    Plus it depends on whether or not the company actually uses Cisco equipment :lol:

    Do you have any "real world" experience with Cisco Kit? If not, you will may well struggle to find employment, CCNP is not an entry level cert and therefore you shouldn't really go for it until your in a Cisco kit environment.

    try and get experience now with your ccna while your studying your ccnp. it'll give you much more of a chance finding a job

    Without real-world experience, the CCNP will not do you much good in looking for a job. Wish I could tell you otherwise... but that's the truth.
