Looks fine. Modify the skills to reflect the job you're applying to,and it will help give you a chance.

If you're currently a student, I'd add that to the education section with your expected date of graduation.

Thanks a lot, its nice to get positive feedback once a while. And I'll add the grad dates 👍

How do you know if the chip will give good range?

Falable 1 point

U can get the small USB type with short range, or the USB with antenna. The best type is the adapter card that slots onto the pc motherboard with antennas. Just browse amazon for 'wireless adapters' and u will find what u need.

If it is not immediately clear, best not to include a summary. Summaries are for established skilled professionals with clear career goals. Like someone with a decade of experience and a philosophy trying to be a director.

They'll figure out from the timeline that you are looking for parttimeing if they read the resume. And if they don't no summary would have convinced them anyway.

So would u say that its ready as it is? And that I can start sending.

I'm starting uni this year, and I'm looking to get a part time job to support myself. When I try to write a summary, my mind goes blank. Could someone write me something generic that I could copy.

I know it sounds lazy, but I seriously struggle with this part about myself. It's probably to do with mental situation, but I'm working on that too.

It depends what you're using the PC for. For gaming multi channel usually doesn't make a big difference. The exception is if you have an APU, such as the Ryzen 2200G, since the GPU uses system memory it will have a performance increase from the higher bandwidth.

If you are using the PC for memory intensive workstation tasks, video editing, etc. there may be a huge performance increase with multi channel.

Also mainstream cpu's/motherboards only go up to 2 channel, even if there are 4 memory slots. So 2 x 4GB or 4 x 2GB is still 2 channel. Only high end CPU's like Threadripper or i9 have quad channel.

I’ll just stick with 1x8gb for now

77xak 6 points

Since the board only has 2 memory slots, I would go with 1 x 8GB. This leaves you the option to upgrade to 16GB later if you want to.

Alright thanks

I think I read that the previous cert will expire 6 months after the new version is released.

When an updated exam version is released, the older version is still available to take for about six months before it is retired. This allows folks who were already working on the certification to complete their studies.

Once you pass both A+ exams, you're certified for three years. The exam versions are not related to your three-year certification timeframe. An earned certification does not expire because a new set of exams has been released.

Never wait to get certified. There numerous advantages with having an industry certification in your pocket.

Thanks, I'll get working on it.

I would just take it now. I have not heard that by releasing a new version of the test it will invalidate your cert.

And don't feel bad about CompTIA, everyone starts somewhere. Their certs are recognized and will get your foot in the door.

Thanks, I'll get to it

Oh... dude.. no.

This build will blow the doors off of yours. Like it's not even close. Plus the config I've built has twice the SSD space. 120GB is simply not a lot. And don't worry about the compatibility warning on PCPP. The very first BIOS release for the motherboard I've selected had support for the given CPU.

Don't go to a trade school. Go to your local community college.

After you finish an Associate of Science from a community college, transfer to your local state university. You will be considered a Junior. Finish your Bachelors degree.

Go to your college's career fairs. Apply for internships. Work at the campus helpdesk. Make a bunch of friends and network with people.

That is literally the best possible way to spend the next 4 years of your life, and a tremendous start to a long and successful career.

I'm 22 and want to start IT, at first I thought to get comptia and help desk but now I'm thinking about doing Hnc. BTW I live in Edinburgh, if that helps

I don't think we can GET that for you since all the info that points to any substantial info is either missing or too ambiguous.

The processor for example is used on a good number of systems from 2013.

I just assumed you had meant a proper application not a phone only app. It's pretty good icon set anyway.

You'll need to put the TV on a different subnet. The easiest way is to put it on a separate VLAN, though most consumer gear isn't going to be able to do this. Ubiquiti stuff can, but you'll need to have a solid understanding of basic networking first.

One suggestion would be put parental controls on your TV, so after X time it can't connect to the network. Though that will cause some problems when you want to use it later at night or something.

Falable 1 point

I'm actually studying my ccna so I could probably pull it off if I had the right gear, only I don't think the reason is enough to justify it, seems kinda silly honestly 😅 thanks for the info though

Blowmewhileiplaycod 2 points

If studying for a CCNA, you will soon want some gear that's at least a little more configurable most likely.

Take a look at some ubiquiti stuff.

Falable 2 points

I'm definitely interested in customising my home network but I will hold off until I have a thorough understanding of it all.

Part of the reason you hear about it is, in Packet Tracer they do alot with serial cable connections because it works in the program. Ethernet has some bugs in packet tracer when connecting routers together. That's about the only reason :)

Falable 1 point

Yh I tried ethernet between two routers with a static route, maybe I misconfig or maybe error, I plan to try again later

Firstly I have the most recent cert guide and it's still referencing the lease lines and serial.

Secondly you should really be using the newest books because things are always changing

By default all port’s native VLAN is 1. It stays that way unless manually changed. Native VLAN changes can only be done on ports configured as trunk ports. (Using “switchport trunk native vlan x” - where X is the VLAN number).

Someone with no professional IT experience is going to start off like everyone else, as a tier 1 doing basic helpdesk/desktop support. In which case certs like A+ or Net+ actually make more sense to pursue early on or before applying since they relate to that role. Either way, you have to find other ways to stand out on your resume and during interviews to set you apart from the dozens of other people who will be applying for the same position and likely already have the previously mentioned CompTIA certs (and maybe more experience).
