Do you have experience with storage technologies? Are you skilled in designing and creating infrastructure solutions? Are you a partner of EMC? If so, you may be the perfect candidates for EMC’s own Technology Architect certification track. EMC makes earning a certification in any pathway easy, affordable, and highly educational, and here it is no different. The variety of certifications one can earn is large, and the amount of coverage of important solution building technologies and environment is spot on. Whether looking to obtain skill validation of one or many technologies, one or many environments, you can create a program that fits your schedule and desires with EMC.
As a technology architect, you will be responsible for analyzing and planning, designing and building, and supporting information infrastructure solutions. You will work behind the scenes and behind the desk, working directly in the solution creation and process and speaking with customers while delivering and deploying quality and efficient solution plans that are based on specific requirements. Earning certification in multiple technologies can allow you to architect solutions involving multiple technologies, leading to more sales opportunities, greater income, less down time, and technical autonomy in the workplace.
Because of the intensity of work as a partner (coupled with exclusive benefits and greater rewards), each specialist level certification will require candidates to pass two exams that are specific to the technology architect track. Specialist certifications can be earned for CLARiiON, Celerra, Symmetrix, Connectrix, and VNX products. Prior to that, participants must first prove their skills with an associate certification. The E10-001 or E20-001 exam can be taken to earn the Information Storage and Management certification (for individuals interested in the backup/recovery track, the E20-005 exam can be taken). Meanwhile, expert certifications are available VNX, CLARiiON, and Symmetrix.
In this track, candidates should also look into the Content Management Systems Architect or Content Management Application Architecture tracks. Both offer associate and specialist certifications. Although training from examtrace is available, participants should come in (especially before earning a specialist certification) with a good amount of on the job field experience to ensure success.by Read More
Are you considering going back to school as an adult? A growing number of adults decide to go back to school in order to get a degree to propel themselves towards a more financially rewarding career. However, going back to school is not as easy as it appears, and neither does it directly correlate to a higher income. Read on to see what factors you should take into consideration as you make your decision.
Adults going back to school need to keep their capabilities in mind. Avoid overloading yourself with schoolwork, housework, and your job. You definitely will feel overwhelmed and stressed at the beginning, but with time you will gradually adjust to your more “happening” life.
Be sure to reward yourself for small successes every once in a while to keep yourself going. Don’t look at your whole “back to school” venture as a huge hurdle that needs to be overcome. Instead, while keeping your mind focused on the goal (your diploma!), tackle small hurdles like assignments and projects; consider them to be small successes as well. Keep yourself in check; it’ll be impossible for you to fail.
And perhaps you’re a little worried that you’ll be the oldest one in a class of youngsters. Just concentrate on your studies and you’ll be fine.
Remember when you went to school as a teenager? School was pretty much your whole life. Attending school during the day, writing papers and studying in the evenings and perhaps some family time after that. But now as an adult, your time needs to be effectively divided between school, family, and your job, at the very least.
Consider if going back to school is worth the impact on your relationships. If you have children, they will inevitably need to adjust, especially if you are going “back on campus” and working part-time. While you’re in school, your child may need to be put in day care as well; be sure to take account of all costs involved. Think about taking online classes if it will be better for your relationships by allowing you more time at home.
When you take an extra responsibility upon yourself, it’s essential that you plan your day effectively. When you add “school” into your schedule, some other areas of your life will have to be cut down. Consider the advantages and disadvantages, and make your “back-to-school” decision wisely.
Schooling costs money. That money has to come from somewhere. To make calculations easier for yourself, come up with a budget that encompasses “expenses” versus “income”. Consider how much of your savings you will spend to make ends meet, and if your savings are even enough in the first place. Are your savings and a part time job enough to support yourself, your education, and your family as well?
If you are going back to school to get a degree that will boost your career and paycheck, make sure that your investment makes sense. Consider the cost of your education and your subsequent debt in relation to your potential salary after you obtain your degree. If you end up with a positive yield that’s worth the trouble you went through, great! If not, reconsider.
Returning to school can help your career and open up new doors for yourself and your family. But make sure you’re ready for the commitment first. Put significant thought into your decision to return to school. Look through the costs, advantages versus disadvantages, and make sure you discuss your position with your family. Take it a little at a time, and you will definitely succeed. Go for it!

There’s always something new (online) with me each week, but taking the time to get on here and update is my challenge. This week I was busy pulling together a new paper.li page, updating a squidoo page I’d totally forgotten I had, and creating a very personal blog article that included photos and results of my health journey over the last 17 months. Let me show you:This post, at FromKarlyn.com, was the result of a personal lifestyle change and transformation I experienced over the last – almost year and a half. The changes I made were “drastic” i think some may say, but to me – they were necessary, important and could even have saved my life. I go into great detail of what changes I made and how they affected me, over the last few years. I include a before and after photo too. Writing this post was therapeutic too, as it made me go back and examine some things I hadn’t recalled in some time. Showing and sharing my “before” photo was hard though. The photo still makes me sad, but at the same time, I’m thankful I finally work up from the unhealthy funk I was in for way too long! I’m a total newb to Paper.li. When I checked out the site for the first time this week; I was intrigued with it’s purpose. The template allows you to create your own online newspaper. Fill it with content from your own sources, a friends, favorite places online, etc. The site pulls content from the URL’s you feed it, including an image. You have control over how you want it displayed and the frequency of your newspaper’s updates. Visitors can subscribe to stay updated with the new content displayed each day, weekly, or whatever. One of the most impressive things I noted right away was now seriously easy the system is to use. There are no complicated controls the newbie will get lost in. Use the handy + Paper.li shortcut for your browser and pin content effortlessly in seconds while you browse the www. Silly me, but I’d attempted this Squidoo a few years ago and then got side-tracked. So; I took the opportunity this week to spend some quality time with it. My main Squidoo is about Karlyns across the web. The name itself is not too common as you may have guessed, so I shared some info about the different Karlyns I’ve met online since 2004, “Karlyn” products that are featured online, and then of course own sites that feature the name. There’s a poll there and some other fun stuff too. Squidoo’s have been around for a while now. If you are not familiar with the site, it’s a handy tool for people who want to share all kinds of ideas. You can create pages, called “Lenses”, about practically any topic under the sun. There are a lot of layout configurations, addons and widgets you can include along with your basic topic title and description, but it’s not overwhelming. It’s totally free and allows the user a good, quality way to get there content online for all to view.
I do work full time in retail by the way, but when I get home from work, I get busy with my “fun work”, which is my websites, my blogging, my freelance advertising and design work, etc.. I love it. So each week, I continue to update my other websites.. .com’s I’ve had since 2000. The following sites all have some worthwhile updates of their own that I hope you’ll take a moment to check out as well. They may not be featured like my top-three above, but they are nonetheless important to me. They are all my babies.. lol.
