I'm going to start applying for a tech position after the holidays and looking on monster and career builder, a lot of the positions I see don't require experience (which I lack) but they do want you to have a license. I'm in IL and when looking at the application, it doesn't say anything about being currently working as a tech. It sounds like as long as you have $40 and a HS diploma that's all you need. Does anyone know if this is true? I'm thinking if I get the license, it will show some initiative and hopefully help land me some experience. Thanks!
