Even my recent experience says no here. I had a CCIE (written..!) in for 
an interview and, well, I am not sure how he managed to get CCIE written 
but he sure as hell didn't know much.

There are some useful qualifications for ISP potential employees that 
the LINX provide in conjunction with some training companies, these are 
good for NOC or junior engineers but at the end of the routing table 
there's no substitute for getting people who have had a few years to 
screw up other people's networks and learn what not to do..
