Goals:
 Python, Ruby, and Perl Portfolios
 CEH Certification
What can I do with that
certification?
 A+: Low to medium job availability and employment

attractiveness ($10.00 per hour starting pay)
Network + (with A+): Medium to high job availability and
attractiveness. Level 1A Technician and Level 1 Manager
($15.00)
Security + (with previous certifications): High to very high
job availability and attractiveness ($20 per hour)
Linux+ (with previous certifications): High to very high job
availability and attractiveness. ($25-30 per hour)
CIEH (with previous certifications): Very high demand
($30-40 per hour; $120,00 per year after two years. This
equates to $3.6 million over a 30 yr. career.)
Consider This:
 Currently, it is estimated that there are 300,00 positions
available for Certified Ethical Computer Hackers.
 If a person earns $120,oo in their 3rd year of employment,
they can expect to make $7.6 million ($7,628,725.43) over
30 years, if they receive a 5% raise each year.
 If they invest 10% a year in a mutual fund yielding 12%
return (the 40 year average), they will have 4.3 million in a
retirement account; bringing their 30 year total earnings to
nearly $12 million dollars ($12,000,000.”)
 Not to mention, companies will be paying these salaries to
American workers and not outsourcing.
