    Hi,

    I want to ask a simple question. Nowadays People who are CCNA certified get a job easily. So Is CCNA certification necessary to get a job or to make a career in Networking?

    Any help, advice or past experience with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    You need a lot more than just a certification to get a job easily, there is no easy route to finding good employment.

    As others have said, not just about the cert. I have just moved into a Network Support position within my company and I am not yet CCNA certified, although I am self studying it and do plan on doing the exams in a few months time.

    A cert means little if you've not got the experience to back it up.
