That's a tough question! Network security expertise is currently in demand. What's important to remember is that businesses are looking for a combination of solid experience and certification. I often tell students to pursue their interests. Choosing the right certification requires more than just looking at what's presently hot. If routers and the routing process fascinate you, pursue your CCNA. There are opportunities in all fields of networking. If you like what you do and become good at it, you will rise to the top.
