I will be completing my Management Information Systems degree in a few months. I haven't really had time to think about certifications because I've been working on an off in an unrelated field and have been taking college classes nonstop without any vacation semesters for around 2 years.
Now that I will be done with my degree I will have a lot more time to focus on certifications. I know the best way to get hands on experience is through work. But it is very difficult to find jobs in general, so I will take what I can get even if it isn't in IT.
I need some advice about what certifications to seek. Logically, project management certifications considering my major, but I don't think those are something I could just jump into without any experience. I am not scared by the technical side of IT, I've studied A+, Network+, CCNA by myself before college and in college as well. Security+, Java, VB, Oracle, MCSE topics in college but at an introductory level, probably not as in depth as what I studied by myself. I am least passionate (ok not at all) about programming, but I can learn if I have to.
I guess MIS people usually go into ERP? SAP, Peoplesoft and the like? And IT management? All I've read about SAP is that the best way to learn is to already have a job where they have SAP implemented so that would be difficult right now...
