CCNA

by Kevin M. Hirahara In reply to CCNA

Hello,

The salary question is one of the most frequently asked questions. Aside from periodic salary surveys, current salaries may be obtained through searches on sites such as Dice or Monsterboard - simply apply a search using the certifications you listed.

The two major keys to understanding salary ranges (they can be vast) - The Regional difference and Years of proven experience.

Some factors applied during course of employment are not as clear cut (if those two above could be considered "clear cut") - The person's ability to work WITH the organization's business objectives and the ability to adjust to change.

In the IT field, change is everywhere and those who can adapt to it (whether that be an understanding of technical advances or acceptance and promotion to changes in the entire business model), are the people who will succeed and command the higher salaries.

Certifications may introduce one to the average salary range but it is the person's ability to adapt tochange and work with organization that will raise the salary bar beyond the average.

I hope this helps.

Kevin.

CCNA

Hello Martin,

I have seen salaries from $38,000 in the New Orleans area to $69,000 in the San frisco area. They were for Cisco administrators. I did not notice mentions of combinations of certifications. My interest was in passing, as I don't do that sort of work, but my nephew overseas had asked about job availability for inexperienced, certified individuals.

I favor CCNA over MSCE or lesser qualifications, as (i) the Microsoft field is getting crowded because of the earlier rush to certification and (ii) many individuals in companies have learned through experience or study and do the work themselves.

Whether ro not it is worth your investing in such qualifications, depends on where you're coming from. Remember too that everyone wants the person with 1 year of experience - they know quite a lot and aren't asking for top dollar yet. To start with, you'll need to take what you can get.

After you're in the job, your career is in your hands - the resume takes over from the certification.

Good luck,
Charles.
