The Helpdesk can be a place to get started, but the real goal is to land a networking related job and to not stay in any Helpdesk role for long. If you are having trouble landing your first networking related job, then the Helpdesk can be an option just for you to get started. We recommend applying to Helpdesk jobs if you aren’t having any success after a month or two of job searching.
