I just have these thoughts on my mind these days and I think it might be an interesting idea to start a survey in this forum.
1) If you are the hiring manager and need to decide on which of the two finalist candidates to recruit for an appointment as senior network engineer in the network operation/project team, which one would you prefer?
Both candidates A and B have equivalent academic background and working experience in the networking field, however :
-> A is holding CCNP, CCDP, CCIP, CCSP and CCVP certifications, and
-> B is holding CCNP and CCIE Routing and Switching titles
2) If you are the hiring manager looking for someone to fill in the Pre-sales support/consulting engineer position, would you prefer B than A, and why? (Remarks: Both A and B have no prior experience in Pre-sales support role)
3) Is CCIE a compulsory requirement for Pre-sales consulting position(assuming no previous experience in this role), what are the chances of A securing this job offer?
Any opinion would be helpful and valuable to me for the above discussion. Thanks all in advance :)
