Hi Javi,

I've found myself wondering a similar question: With a ComSci degree and several certifications under my belt in a few months, will any one hire me? And will I earn anything more than peanuts?

Its not only certification or comp science degree that can get one a gd job and gd salary or can make him/her a gd professional. There are many more things thats companies see like aptitute , attitute,motivation bla bla. Can;t discuss all here coz its a very time consuming topic.

Billy,

About postgraduate degrees...

How much do you think it matters what kind? There are so many routes: from evening or day MBA to serious M.S./PhD in Computer Science, with several part and full time M.S. Information Science types of degrees in between.

If all options are possible and one doesn't want to have a career in academia, but does want a graduate degree, what route, in your opionion, is the best?

What alot of nonsense. Do you care to qualify such a blanket statement?
