    Hi guys, i came across this while browsing the jobs sites, looks like a great opportunity for a CCNA with no real world experience.

    However it does state:

    &

    So it's not just a case of no experience and a CCNA...

    But good luck to those that apply :)

    The question I always wonder is this: if you were running a network, would you hire someone with no experience to come in to manage your routers and switches? Sure, a CCNA might know the theory and might even be able to run a few commands, but that's a lot different than dealing with issues as they pop up on a production network.

    I'd say there'll be a few senior network engineer's working there already given the size of the company, and if they are wise the junior tech's CLI access will have a limited privilege level until he has proven his skills somewhat.

    Based on the caliber of people on my CCNA course back in the stone age, i wouldn't let a CCNA do **** all to my network outside the 'show' commands, its scary to consider they passed the same exam i did!

    That said, i have no beef hiring a CCNA with no experience provided they can pass my own criteria (no brain dumps for my interviews!)

    if they know there stuff, it means they put in the time and effort to learn it and deserve a chance, anyone who can learn enough to pass a CCNA for real (no cheating) without much real world exposure is pretty savvy
