Q

CCNA training but no cert - can I get a job?

I've done some CCNA training, yet I don't have certification.

After I did some CCNA of my training, I worked for 6 months. Now I have pretty good knowledge of structured cabling, IP protocols, routers, switches, hubs, LAN, WAN, installation, and configuration.

My question is, is experience enough to get a job in networking.
Dear Sami:
Your experience is probably sufficient to get you an entry-level job as a networking technician, help desk professional, or junior system or network administrator. But alas, such jobs are rather scarce at present?depending on your precise location.

When the time comes to look for work, don't neglect your substantial "human network" of family, friends, colleagues, and acquaintances when trolling for good opportunities. The best jobs, as the old saying goes, are never advertised--so please don't rely solely on advertisements, online postings, or resume circulation sites to help you find your next job.
Good luck!
