I recently obtained my MCSE on win2k3 and have a job that I am at the moment content with. I am also(slowly) working on a computer technolgy/network administration degree from Ivy tech. Most people think the next Cert i should get is CCNA just wanted to get a few more opinions.
We're on the same boat, kinda. I already have a CCNA, a job that I am VERY pleased with (which required a CCNA but I never use), I'm pursuing a Bachelors in Computer Info Systems, and I am considering going for a MCSE as well as an A+ Certification.
Since I am very happy at my job my biggest priority is getting a degree as it guarantee's a boost in salary. The other certifications will only really help me in finding another job, which I am not looking for. So I will dedicate my efforts to school and then when I find the time I will go for the Certifications, which my employer will pay for.
That's my plan.
