What would be a great job to get "my foot in the door" for Network Administration?
I am currently about to receive an associate's degree and was going to go onto getting a Bachelor's degree.

If you're just starting out in IT, then take anything decent (ie, no crappy companies) and learn all you can about the net admin portion of that job. While doing this, continue to work on your own with whatever resources available that fit your learning style - books, online courses, VirtualBox test networks, etc.
Another possibility if it appeals to you, is to look for apprenticeship training in low voltage systems. You'll end up doing a lot of hands on stuff, but you'll get paid to learn, and would have a foundation to build on.
