I would suggest looking for a job somewhere as a "Network Technician" or "Jr. Network Administrator" To be an engineer or administrator you really need to have practical experience. Your best bet is to look for a job wokring under someone with some solid experience that can teach you the stuff that can't be learned from a book. Good Luck with your career.

Unofrtunately from what I have experienced with others and through personal experience, degrees and certificates mean jack. Unless you have 2-3 years of work experience it is very difficult to find a job. I have a friend that is MCSE and has a Masters degree in computers. He is currently working on the help desk at first level support because he has no real world experience.

My advice is this, "pay your dues and go through the motions." Find a consulting company that you can job hop every 6 months this way you can broaden your experience with different platforms and architecures quickly. You will probably have to start at a help desk or 1st level support position, answering phones and dealing with the most computer illiterate usersin the universe. After about 2-3 years, you can then start having your consulting company try to place you in an actual network design and implementation position.

A good thing to look for in a consulting company is one that will not sell you asa genius. I have seen too many companies make their consultants out as super network engineers and they show up and can't even find the power switch on the front of the pc.
