Cisco still claims they could hire every CCIE they produce, and there are about three jobs available for every new CCIE, at a minimum. CCIE's also routinely earn great money (from the high 80s and up, depending on location and other minutae). If you've got the $13K and the time, and you'd like to do the kind of work that CCIEs do, you don't need to be concerned that you won't be able to find a job once you earn that credential. If worst comes to worst, you can always work for Cisco!
