MCSE IS NOT  THE WASTAGE OF TIME ,IT  HAS SO MUCH VALUE
U CAN INCREASE UR KNOWLADGE ABOUT THE N/WING,IT HAS ALSO GREAT VALUE IN FORGEIN. IF U  WANT TO DO MCSE ,PLS DO IT CAREFULLY AND PRACTICALLY,BECAUSE MOST OF THE ORAGNISATIONS BELEIVE IN THE PRACTICAL WORK U  CAN PERFORM RATHER THEN UR CERTIFICATES

I think it just depends on how you're managing the network at your school . If you've been using every network service, you dont need to be certified . It is better to check the content of the MCSE track . There can be lot's of things you'll learn and maybe not .

I think in the job market as it is today each position is receiving much more competition then in previous years. As an IT Manager in charge of hiring I will say that for each position that I have open I get about 50-70 resumes in 3 days time. How many of those do you think have an MCSE credential? The answer is about 50% of them do. So then how many of those resumes that don't have a MCSE credential do you think I waste my time looking at? If you are applying for a position that has the need for MCSE skills then by all means you should have some MCSE credentials. You will be competing with MCSE's for that position and unless you have some outstanding education along with experience that puts you above the rest you may get overlooked for those higher paying positions. Just a suggestion, the best investment that you can make is in yourself!

Hope this helps,
