This is me! (but I manipulated my boss into paying me more than that, hehe and have NO certifications).

*note to self: never waste time getting A+*

Ah Right, so they dont REALLY need that at all?....

Well you may come across a very few positions that require it, usually entry-level hardware repair / "desktop support" jobs.

Society here is just killing me at the moment It's a big wide world out there and you would be foolish not to explore it.
I'm glad to hear you and bono_man2002 want to explore outside Australia. I've not lived outside Oz but I have travelled a few times, (mostly tho' through Europe, definitely would like to see more of our world). You realise how much you take things for granted, living where you grew up in, you realise how different so many places are, and then again, how similar they are too.

I think sometimes we get forgotten down here, at the bottom of the earth and at the same time, people forget about us too. (YES LIKE YOU U2!!)

I guarantee, you'll never look at many things the same way again.

Good luck!

I think you'd enjoy Montréal quite a bit. The city itself is very diverse:

- French!
- various ethnic groups, languages
- old city (European; narrow cobblestone streets) and modern city (skyscrapers, nightlife)
- cold winters, hot summers (for me anyway)
- many world-class festivals during the year (summer in Montréal is a big party lol)
- great cycling city too

A good thing about moving to Montréal is you'll be able to work in English if you wish (Montréal has an important english minority) but you will definitely learn French.. (Montréal is the second largest French-speaking city in the world, next to Paris...)

People are friendly, too (except when they're driving )

I've never been to Chicago so I can't help you there...!

Good luck!

Thanks for the Info..I Can't split the two cities apart, based on what I've been Told.

When I went to The US for U2 back in March, I really enjoyed San Diego and Anahiem, but Was put off by LA....maybe it was just the area....I dunno, I just didnt like it.....

Anybody know any good Real-Estate sites for Montreal?
Chicago is easy to look up on Yahoo.
