I will be pursuing an A.A.S Networking Technology degree:
http://www.waynecc.edu/networking/degree/

While getting the CCNA certification to begin with.

I'm hoping to become a Network Administrator in the Raleigh, NC area.

I don't want to be unemployed after I get my degree and certifications, am I taking the right course of action to prevent that?

I do have a genuine passion for Technology and I've spent most of my free time reading Cisco books or building functional topologies in Cisco PacketTracer.

What jobs could I get with the degree and the certifications?

Degrees and certifications are no guarantee of a job, they will help you, but they are not a guarantee.  A degree with certification is better than just a degree or just certification, but experience is the next item you will need.  You will find as you are gaining that experience that your degree and certifications are a foundation for what you need to do the job, but not everything you need to know.

 

What is your work experience?

 

You may need to accept lesser positions until you can gain the experience in doing what you want to do.  Contract jobs are a great way to gain experience and give you a better idea of what you want to do.
