I need guidance and information.

By mpennell ·
I've recently graduated college in May of 2005 with a 2 yr. degree as a Computer Network/Systems Administrator. I've almost got one year under my belt of job experience. I'm studying now for my CCNA exam. Could I get some recommendations for what road I should travel next? Should I continue with Cisco's certs. or maybe get my MCSA/MCSE along with my CCNA. I'm just wondering if it would be more valuable to be "a jack of all trades but master of none" as compared to just sticking with Cisco's certs. I'm staying very open-minded about my future so all suggestions are welcome. Thank you.

Having any cert is better than having none. And having a lot of certs is better than having one. But having a BS is better than any cert.

As far as being "a jack of all trades but master of none", why not be a "a jack of all trades but master of many"

I'd follow through on the CCNA path, and then move to (at least) the MCSA path.

This will give you some exposure to both the networking, and server side of the business, at which point you'll probably be able to pick which one you'd like to specialise in.
