This starter guide is for VMware newbies and beginners who want answers to common career questions.

Here’s the list of questions I answer in detail:

  10. What should I put on my resume?
  11. Are VMware job interviews hard?
  12. What if I don’t have a lot of vSphere or Openstack experience and I still get the job because they want a virtualization newbie to do newbie tasks?
