If you want to concentrate on networking, then cisco certs are the best. Some non-vendor-specific ones include CompTIA's network+.

NetWare is an OS and do have their CNE program. Microsoft's is the dominant market holder, so an MCSE is popular.

According to many reports, IT staff are still in demand despite the IT bubble bursting late last year. There's still room, so come aboard.

As far as deciding what you want to pursue, the field is getting more diverse and specialized. Determine what you are interested in (OS Administrator? Networks? Web Design? Programming?), research info relating to that, and then begin studying!

In a recent review of job postings, out of about 150 postings, there was only one that required Netware certification. As much as it pains me to say, Netware is circling the drain and I don't have much hope for the product line although Novell itself may survive by re-inventing itself.

The Cisco and MCSE certifications seem to have the most widespread acceptance at the moment.

Networking is a very viable career choice and can provide decent earnings but I don't know that I would look forstability because I just don't see it in the cards. Since the beginning of the year, there have been 100,000 dotcom layoffs and even such industry stalwarts as Cisco are seeing some tough times that have resulted in layoffs.

Even in the best scenario, technology needs will evolve very rapidly and those who thrive and prosper will be the nimble ones who never stop learning. Job security will increasingly be defined as the ability to get a new job when the one you have now ends.

So, shed the idea about stability and do come join the rest of us - layoffs notwithstanding, we still have a shortage.
