The RHCE would be the best to have when you focus on RedHat as you did in your Q. Prior to that you can get an RHCT.

However, from what I can tell there still isn't a lot of "requirement" for certification in Linux. Most employers are more interested in your experience than your certification. Certification might help if you were competing for a job with someone with seemingly equal experience or for entry level positions.

Well the formal RedHat ones... RHCT, then RHCE, then RHCA.
