What networking cert is in great demand?

I want to know what kind of networking is in great demand in the IT industry. For example: is CCNA or MCSE in demand or should one go for Linux while keeping in mind a competitive salary.
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. Check out searchnetworking.com's salary survey to see what jobs are in the top-ten pay category.
