It usually doesn't mean anything industry specific, but often just denotes some internal job level.

For example, at my organization, we (I think now) have 8 levels of network engineers, i.e. network engineer 1 to network engineer 8.  Our levels also have level names.  Such as:

level 1 = associate network engineer

level 2 = network engineer

level 3 = lead network engineer

level 4 = senior network engineer

level 5 = principle network engineer

level 6 = distinguished network engineer

level 7 = network engineer fellow

level 8 = network engineer senior fellow

Pay and job role responsibilities often go hand-in-hand with the organization level, especially pay ranges.

How anything like this relates to a job position really depends on the organization.

Is this a job title? No job description?

I am not sure also. I got a job vacancy and the recruiter sent me this "CCNP Cisco Network Engineer L3 level" I didn't understand what she meant. I would like to know if it's a correct Networking Statement!

Thanks

hi,

there's no harm asking the recruiter for the JD, so that you'll know what's expected from you.

Thank you Joseph. I guess that's explained my problem now.

Thanks a lot

It really depends on the country or organization.

I've seen "Level 3 Network Engineer" as the most senior network team.  This position does all the deep-level troubleshooting such as QoS and liase with Cisco TAC with configuration issues.

Have you seen the job ads for the Middle East?  Because I've seen "Level 3 Network Engineer" basically doing EVERYTHING:  LAN/WAN, VoIP, Firewall, Windows, SQL, etc.  And just because you are a "Level 3", doesn't mean you get paid a lot.  It's the opposite.

hi leo,

sorry but i would disagree. being a higher level network engineer tends to be, and should be, paid more since we're talking about level of expertise and years of experience in his field.

i would also say that a network engineer's salary would completely depend on how well the person sells himself to the employer during the interview process and his credentials/resume.

Hi John,

Yes.  I understand where you are coming from and what you are meaning.  But what I was implying about the ME is that even though you are doing all these task, bascially a jack-of-all-trade, you are paid, in comparison to other parts of the world with the same technical skills required, less.
