    I have been working in IT now for about 4yrs looking after window and exchange servers plus some sql with citrix.

    I decided to do my ccna ccna v ccna s and checkpoint ccsa. I am now working towards my ccnp.

    Im trying to find a job in networking but its like banging your hd against a brick wall. Is it me or is cisco simply not in demand any more.

    Is anyone else finding it hard to break into networking

    Cisco Voice and Cisco IP are still very highly in demand specially if you have experiance with Financial Institutions and Telco's. Juniper / Extreme are highly in demand as well, networking is a particular area which will and always is in demand mate.

    Cisco with experience, yes. Cisco without experience, no.

    Didn't we already have a post-versation about this a few days ago?? :blink If you don't listen to the advice we give, you're gonna keep banging your head on the wall to no effect.

    I have bolded the keys as to why you are having trouble finding work, the CCNA is a good cert to have with 6-12 months commercial experience, studying the CCNA without taking the exam if you have no experience is beneficial as you will learn a lot of good stuff and you wont make employers think you either cheated or are going to disapear after 6 months for something better.

    Search for the term overcertified and this will explain the many reasons why this is bad.
