IT graduates definitely know or heard of Cisco certification. If you don’t know, then I really don’t know what are you studying this field for. I ever thought of taking it after my degree as something extra, which can help in getting employment but I didn’t go for it at the end. Don’t ask me why hahaha… I just got a bit fed up with IT that’s all hahaha… What kind of excuse is that?!?!
Anyway, I know many people who went for this certification after they graduated. It’s very popular among the IT professionals as this certificate can help them in there career. There are so many IT graduates out there, imagine so many of them went for the interview and only some with Cisco certification.
