    Doing lots of this and I'm dying to experiment on real or virtual equipment but first need to get this CCNA cert...

    Thanks!

    2. entry-level work experience even abroad to really start playing in the game ASAP,
    3. hands-on experience/experimentation with whatever field you 'd like to follow next (just as you did with PC H/W).
    It may seem a long road ahead, but since you 've already got the nerve to earn skills and certs, I am sure you 'll find the way.

    As for suggestions, if you're into n/w and stuff, a CCNA cert never hurt anyone, is a feasible cornerstone goal for your current profile, but requires solid understanding of several networking concepts and hands-on background on computer networks & networked devices not to mention Cisco-proprietary S/W and H/W technology. In other words and more for quite a while and also try to experiment on real or virtual equipment to gain experience.

    Cheers and best of luck to you

    This is a great suggestion - the combination of these three is a great way to start an IT career.
