I just passed my CCNA exam but I have no idea how to face the world and apply for jobs because I have zero hands-on experience. Do you know how I can get hands-on routing experience via the Internet.
I can understand your dilemma. Hands-on experience is very important and being a CCNA you are expected to meet some requirements. I would suggest you get a hold of at least a pair of routers with cables so that you can practice different scenarios. Another option can be to have a Linux box which can work as a router once you start routing daemon.
There are a few other options which you can try like routing software from Boson which works as an actual router (with some limitations of course). This software can be downloaded from boson.com.
