I need Help!

I was in the army for 5 year, MOS 74B!

I worked in Korea for two yrs with the army on the KWAN.Miami for 3yrs Installing, configuring, troubleshooting, LAN/WAN 2500 series - 7500 series.

I'm done with the service, and was looking

for help, to keep this career going, cause im good at it and i like networking. Looking at the cisco career page what job title would i fall under. And is 5 yrs hand-on exp enough to get a good job in the networking field. I have taken a number of cisco courses that the army has put me in!

Re: I need Help!

Are you talking about working directly for Cisco, or for a Cisco reseller or network integrator?

Getting your CCNA would be a good start. With 5 years hands-on experience you probably just need to breeze through one of the latest CCNA books and challenge the test.

Depending on the depth of your hands-on experience, you may need to spend a little more time studying for the CCNP tests. Pick a test, buy the current http://www.CiscoPress.com certification guide. Then read through it a couple times, paying particular attention to the topics you DIDN'T actually use in your day-to-day work. Because it's the stuff you never needed to use that will bite you on the test.

You've probably also seen this link:

Put a couple of certs. on your resume (CCNA/CCNP, CCDA) with your experience and someone will make you an offer. At least, you should get considered before someone who's freshly graduated from a Cisco Training Academy program.

Hope this helps.
