While working as a server repair technician in a local repair firm, I came across a job advertisement that required CompTIA Server+ along with 2 years of experience. I had 3 years of experience and lots of knowledge about servers. So I decided to go for Server+. When I passed the exam, I applied for a job of server administrator in a prestigious hotel. After initial interview, they asked me to show my skills in server management. I passed their test and got the job that offered higher salary and lots of benefits. I was preferred over people with more than 5 years of experience managing server environment. I guess I should thank CompTIA for giving me a chance to advance my career.
