    Which certification would be more valuable for finding an entry level networking job?

    Well network+ is the entry level exam. If you are looking for a place to start then a good place to start is the A+ and then the network+. I'll let one of the others explain why CCNA and entry level don't go together and could do more harm than good in landing an entry level job.

    Network+ is the first exam you should take if u don't have any idea of networking,and after that u further into CCNA. so u can have a good foundation. If the foundation is not solid, am sorry the building cant to strong. so build a good foundation first.

    Dont expect getting a real networking job with a Network+ but it is a good first stepping stone into networking.I myself first did Network+ and it helped me understand the fundamentals before starting my CCNA.

    The CCNA is not an entry level cert, that in itself should tell you that the N+ is the right one to go for.

    Another bit of advice, rather than just concentrating on the N+ can I suggest you actually spend time in a 1st line support role, getting experience of supporting users and the OS because no one with just an N+ is going to be allowed any where near any networking hardware, you're more likely to move up into that role from a 2nd line role.
