I'd like to pose a question to all you IT pro's out there. I've been in school for a while now in computer information systems. At the moment, I have a double course concentration of networking and security (and thinking of adding programming). My question is this: Which carries more weight when it comes to landing a job in IT, a college degree or professional certifications such as COMP TIA A+, Networks + and Security +. I can only attend school part time and haven't been in a hurry to graduate since I imagine that I'll be taking classes for professional development throughout my career anyway. I'm really looking for the most direct route to getting started in the field. ALL opinions are welcome.....thanks.
