A second chance with Cisco

Being jobless for quite a long time, I have been asking myself – “With all my credentials, why can’t I get myself hired?” This has been consuming me for quite a while now. And I have arrived at the conclusion that maybe I am applying in the wrong industry, or I need to spice up my resume to be more ‘hire-able’.

The industries on the rise these days are those that provide services in information technology or IT. In fact, most businesses nowadays rely on IT to boost up sales, increase efficiency, cut costs and more – all to create a better bottom line. Hmmm… I know a little about IT, I just need to brush up on my skills, I needed to learn more about the nitty-gritty so speak, to make myself more competitive.

With this in my mind, I searched the web for the site that can give me the best Cisco certification program, a much needed program that will help me boost my career. My search has led me to The Cisco Learning Network, and a first glance at the site, I saw that they have a very comprehensive program from starters to professionals in the field of IT. These programs are Entry (IP CCENT), Associate, Professional, Expert and Specialist.

I am seriously giving them a thought… if I really want a career boost, I need to build up my arsenal. If I learn and understand how LAN, Routing and Switching, Network Security, and Service Provider all works, together with other CISCO related terms, I can have all those who turned me down before rushing at my door.

So, if you’re like me who has been in a rut for quite a while now, check out Cisco Learning Network and see the opportunities they have for people like us to get up on our feet again.
