If someone can help me out with a job I'd pretty appreciate it. I have two years experience on networks and servers, I have my CCIE (R&S) written, MCSA (server 12), MCSE(cloud platform and infrastructure), MIcrosoft Specialist Azure, MCP (office365) MCTS (System Center Configuration Manager& INTUNE), CEH (version 9), CSCU. I'm also a graduate of Electrical Electronics Engineering.

I've tried applying for jobs online, I've gotten nothing so far. I tried Linkedin Networking, gotten nothing too. I'm trying physical Networking. I'm young and can adapt.
Still looking for a job with all these qualifications? Seriously?

Well, i wont say i'm surprised or not but these are the kinda things you'll need God's intervention for, its similar to a 1st class graduate looking for job. A proper deliverance is needed, i'll advice the guy to go for 3 or 7 days deliverance at MFM.

Well, it's not as easy as it is been written, likewise the pay.
Nowadays most IT companies do not only rely on your certifications, they want it being practical, like ; what can you really do either in isolation or within a team.

I know lots of peeps here with certifications all over.. go to LinkedIn you will see them flocking around with certs without any experience.

I am a Senior network engineer, it took me years of practices: trial and error to get there. I have a Lab at home where i simulate network scenarios during my off days.

You need devoted time to become an IT professional and then you start seeing the money flowing like water.

As an IT consultant you can't earn lesser than 500K a month except you don't know what you are doing.

God bless!!

True...

And to add, all these shouting cisco upandan, CCNA, CCNP etec, all that is just rubbish..you can do that and may not even get a job, clocking 8-5, thats fact. Infact, you most likely wont, because those are certifications even little kids are wielding.

If you want to be useful to yourself, first become a network technician before you metamorphose to a network engineer, if you want. that way, you know everything- in a new construction with a blueprint or floor plans, you can set up your entire data network from access points, comm rooms, cables, racks, switches and all. You can punch down, terminate your RJ 45 on modules and fix them on face plates, install them on walls, where a user will set up his computer. In the equipment, you know exactly where each wire or cable is going, you can tone to locate cables and patch them in, set up everything and genrally do plenty of management in there

To be a network technician, you are basically an electrician- albeit a low voltage one- you can set up data networks from cartons of cables doing cable runs- fishing cables through celings and walls, terminating them on patch panels, installing servers, and switches and installing and mounting racks, doing cable management and all- inshort you can integrate a data centre.

So interms of nomenclature, what are you? You are a low voltage technician/engineer, you are a telecom technician/engineer too (doing voice, video and data), meaning like i said, you can plan and design and install a data network, you can troubleshoot phones (66 and 110 blocks), do Voice over IP, install and configure IP Cameras (be it in shoprite, Next, or traffic cameras).

Knowing this prepares you to be a business man, doing cisco or all those certifications prepares you to be an employee- a big organization must have a network for you to manage, or administer, right? KNowing what i said above makes you confiddent- you can put in for any bid, or tell any developer developing, say- a hotel- 'hey, leave all your low voltage needs to me, i will setup your data network. For a small 50room hotel, you can collect N7m- labor, not materials.

You can put in for any bid- if EFCC are building their 23 storey headquaters, you put in for the bid- imagine running cables on 23 floors, installing access points, all over, communications cabinets on every floor, dropping everything down a main or central equipment room? If you have the capacity, you can collect N600m from there.

The only person competiting with you in Nigeria will be Huawei, but let Huawei take the big jobs of N500m or N1.2b, you will be pretty busy with all the small jobs within your neiborhood of N5m, N10m

How does being CCNA or CCNE help you? Can that help you fish a cat5 cable or fibre, through a hollow wall? or concrete wall for that matter? Or through a ceiling? Or mount a rack? Or install blade servers with hundreds of wires running underneath the floors? You must do all this before you go and start troubleshooting and subnetting and creating subnet masks, no? We are talking practical knowledge here.

And there are certifcations for this- level 1 installer, level II installer, copper, or installer fibre and the likes, then you move to OSP- Outside plant. Where the real big money is- those who run fibre optic cables outside- on poles or underground.

Learn all this, thank me later

How can one acquire the skill and how long does it take to learn one of them. The cost implication too[/quote

The cost implication is the sacrifice you have to make for a glorious future. Good things are not too cheap.

It will take you just about 3 months to become proficient in the Entry level courses that set you on the path of greatness and a secured future

You're one of the few very lucky ones and I am sure you work in the non IT sector.

I have had CCNA since 2007, CCNP, since 2012 recertified with a module of CCDP in 2015 all among other training like PMP and ITIL - bro, they price you like sh*t even with all that. I know there are exceptions though.

Wayaa007 I dont know your location but if you're outside Lagos, you need to move to Lagos ASAP, google IT companies, do extensive research and start submitting CV on the Island. Like you said you just came back from India in June, not too long if you ask me but i understand the frustration. My friend was in a similar situation in 2014, CCNA CCNP CCIE (exam), he even attempted the 8hrs CCIE practical but wasnt successful. The 1st job he got when he got back to Lagos from India was 80k, after 5-6 months, he got another place with 120k salary and less than 6 months, he got a bigger offer in PH close to 300k. So just exercise a little patience, do your research and pray to God fervently, i still recommend 3 days deliverance at MFM and i know your story will change.

PS: still waiting for you to contact me. Thanks

Thumbs up..It all about humble and little beginnings with consistency (hard/smart work) and gathering experience.
