I've been out of the AF for 5 years now and I held a TS clearance when I served for 4 years.
Since I've been out, I have worked in IT for the last 5 years and am currently a contractor with a local MSP as a network technician.
I'm looking to reactive my TS clearance and find a gov't job anywhere. I mainly do network configuration for switches and some routing. I have my CCNA, Net+, and Sec+. Working on my CCNP.
Can anyone point me in the right direction for the process on renewing your clearance? Or do I need to just apply for jobs that requires one and let that employer renew it?
I'm a Jr. Network Engineer working as a contractor and I would like to start working for a VAR. I have a buddy who is a network consulting engineer for CDW and he seems to love what he does.
The only other big VAR I've hard of is Presidio but never heard much about it.
Has anyone worked for one of these bigger VARs? Any advice you have to get into one doing route & switch consulting? Or just any advice in general?
I am a Jr network engineer for a large oil company (contractor) and am looking to work for a large organization so I can have training, certs, etc paid for and better benefits.
Seems like working for Cisco would be a great way to have access to all the new technologies and unlimited training, hopefully better pay, too.
If it matters, I'm located in central California, so only a couple hours from Cisco headquarters.
Has anyone worked for Cisco (IT related) before? Pros and cons if you don't mind sharing.
I am a new Jr Network engineer on my team of 5 other Engineers and an architect.
I've been on this team for about 6 months now and have been looking around for what the team lacks and to where I can help out and make a name for myself on the team.
With that said, our company has decided to make the move to a COLO and will do so in the next 12-16 months. There's been some talk about ACI but none of the engineers know how to use it.
I'm thinking this could be my chance to step up and get a massive head start now by learning ACI, so that way when we move to the COLO and head towards ACI I can hopefully be the team lead for it.
Now my question is, has anyone had experience with ACI or has their company moved towards this?
What are some classes, books, training, etc. that I can get into now to learn some basics? What are some advanced courses?
I know ACI has been out now for a few years but it is still very new so I am not sure what training is out there yet.
Thank you all in advance for any input. I have had great success with this community in the past and am looking forward to the replies.
My company has a small site about 2.5 hours from our corporate office that has one 2960 switch in it to support an office of maybe half a dozen or so employees.
Anyways, I'm the new Jr. Network Engineer on the team and I've been tasked to replace this switch with a 3850.
I noticed in the config that the 2960 is running VTP 1. I am not sure if this office will ever be upgraded down the road and need further VLANs or not, but would anyone recommend putting VTP 2 or 3 on the new 3850 switch that is replacing it? Or just leaving it as VTP 1?
I played this game years ago and just started playing again a couple days ago. Said I had been gone for 860 days lol
For whatever reason, I decided to wipe my game and start from scratch.
I've accumulated 2 sugar lumps, where should I start applying these first to?
Says it all in the title.
I've only bought 2 sets of the 10+1 Premium multipacks so far.
