Im currently going through my Cisco track have done the CCNA and passed with a score of 950. Im half way through my CCNP track and doing well, only i dont have any hands on cisco experience... Just book reading and alot of simulation time on Boson software.
They say real world experience is the only way to obtain the highly acclaimed CCIE plaque... is this the case? -- and as i dont have real world experience how am i to obtain this without working in the field?
And finally, once i obtain my CCIE what are the chances of me landing a Networking job without any real world experience?
