would I qualify for? This is a tough time to use any single CompTIA certification (all of which are primarily designed to warrant certain basic, entry-level competence, skills, and knowledge in their holders) as a ticket to a job. In a job market where MCSEs, CCNPs, and other intermediate level credential holders are begging for work, it's a very difficult climate for those who hold only entry-level credentials to find jobs as well. A lot will depend on what other knowledge, skills, and experience you bring to a potential job, and where you're currently located (or planning to work).
The quick answers to your questions therefore are: "Not very easy" and "An entry level network technician or help desk professional, if you're very, very lucky!"
