Jumping into a IT career

So i want to do Linux admining, been doing web developing for years, but want to make a change

Which cert should i get first? I know MCSE are dime and dozen, but I still notice lots of job wanting that cert.

Should I go get an MCSE cert, so I have better chance of getting a junior admin job or go straight for an linux cert?

Since I have no experience, I was able to secure an entry level helpdesk contract for a couple month while I study for one of my certs, after all, experience is what really matters.

Which cert should i get first?
