Unfortunately, neither a CCNP or an MCSE is an outright ticket to a good job these days, but neither credential will hurt you, either. If you want to work more on the networking infrastructure side of the business, I recommend pursuing Cisco; if you want to work more with systems and the departmental/LAN side of the business, I recommend the MCSE.
