-fix type work done, it revolved entirely around an in-house SaaS app they deployed to client sites) is hurting me. Right now just to get my foot in the door I'm looking for a more traditional entry level Helpdesk job anywhere. I was thinking about going after the MCSA Win 7 as it's still offered until 7/31. I hope to learn a lot more about windows in the process as I don't feel I know much of anything about the system. I chose to certify in Win 7 in spite of its age because its still at ~33% marketshare and I know it takes a long time for most businesses to getting around to upgrading. Plus I'll lose my chance soon if I don't take it. But this is a guess since I don't really know what's going on. I was planning on pursuing win 10 afterwords.I'm asking if this is a good idea or a good use of money/time.source for win 7 usage:Desktop Windows Version Market Share United States Of America | StatCounter Global Stats immediate goal is to just get a full time somewhere.
