I think it's gotten me more opportunity for a job (IE: Interviews). But without work experience it has not landed me a networking role like I had hoped.

That is very true. It does help with interviews, but not having experience have lowered their consideration for an actual hire. I was lucky enough to network with some college students & professors to have my current employer take a risk on me so I can gain that experience. If you do not have that type of networking, you may be able to have a IT recruiter aid you with gaining entry level networking positions.

I would say it depends on the market. Some places you might be able to literally walk into an entry level position with just a CCNA or even CCENT. They're going to grill you during the interview process for a serious network position where you're going to be making changes to the infrastructure. Thus your certification becomes irrelevant at that point.
