Entry- level IT Support Certifications

The IT Support position is generally known as the first stepping stone into a career in Information Technology (IT). So, what are the recommended certifications for one to obtain in order to enter into this field?

First, let's define what an actual IT Support specialist does every day.
The first thing that probably comes to mind when you think of an IT Support Specialist is someone working in a Help-desk position with an ear-set and microphone taking numerous calls a day. This is in fact the common work environment to be expected. IT Support specialists spend their days troubleshooting tech issues such as internet connectivity, IoT devices, or helping end-users navigate their way through specific programs and applications. They are just a phone call away or available via webchat depending on the organization. Entry-level Salary Expectations: $40,000. Not bad for "entry-level", right?
