    I went to indeed.com the favorite job board of Americans everywhere and inserted DevOps into the what field. I randomly selected 5 job postings offering large amounts of money and I am 0-5 with seeing PowerShell listed. I am a firm believer in giving advice if I think my life experiences, education, or certifications can change a person for the better. But, PowerShell.......

    is not listed on the 5 random postings I found paying large amounts of money. We are for the money. So, whatever the job/title the end goal is to move up. Here are a few of the random postings:

    https://www.indeed.com/viewjob?jk=0f...rom=serp&vjs=3

    DevOps Engineer Green Card or Citizen job - Xceed Search Partners - Phoenix, AZ | Indeed.com

    https://www.indeed.com/viewjob?jk=6e...rom=serp&vjs=3

    I am not saying if I spent 3 hours going through the job boards I would not find powershell listed. I am just saying I was 0-5.

    I would tell the original poster to look at job descriptions. Look at what organizations are asking for. That is the best advice I can give.

    Good Luck.
    I'm researching devops on techexams.

    I think this was a good response; research what's out there.

    The elephant in the room:
    How fast does what's out there change?
    You research what's out there ...
    You pursue education/training accordingly.
    But what's out there is changing/changed.

    This statement says a lot. A company that wants DevOps skills, but doesn't want to pay for it. It's nonsense when you think about it.

    Interesting thoughts (for prospective job seekers). I can only imagine what it'd be like once you're on the inside.

    When I was job searching, one question that came up for Help Desk jobs, how many tickets did you handle/resolve daily?
    I had a recruiter said their client had reps who handle 60 tickets daily.

    I was impressed.
    In my previous job I handle 7-10 tickets daily (but I did tier 1 and 2 support).

    But in hindsight, I should have asked, what do they do, reset passwords all day?
