Having lots of relevant work experience is the most important, in my opinion. Certifications and degrees help, but not as much as real-world experience.

Hi there!

Keep in mind not to be too "impressive" :) The employer expect you to know the topics that you put in your CV (as an example related to network field, if you have no idea what is MPLS then don't write this into the CV just because it is a fancy word).

If you have less experience (1-2 years) put first in the CV your education (university, certification, etc). If you are already senior in your domain, then put first the experience and the position that you held in your career.

Good luck!

Of course you can include your LAN experience, after all it is networking. Good luck with your exams!

Also you can include the fact that you worked for government. I believe that is a plus to your CV.



P.S. Thank for rating!
