Some friends have not been engaged in the position of network engineer. And they want to know whether learning Cisco Certified Security Professional would find an ideal job or not. As an editor working on the network project, I will give you a summary according to my experience in this industry, as well as the actual situation from a lot of people around me who have learned the CCNP.
Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) is valuable
After all, Cisco Certified a very famous network manufacturer in the world. However, its market shares are slowly being replaced by Microsoft, Amazon, or ISACA. But if it meets European and American customers and some customers who personally trust Cisco Certified equipment, it still will have a certain market space.
In addition, CiscoCertified’s professional certification system has been launched for many years. It is indeed true that people who generally learn the knowledge about the network engineers from the CiscoCertifiedare almost given priority to all over the world.
Then Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) actually is equal to a practical network engineer who has 1 ~ 3 years working experience. You will also master basic skills, such as the router switch, firewall, and networking protocol. What’s more, the professional skills about the technical implementation of the small and medium-sized computer network project basically can be learned in the learning process as the intermediate network engineer.
The level of your skills is very important
Because the network engineer of CiscoCertified is an occupational certification of a manufacturer, it is very likely that there will be such a situation when some people get the certificate, but the actual skills learned or called real skills are not very good. They can get the certificate by downloading the question bank on the Internet, through a short period of weeks or even a month to take a swift preparation of the certification examination. Almost all IT professional certification has existed this kind of phenomenon to pass the Cisco exams.
Thus it may make some candidates get the certificates without mastering practical skills, and sometimes it is not a good thing. Because when you find a job hopefully, nevertheless the enterprise think that you do not have the practical ability completely after the interview. Then he will not give you many opportunities or projects, and even someone doesn’t have an interview.
So the solution must be learning. In the process of learning, you need to gain the knowledge and professional skills carefully and completely, Because a technical engineer, especially a network engineer, many professional technical contents are just the most basic skills in your work. If these basic skills are just attained quickly bypassing the exam in a swift preparation of the certificate questions, you won’t really master these skills. So in the interview, you will be easily exposed to the interviewer that you do not master the technology and skills well. Or if you pass the interview with good luck, you will make some great mistakes in your work.
The Cisco Certified Network Professional of the CiscoCertified needs to know what kind of person the enterprise needs during the interview.
For those people who have not stepped into the workplace, or have not been engaged in the field of network engineer, we must be clear that the employers won’t give us the position and payment according to the number of our certificates.
Because this idea is usually come up with in your own view to think about what I need, without considering what the employer needs. For the employer, at the time of hiring, it is a better condition for you to own a certificate that may prove that you have learned and participated in the exam. But through the interview, employers would prefer to know your personal spirit, communication skills, and teamwork in the workplace. And other requirements, for example, whether you can work together in your group and be qualified for your position or not are also important. Of course, a brief interview may not be able to know whether you really are a genius or not. But for the basic spirits, professional qualities, and skills of the position, the interviewer will probably be able to make a judgment about you.
So in the actual situation, for the position of the network engineers, after we have learned the Cisco Certified CCNP, it will be easy for us to find a job. But you have to attain professional skills and professional quality. Then in the process of the interview, you can make the interview content with yourself. At the same time, they will think that you are the technical talent who is needed. So your possibility of passing the interview is relatively big.
Is it easy to find a job as a Cisco Certified Network Professional? Then you have to master the basic situation of the network engineer interview.
After you finish your studies or get the CCNP certification from the Cisco Certified and you start to look for a job. Let me ask you a question, as an editor working on the network project. Are you really ready to look for a job?
For example, when you log in to indeed.com, or other similar recruitment platforms, what kind of job title you will search for? Do you really know that? In addition to the occupational name like network engineer, you can also search for system integration engineer or customer service technical engineer. There are many job names. Do you know this basic knowledge of the job name search?
And then if you go to an interview, do you know what kind of questions the interviewers usually ask? He won’t ask you what the cable is and make you produce a piece of string, because it is too easy. Most interviewers will ask what projects you have done, what equipment you have adjusted, the past difficult situation, and the relevant solution you have faced. They prefer testing your reaction to the emergency and technology ability. So are you ready for this?
And then when you go to take the interview of the network engineer, no matter you are interviewing one company or 50 companies, if it involves technical interview or written examination, will you be clear that the interviewer may ask you what kind of technical questions. In other words, when you take the basic technical interview, if you do not organize your technical question bank, you will fail directly. Then will you still name yourself as a network engineer? If you fail in your technical skills, the interview will fail. So I would like to ask you whether the technical question bank is ready for you?
Maybe there is something more. So in the process of finding a job, you also need some basic knowledge and skills. It does not mean that after you become a Cisco Certified Network Engineer, then a job will come to you. As an excellent engineer, in addition to proficient technical skills, you should be very skilled in how to find a job and how to improve yourself in the work. In fact, all things are similar, which also reflects your ability.
