Yet another strange message after I put out the post about a member passing and getting 2 job interviews the same week.
‘If the CCNA is so great, why can’t I get a job?’
I can tell you why just after reading your one line message.
1. You probably expect the job offers to come rolling in as soon as you pass the exam. The CCNA just gets your resume read. That is all. The rest is down to your personality and any experience you can show.
2. Your attitude probably sucks looking at your message. Instead of asking for advice you moan that life hasn’t gone the way you wanted it to. Would you hire you?
3. You need to apply for around 50 jobs per week. You need to be chasing recruitment agents. You need to be improving your skills even more by adding voice and security. You need to speak to all your friends, colleagues and family telling them that you are looking for networking roles and asking if they can get you in front of any network managers so you can demonstrate how enthusiastic you are.
4. You need to draw up a list of every company in your area and call asking to speak to the network manager asking if they have any openings for network engineers.
I don’t know anyone who had success come knocking on their door. Take Jim Carrey for instance. He drove to LA broke and homeless. He started doing stand up for free until he made a name for himself. After all his hard work he made the big time and demands $10 million per movie now.
