Depends on the manager

Certain managers like to see you can fulfill a 2 or 4 year program, some would like to see actual knowledge.

I would suggest finding help desk related work if you are starting out. Any basic knowledge of networking (OSI layer models, TCP/IP), and hardware (A+) will help further employment opportunities.
