two of my friends did CCNA while in college...one is now working in Java and other in SAP. So if you ask me, there was no benefit at all (keeping in mind huge coaching and certification-fee charges)...while on the other hand a relative of mine who passed engg after me is earning more than me :D
I would say you need correct timing and luck to get the right job to match your qualifications

Starting package could vary from 3-4 lacs/annum

well if u ask my opinion networking is the field first of all require hard work through life(updation require all the time... ccna>ccnp>ccie) and patience..
and @ pulkitpopli2004 there are plenty people who has ccna certification... its rather to say there are very less who has ccie!!
and to even attempt ccie u need good knowledge + more that 5 yrs experience too

Hi gagan,

I am not an engineering candidate. So well i am pursuing my career in B. Sc. in IT in the last semester. Even I am eyeing for networking job. I am a fresher to this field. Now i am finding it difficult to locate the smaller firms pertaining to this field in bangalore. I have completed CCNA, after getting placed i am planning to do CCNP or CCSP.

But can you please guide the some firms which recruit for freshers. salary no constraint. I need an exposure thats it.

Doing CCNA only does not benefit at all. CCNA+CCNP gives more opportunities. as to how much one can expect, it depends on job role and company.

Ya its is good choice . But dnt expect much in terms of package since a fresher is considered inapt to handle live networks . But as you get experienced you cn demanda lot.

As far as i knw there are a lot off CCNP's in the market and i am one of those .

Go for CCSP instead of CCNP.......
You'll have to continue an extra course after CNNA if you are opting for CCSP.....

That's to cover the basics of CCSP......

Lots of boys want to make their career in networking that why they get interested in CCNA and CCNP. Well, i must say that if you are really want to pursue your career in the field of networking then CCNA is a good starting point for you. In CCNA certification course you will get the knowledge about installation, configuration, operation and troubleshooting part of LAN and WAN.CCNP is next level certification in which you earn the knowledge like security features , how you can plan networking professionally, implementation process and much more. So, i would suggest you to start from CCNA. After these certification courses you can apply for the post of network engineer, system engineer, network and system administrator, Lan engineer, Wan engineer and much more. BEST OF LUCK

Hi,

First thing - You are on right track. CISCO Courses like CCNA | CCNP | CCIE have tremendous scope.

The starting step to networking knowledge is via CCNA training.

Similarly the higher end version of network training comes about with CCIE training.

The CCNP certification is appropriate for those with at least one year of networking experience who are ready to advance their skills and work independently on complex network solutions.

CISCO Certified Jobs - Many jobs are available in these fields and even a fresher also get a high salary.

Thanks

You need to learn at least one server OS like redhat or windows server doing CCNA or CCNP don't have any opennings most organisation are looking for people who knows any of the above mentioned OS with CCNA or CCNP.
