I currently work for a fortune 500 company as a Entry level helpdesk for computer problems. I have a A.S. degree in CIT and will have my B.S. degree at the end of this sprint semester.
Trying to get a idea of what certifications I should be working towards?
I have A+ and a certification from my school in cisco routing.
I would like to go into cisco routing as it was my focus, but i'm thinking I might find more job oppurtunities if i go into Windows Server.
So CCNT > CCNA
Windows 7 > Windows Sever 2008
any other suggestions?
My ideal positions are as follows (favorite to least favorite)
1. Cisco Routing Admin
2. Unix Admin
3. Windows Server 2008 Admin
I think Windows will get me a job faster which is important to pay off school loans lol
Thanks for any input.

I am not one about all the certs, but I think a Windows based cert will do. Microsoft would be proud.

Honestly i hate microsoft lol.
3 of the 4 pc's in my home run linux. I focused on cisco routers when i graduated with my A.S. degree. Working on my B.S. i took sql&oracleDatabase/Server2008/Fedora unix classes so i got a wide mix.
