Thanks for the input Moose! It makes sense to try and find any type of odd jobs I can find to get any experience.
If you don't mind me asking, how long ago was it that you got your associates?

I'm in the Network Admin track at CSCC too and i have 2 quarters left, we may have even had a class together. I am deciding on whether i want to transfer to OSU or to Franklin University. If i go to Franklin, i will have my B.S. Degree in about a year after i grad from CSCC but if I go to O State, im looking at about 3 years. I know for a fact that a degree at O State will hold more weight than Franklin but then again sometimes I believe that a degree just gets you in the door for an interview and what you know gets you the rest of the way.

My point is, don't be afraid to do some self studying BEFORE you take the classes. When I started N+ I barely knew what I router was. When I started the CCNA, I barely knew what a routing protocol was. I hadn't taken the classes yet so I invested in myself and it paid off.

Two tiers for jobs.
In the job market the majority of jobs require a post high school education (AAS & BS)..A small percentage of jobs might make a BS mandatory but for the most part these two post highschool degrees are equally marketable for a decent salary equipped with some certs and good experience.
Master or PhD are the only two post high schools degrees not canceled out by certs or experience. When an employer asks for one of these two, they demand it.
