Almost every job posting I see requires at least a BS, and some say that they prefer a Master degree. I currently have an A.A.S. in Computer Network Technology, and I am working on completing my BS in IT. With the way the job market is going I will probably pursue a MS in INFOSEC after I finish my Bachelor degree, and why not since my employer will finance it?

I guess it depends on where you live and what your specialty is.
Good luck getting on an IA federal contract here in the DC area if you don't have at least your bachelor's.

What good is a 4 year degree when you cannot set up a network for a company?

I agree. I don't understand why people are asking for 4 year degree's when a student can't do this. I had a teacher ask the who class what is needed for a network and over half of the class responded with the right answers. I was really surprised. Anyways I think it has something to do with not having enough reinforcement of the material and having to take 'filler' classes along with classes not useful to the subject such as calculus or accounting. If I wanted to take those classes then I would be an Accounting major or a Math major.
