I think I may have come to wrong board but I am looking for advice. I want to get into the sysadmin field I have experience with Hypervisors and setting up VMs and setting them up for automation. I am really confident in my skills in a enterprise and other mixed enviroment setting but I don't have any formal job experience and an my resume looks pretty dismal.

It seems like most employers want a degree in a crazy field to get a entry level position, I'll be going for an LPIC, Network+/CCNA/RS and CCNA DC cert in a few days. Any tips for a guy shooting for a sysadmin job or a data center tech?

You need to know people. Part of the advantage of going to school is that if nothing else your professors can recommend you. You'll want to try to make friends.

Pretty much, and you don't need a degree for sysadmin tasks, and certs are only worth something if you ace them and get apply for a job over the institute where you're taking the test.
The public job offerings are from people who don't have anybody doing their IT inhouse who want to get away from a third party service contract. Avoid them.

Try to meet somebody who has the position you want and try to get them to ask around for you if they're hiring.

Will do I was thinking of trying to hunt for bars where people with these kinds of positions might hang out and try to make some friends. Maybe I should join a tech based slack chat or something for my area.
