how much does a cisco network engineer get paid?


Like approximately. Someone with exp on the low end of the scale. These are the requirements:

Quote:
Experience in the following technologies or familiarity of how they work:
All platforms of Cisco routers and switches (2600 XL, 3700, 7200, 2950, 6500)
Cisco Load Balancing Devices (Content Services Switch, Global Site Selector)
Cisco ASA (Adaptive Security Appliance)
IBM ISS
Qualys - Qualys Guard
Experiencing with Monitoring Tools (IBM NetCool, ArcSight, Netscout, Cisco CSM)
Experience with routing protocols (OSPF, IBGP,EBGP)
Experience and/or knowledge with Remote Access Technologies and VPNs (IPSec, SSL)
Tacacs, Radius, SSH, RSA Ace Server,Multicast and IP/TV,Syslog collaboration
Knowledge and experience in configuring and troubleshooting T1, ISDN, MPLS, DS3, Sonnet, Metro Ethernet and LAN/WAN internetworking.
And how hard is this stuff? I don't know what half this stuff is. lol Is it all point and click? Or would I actually have to know this stuff in and out?

Smile better hit the books

They're looking for someone serious man. Most of this stuff is CCNA/NP curriculum. That being said it never hurts to apply , I apply to all kindsa stuff even though im happily employed and ask for the sky. Alot of the times so are they, glorify your abilty to learn and what skills you do have. As per the salary aspect check out salary.com will give you a decent idea. Good luck man = )

The only reason I was considering it was that it's an opening in my company and I'm sick of being stuck at the bottom of the ladder.

Thanks though, I'll check out salary.com.

No harm in trying man , I wasnt trying to discourage ya! Especially if its the same company you can use your previous track record to your advantage ! If your thinking of moving on up the corporate ladder you might try and go for some certs. Cheapest easiest way to move up. check out some of the study material at techexams.net and if your good at testing the transcenders are AWESOME. I hope you find what your looking for man
