- After the age of 35, entering the network industry requires a very good command of network technology.
When you are already 30 or 35 years old and you haven’t contacted network engineering in the past, I believe you will never want to spend a long time in basic positions if you decide to engage in this industry.
Fortunately, in the network engineering industry, there is a shortcut, that is, once you enter the industry, you can strive to become the top expert in the industry. How to do it? Choose Cisco certification or Huawei certification to apply for as your stepping stone to enter the industry. If you choose one of the most advanced certifications for network engineers to study, you can gain the technical experience of others accumulated in three to five years or even 10 years in just 3-6 months.
- If you want to become a network engineer after the age of 35, you should learn to take shortcuts.
There are many kinds of network engineers. For example, the most elementary one may be working as a network administrator in an Internet cafe, with a monthly salary of only 333 to 500 US dollars. A slightly better one may do weak current construction in a system integration or security company, with a monthly salary of 500 or 833 US dollars, but the salary of the construction personnel will be a little higher. Others who work as enterprise network administrator in enterprises usually earn 833 to 1000 dollars a month at most. If they are in the southern China, they may get 1,166 to 1,333 dollars per month. They usually manage thousands of computers and dozens of switches.
If you have passed Cisco certification or Huawei certification, you can be a technical engineer in some system integration companies, which is most people’s ideal post.
In the future, if you are very skilled, you can may be employed by Huawei as an after-sales network engineer or even a pre-sales engineer. If you are lucky, you can work in Party A as the director or an employee of the Information Department. Because jobs provided by Party A are stable, you can ensure your income and have no worries about your life.
The last stage is that you have got a thorough understanding of the whole system integration industry, and know how to do security weak current. At this time, you can take over the project yourself, and your annual income will be hundreds and thousands of times of that of a part-time worker.
Having said so much, in fact, you really don’t need to try and experience life from the original stage of a network engineer when you are 30 years old. You can directly become an expert as long as you can get Huawei certificate or Cisco certificate and master network technology.
- To become a network engineer after the age of 35, it is more important to have a proper learning method.
When you download a large number of learning materials from the Internet, you must lay a good foundation to master the technical details. You can learn by yourself or take part in training according to your needs. For people over 35 years old, if you want to become a network engineer, you should pay more attention to communication and discussion when you study. Many questions can be explained in the simplest language, such as why to use this thing, how to use it in the actual network, how to configure it, what the role of each command in configuration is, what some common faults are like, etc. As long as a person with work experience is taught in the most effective way, he will learn quickly. Take the way of communication, or encourage the students to directly ask questions when learning, because mutual communication is faster and more effective.
As long as you can learn quickly and effectively, no matter what learning method you adopt, it is a good on. After all, the result is more important than the process.
