So what are the best qualifications to go for when trying to proove your knowledge to prospective employers?

I know that experience is where it's at but, one has to start somewhere otherwise it's the chicken and egg scenario.

Best chances, in this order:

1) Networking / Personal references
2) Experience and/or College
3) Certifications
4) Personal Development and Volunteering (also helps with #1)

You can completely blow a technical interview, but if you come off as someone that's easy to work with, a good personality, and an aptitude/potential for the job at hand, you'll still score very high.

Yeah I sorta knew that. What I was actually asking was what would be the best specific qualifications to go for in Linux. I already have an MCSE and CCNA, so I want to add to my list and experience.

Does anyone know if the LPI certs are regarded highly in the Linux industry?
