Most companies/drones are looking for windows certs. I've converted a few servers to linux since I was hired. If you like Redhat/Fedora, then I'd say jump right into the RHCE. Otherwise, start with linux+ and then get LPI

You can knock out a cert in a few days if all you do is memorize a braindump, but the company will figure that out once your on the job. I generally don't like to fix some "Paper MCSE's" idiotic mistakes just because he has 5 certs and can memorize the answers a day before his exam. Take your time, build a couple cheap linux PCs, network them, try to break it, compile, write scripts, do your own firewall, DNS, DHCP, Samba, OpenLDAP, FTP of some type, Apache with all the whistles. Then go take the cert. You should be good by the time you've accomplished all this.
