Hello Everybody, I am Varun. I am doing a diploma in Advanced Networking and system security from CDAC. I have done BCA. Now, I am bit worried in deciding that in which direction I should move. Should I go for Cisco certification or MCA. Getting more and more certification is enough or is it necessary to have masters degree... Please give your valuable suggestions.. Thanks

Hi Varun,

it actually depends a lot on you. to give some example, some of my friends completed their degree and they continue to do other certification and became expert in it….

there is another friend, he did his diploma in IT and after that he started to go for Cisco certification and he is now holding CCIE cert…so it truly depends on what you want in your life…

    Besides degrees and certifications, you will need work experience. Education might not be enough to get (or hold) a good job.

    I am working towards CCIE now after years in the business. All its going to do though is back up the experience I have. To me, experience speaks volumes!!

    Hi Varun, I also have the same problem, in my country the first step to getting a good job in a Degree, but I have a Advance diploma in IT, I am now following the Cisco Path, but I am also worried if I should go do a degree. But for me I think I will just follow the Cisco path and become an expert.

    IMO, those companies (or the hiring people) who focus on degrees and certs have little knowledge of the real work to be done. When I interview prospective employees or contractors, I am looking for skills. I ask detailed questions about specific topics. If the interviewee can talk intelligently about the topic, then he is hired. So I suggest you practice being able to discuss your knowledge and not just point to your degree.
