Good.High school diploma and some certifications concerning computers and networks.
A job I'm interviewing for includes occasional travel to some nice locations.
Specialise in something then, just make sure you have the passion for it otherwise you'd be unhappy and unable to be naturally great at it.
Once you find something you're happy with, get the paperwork needed, unfortunately in today's environment, companies especially public listed ones requires it. I'm always 'defending' those I promoted (without degrees) against my HR and I'm only successfully bypassing their requirements through the strength of my personality.
One of those I've promoted was kicked off to China (when I was posted elsewhere), he was real good at communicating with customers and has superior technical skills, he could hear an engine from afar, tell you the make and model without seeing it, even diagnosed it.
But he was shiet during management meetings, can't even properly make a decent chart using a computer to make a presentation.
The managing director in China is a motherfvcking technocrat, who didn't see nor acknowledged his inborn talents and shipped him off to Africa, all because he doesn't know how to use Microsoft excel.
BUT there he thrived after he learnt some basic Excel, he's now the aftersales director for the entire African continent.
Go get urself paper up buddy and get urself mentored up, seek out a wise man within ur professional circle, he might be an azzhole but that very azzhole will defend you once u r under his wing.
