If you're a final-year student, you should know how to use capital letters in a sentence. And not really sure how to "guide you about"...if you want to get a job as a Linux administrator, then step one is KNOW LINUX. Step two would be to apply for a job. Not much more to it than that.

Are you confused about Linux, or are you confused about how to find a job? If the former, then you need to study and practice with Linux setup and configuration. Get a bunch of older PCs, set up various Linux distributions on each, and set up various servers and services on them, especially network related services. When you start being able to do it without following recipes, you will be ready.
If you are confused about how to get a job, this probably isn't the best forum to ask. One piece of advice that I would offer, if you expect to look for work in an English speaking region, would be to compose your written English with more care.

The best way to learn GNU/Linux is to use it all the time. Believe me I've already tried this with many guys and now they cannot use an other OS except GNU/Linux.

you will find a huge collect of tutorials. The Debian project also has comprehensive tutorials.
So it may be a good idea to follow Debian. The Gentoo project has a good community forum -
I am sure trying to install Gentoo you will learn much. Don't bother yourself with desktop aimed distributions -
the only help you find there is a windowze-like help "click here, click there - a window will open, click right
button, press the ^] key" - completely useless.
