Linux system administrators should consider getting their MCSE. What? That’s correct. You might also consider buying a Mac Mini desktop and practice with it at home. I’m serious, so take this recommendation to heart.
In the past, I have written about the crazy job market for Linux system administrators and help desk professionals. Hiring managers have problems with hiring pure Linux professionals. It might fall into the area of myth, but hiring managers believe those myhts. They believe Linux guys who say they don’t mind working with Windows will then turn around and leave within a short time frame. Secondly, Linux technologists with previous experience with Microsoft will find hiring managers leery of their Windows skills. Those hiring managers probably have a point.
