CISCO Certification: A Must Have Certification

IT industry has been rapidly growing over the years. Many and many people has been switching into the world of computer but still there are still not enough professionals to fill-up the positions.

As time passes by, the qualifications for IT positions is getting higher and the numerous number of certifications has been a must in the content of every resume. High-salary paying companies prefer those people with great and reliable trainings and certifications.

One of the prominent certifications an IT professional can take are those by CISCO. CISCO offers trainings and certification for the vast world of computer networking.

Cisco certification has five categories: Entry, Associate, Professional, Expert, and Specialist. In college, we have taken the IP Networking (CCENT) as an elective in our curriculum. After graduation, most of my colleagues continued their CISCO training until Routing and Switching Associate (CCNA) and Routing & Switching Professional (CCNP). Many of them now are working in prestigious companies earning high salary.

Some of our schoolmates has joined the the CISCO competition and have won the contest. Besides the experience that they had from the the contests, some of them already has a job waiting for them after they had graduated. And those who have finished college already were hired in banks and big companies.

In the classified ads, there are bountiful opportunities for CISCO Certified Professionals. Many companies has included CISCO certification as part of there job requirement, thus, opening more and more jobs for IT professionals with high salary.

CISCO Technology topics includes the following:

  • data center

  • ip routing

  • networking fundamentals

  • network management

  • optical networking

  • router

  • security

  • storage

  • switching

  • telepresence

  • virtualization

  • voice / unified communications

  • web services

  • wireless

Taking CISCO certification is really a very good investment to yourself. A sure career and job will be waiting for you once you had your certificates.

My dream job was to be a networking engineer but due to lack of experience and certification, I was not qualified for the job. I am still planning to take my CISCO training maybe next year when my schedule would be a little flexible.

I want a simple and manageable template so that my blog won't have a chaotic look.

There are a lot of tweakings to do but at least I have started the design and layout already. Hopefully at the end of the week I will be able to customize my blogger site.

The next task would be to study how the blogger template works.

Life's Conflicting Don'ts

Don't decide when your angry
Close your mouth, don't let the words out
Once spoken, you can't take them back

Don't promise when your happy
You'll tend to forget and break someone's heart
Just be happy but don't get overexcited

Don't always let your emotions guide you
Not all the times you are doing the right thing
Sometimes it is better to trust your mind

Don't think so much, it'll give you headache
Go with the flow and everything will be okay
But never forget to think twice before you act

Don't say things you are not sure about
It is okay to accept and tell that you don't know
Otherwise, it will cause troubles and misunderstandings

Don't give 'much' attention to your critics
They give negative emotions and makes you pessimistic
When their words could help you grow, why not?

Don't always agree to others, sometimes they are wrong
Don't always disagree, sometimes they are right
When it is for the good then may then it is right

Don't blame others for your failures or mishaps
When in the very first place you have your own decision
It is for you to decide and plan your future
