What else can I do to make myself more marketable for entry level IT positions?

As of now I feel like I want to go the Microsoft System Administrator and/or Support Technician route. I have over 140 credits in a Computer Security and Information Assurance BS, but haven't completed a few degree requirements because of financial difficulty. I'll work on that when I secure a decent job. In addition to that, I'm hired as a contract worker for an IT staffing agency and have about 6 months of help desk experience in an enterprise environment. I've completed a free course on Active Directory in Windows Server 2008 through my staffing agency's free training program. I'm currently studying for the CompTIA A+, but don't feel comfortable testing just yet. It's a little difficult to get contracts without an A+, so that's my first priority, but are there any other things I could do to make myself stand out more on my resume, that don't require too much financial cost? What training courses should I aim for through my agency? (They use SkillPort)

Right now your most important thing is to #1 get experience which it sounds like you are getting and #2 get that BS degree. If you are at 140 credits you need to wrap that up ASAP... More
