Mr warren Congrats to you ., th e latest network engineer, so happy for you because its been long awaited. Pls make do of this best oppurtunity and be the best
Congrats my friend. I'm sure we are all hoping to get a job as well one day. Thanks for the motivation. Now that I know the industry is at least looking at CCNP, I personally will continue to push for the cert. I hope from time to time you can come to us on line, and share some of your daily on-the-job experiences. Once again congrats on the accomplishment.

Great job Warren, I'm sure you'll be settled into your new position in no time. I concur that these certifications hold a higher value than some other technical certifications (that I have personally held) simply because they're almost impossible to pass without knowing and understanding the material - memorization will not get you though these tests.
I almost cried after reading your post, such a touching and encouraging post.
As i am working as a software engineer but my passion is NETWORKING
i know how it will be if we get the job which we love to the core.
Day by Day i used to think will it worth to keep on reading about NETWORKING
but after reading ur post i decided ill never give up until i reach my goal.
Am very much happy for you friend
Thanks guys, and please do Brett, even though my environment is only 50% cisco, the rest is HP, they asked to see my CCNP cert but didn't even ask for HP certs, they said the CCNP held all the confidence they needed to prove my technical knowledge, well that and a little on the spot test......
I'm very happy in my new job....now to put a business case forward to replace all the HP core switches with cisco
Sounds fun Warren. I started the same thing 8 years ago in my organization as far as replacing HP with Cisco. With 40 sites and limited budget, it has taken that long. I only have a few sites left to go and I'll be done. I actually learned networking on HP switches even though I had my CCNA. Performance and much better features were worth the cost in my Cisco migration from HP.
Just wanted to let you know that your post got shared with quite a few people in supervisor positions. Thanks for taking the time Warren. Any chance you are going to be at Cisco Live? I'm going to be going... hoping to get to meet some people that I've been seeing here on the Cisco Learning Network.
