I work as a R&D network engineer and hold a master's degree in telecommunications engineering. My plan is to take CCNA and then CCIP as I have been working on IP-QoS and MPLS for the past three years. Does it make sense and would it be useful to get a good job?
Indeed what you propose sounds both reasonable and relevant, but you might also want to take a look at the brand-new CCVP credential, if your interest in quality of service relates in any way to voice over IP or related protocols and services. The CCIP is focused on service providers, so your choice of professional level Cisco cert should also reflect your target industry/employer niche as well. But in general, your plan makes sense, fits your background and interests, and is very likely to help your employability (or at least your job options).
