“Discovering NetAcad and studying CCNA changed my career and my goals. It was a colleague who told me, “study CCNA, it will be good for your future,” and he was right. After I completed CCNA, I decided that I wanted to change my career and work for Cisco, so I started studying English in Edinburgh. I had interviews for the CSAP program, but I did not have a degree, so I ended up studying a degree in Software Development. When I completed my degree, I applied for a job in Cisco Spain as part of the NetAcad Team, I got the role and after a year I moved to the Technical Team in NetAcad! Now I am a technical manager for Europe, and I am so happy to be able to help shape other people’s future as it happened with me!”

I was introduced to the world of networking and I wanted to dig deeper. I quit my job in 2009 to pursue certification in security. Around 10 months later, I completed my certification. This certification has been like Goddess Laxmi for me, bestowing prosperity for my career. I did my second certification in 2016 CCIE in data center.
This helped to push my career further. My first on-site job opportunity came knocking due to this certification combination. I have never looked back since. I can only say one thing. In 2009, my decision to pursue CCIE Security was absolutely correct.”
