Hello. Realize that Hadoop is a new technology. It is a moving target. Documentation is scrambling
to keep up with the latest movements and trends in Hadoop. 
It is not easy getting ones foot into the Hadoop industry. If you are US citizen & are
are willing to move to Baltimore seek a position as Hadoop admin/developer with Northrop or
Lockheed. They have contracts with SSA to incoporate Hadoop into their system. I hear, but
I'm not sure, but if make have some inclination towards Hadoop familiarity they will bring
you in cold.

 The problem here is that I don't think you're going to get a good quick hit with anything
that you can add to a CV. 
You likely need to think about a 6-9 month project that actually has some kind of measurable
impact to impress anyone. 
My opinion...

One thing you might have to realize is that you will likely need to get some kind of programming
knowledge.  You don't have to be an expert, but I don't know that many orgs have dedicated
Hadoop administrators that don't have to touch some code at some point, even if to integrate
components together.
An "administrator" could still be expected to write some kind of MapReduce job, whether it
be using the streaming API or some other higher level language like Pig.

I would like to go towards administration side not in development side as I don't know java
