If someone is CCNA Certified, so which certs he/she should do after CCNA beside CCNP ?

    Well, I'm personally going for MCSE on Windows Server 2003. Here's why:

    Even if I know Cisco networking (at a CCNA level) very well, there is always gonna be that guy who knows it just as well and has more experience. Since I'm in a position where I don't work with Cisco, this is not a good situation.

    So, If I get MCSE certified, maybe A+, and a little UNIX. I become a good all around "computer tech". It seems that employers are wanting more diversified skills. If they want a pure Cisco guy, they aren't gonna pick me!

    Thanks for your suggestion. I think MCSA2003 is not bad either...

    If you are CCNA, MCSA, A+.. you rule..

    If you are CCNP you need 2 exams to become CCDP: the CCDA and the CID exam.

    I think MCSE in 2003 will be a good move in addition to CCNA and some of the "+ certs". Most companies want people who can do everything because they can't afford to keep people on staff who are an expert at one thing and only one thing. I was looking into 2003 a little but seems so new can't find good books on it, haven't even had a chance to try it out yet. My major problem is the number of tests that need to passed, that's a lot of money and trips to the test center just for Microsoft.

    Good luck on working your way towards Jack of all trades+ certification.

    I think it's a good move.
