We know many of our Cisco Networking Academy students are interested in finding a job with Cisco. To help you with the process, we have a couple things you can do to make the most of your efforts.
- One, attend our Virtual Job Connection event.
- Second, watch our on-demand webinars.
On 28 September 2017, our employment program - Networking Academy Talent Bridge - is hosting a Virtual Job Connection event. During this event you will hear about specific job openings available around the world at Cisco offices. Recruiters are searching for qualified NetAcads to fill these roles.
- Open positions will be featured that are an ideal fit for those of our NetAcad college or university-level students and alumni who have at minimum taken the CCNA2 course. But would be even better suited for those who have their CCNA certification.
- Inside perspective on what hiring managers are looking for in candidates to join their team.
- Learn more about these job opportunities so you can better tailor your resume and application.
- Learn about job options that you might not have realized you are qualified for based upon your education and experiences.
Keep in mind, this event is designed for college/university level students. Ideally, your GPA should be at a 3.0 or higher for entry-level positions at Cisco.
