    The original post in this thread is over a month old, does that qualify as thread necro?
    Anyhow, I just wanted to throw in my $.02 - most CCNP jobs I come across don't care about your degree. That will help (obviously,) but configuring Cisco devices and acting as a technical engineering resource are not things you develop in a college classroom, in most cases. If you want to work for a top company, it will be (obviously) more competitive but for most other places you are fine with a 2-year degree to get started. As others pointed out, it is mostly about the experience that you have.

    The certs and degree are a great start but what will get you the job is your drive and experience. A great personality would be the cherry on top!!

    First of all congrats on getting your degree (almost) that's a big time accomplishment. Don't down play that degree, an associates in something relevant is a big time accomplishment. Hopefully it's at least semi STEM.

    You get that with the CCNP and you are in REALLY good shape.
