Career Change with Zero Experience
Eric Hahn used our site to make a career move.
"I used howtonetwork to get my CCNA. Before 2015 I had no experience in IT...period. I was a Sergeant in Corrections. I soon landed my first networking job, as a Network Specialist for a large ISP. I busted my butt and was promoted to Network Engine 1 on Nov 23rd, beating out many with more experience.
So I went from no experience whatsoever to Networking Engineer in less than 11 months. I have no college education and I'm 38, no spring chicken. I credit this entirely on deciding on your material when I began my studying.
CCNA Opens Doors
Nathan made more progress with his CCNA than an IT degree!
"Getting Cisco Certified has been one of the best things that have happened to my career. I have learned two important concepts working in the industry. A degree will open doors up for you, but certifications keep you in the conversations.
If you can't hold someone's attention with what you are saying, then it could mean your job.
James Lands a Network Engineer Role
CCNA leads to big job change.
"I have been in the IT field for quite some time and have had a few great positions. After several years I finally decided to go after my CCNA. After hunting for online IT training, I found howtonetwork.com. It was tough but after two months I had both by CCENT and my CCNA.
As a result of obtaining those certifications, I was hired as a network engineer at a local logistics company.
I'm happier than I've ever been, and I'm finally on a really good salary. I am currently studying for my CCNP.
Dale Became a Network Architect
CCNP and MCSA helped Dale make huge progress.
"During 2015 I passed my Cisco TSHOOT which earned me my CCNP in January. in November I passed and earned my MCSA 2012 certification. Oh yeah, I also got my CTT+ certification during the year. All in all not a bad year. Two major certifications done.
I am currently a corporate trainer for Dell, training field deployment engineers on Microsoft, Hyper-V, and Networking. On January 2nd of 2016 I moved to a new role within Dell as a Global Principal Architect for Networking.
Certification Leads to Pay Raise
Brian jumped 8% and then 6% in salary.
"I was trying to enter into the IT field but with no formal schooling, I didn't stand a chance. I started down the Certification road. Passed two Microsoft exams, landed my first IT job. Since I joined www.howtonetwork.com, obtained 3 Certifications (A+, Network+, VCA-DCV) which followed with a 8% raise and a 6% end of year bonus.
The training on www.howtonetwork.com is by far better than other choices. Howtonetwork.com is cheaper, better quality, and the only choice; best investment ever!!!
