Hello, b_omi Welcome to Geeks to Go,

I am taking the MCSE course right now and next semester I will be taking CCNA. My advice is to take all the certification courses you can. Those 2 are definitely a couple of good certs. Taking those alone can help you land a Network Administrator's job, among others. From looking on Monster.com I have seen alot of employers asking for bachelors degrees in all sorts of areas of the IT field though. The length of the 2 coursed could definitely vary depending on where you take them. I am spending about 1 year to take the 2 courses, but that does not gurarntee me to get certified. That just trains me and I need to study and pass all the tests on my own. Some places you can take longer to do it, and you can also take courses and tests online. Good luck.

10 years ago certifications would have been enough to land almost any IT job. Employers are still intereted in certifications, but experience has also become much more important.

Get as many certs as you can, but also gain experience anywhere you can. That's one reason you'll see so many people volunteering their services for web hosting companies and ISP's. It's worth it just for the experience.
