How do I become a network administrator?
I've been a computer operator for 13 years now. About four years ago I decided to obtain my BS in Information Technology with a concentration in Network Admin. in hopes of moving up from computer operations into a Network Admin type position. However, I'm finding it difficult to find a job as a network admin without the experience behind me. Should I go back to school and get my MS in Management Information Systems, or get a certification? Although, I would hate to get a certification in Cisco technology and a job requires a Microsoft Certification. It would limit me. So, I leave it up to you guys. Which is better, MS MIS, or go for certifications?

Go for MCSE certification then CCNA then further. Network or System Administration required many years of experience, why would you like to start from the begining?
