Hi. i am an Exchange Admin, looking to move my career to the next level.  My question, - Should i  go for Vmware and then Exchange 2013 and Lync 2013 or jump straight to Exchange 2013 with Lync 2013

I have already downloaded Lync 2010 and played about with it and i do like it  but all jobs that ask for Lync also want U to have VOIP. knowledge. Dont Fancy learning Cisco as well.

I am also learning and handling Lync 2010, basic knowledge of VOIP is enough. For LYNC admin you need to understand the concepts, secondary Lync setup is a one time job, if configured properly there is hardly anything you need to do on server side everyday.

Maximum you need to fetch reports etc.
