Networking Devices Part 2 exam include:
to the pervasive effect of networking technologies and infrastructure,
all over the world in different spheres of life, there is steady and
increasing demand for skilled network professionals. Networking spans a
wide expertise range and network certifications, such as CCNA, CCENT,
Network+, MCP/MCSE , aim to
equip individuals with the skills needed to build successful careers in
networking. For many candidates the focus is usually on new job and
business opportunities, recognition and better compensation.
While it is true that certifications give individuals the opportunity to showcase their skills and talents, there must be realistic expectations. Achieving a certification is a sign of initiative – it differentiates you from the competition and is recognized by clients and employers. However, though certifications like other educational programs may confer advantage they do not guarantee anything.
GETTING OPPORTUNITIES ALSO DEPENDS ON YOUR CONTRIBUTION, ATTITUDE, EXPERIENCE AND MARKETING SKILLS. Candidates need to bear this in mind at all times. Certifications are NOT guarantees or “quick-fix”, shortcut career solutions. As you take advantage of certification, make sure you have realistic expectations and know how the certification fits into your career plan.
