With Novell in such decline in the marketplace, a CNE is no longer much of a ticket to anything including employment. That said, the CCNA is a bit too entry level to get into a job these days, so you plan to go CCNA-CCNP is probably a good one. To perform a sanity check on your employment chances, visit some online job placement boards (monster.com, dice.com, etc.) and your local classifieds. If you don't see any specific mention of CCNA and/or CCNP in jobs that interest you, perhaps you should think again. Good luck in your search for meaningful employment.
