  2. Hi Arav,

    Thank you for the compliment. I hope you will continue to find it useful. I do it mainly because it is the only way I can discipline myself to write up my notes in intelligible (?) form, but I hope that in the process it will also stimulate discussion and get me some contacts in the CCIE world.

  3. Dear Kevin Dorrell,

    I was looking at your blog, Kevin Dorrell’s CCIE Study Weblog
    and I thought our Q3, 2008 Job Market Statistics, providing a comprehensive picture of the Cisco job market including historical comparison of the demand trends, median salary and salary distribution would be of interest to you.

    Please take a look at Cisco Market Statistics ( ).
    Better yet, you can compare Cisco to another skill of your choice. You can also add variables such as location, role, and industry.

    Here is an example of CCNA versus CCNE versus CCNP. (

    Here is another example of how Vincent McBurney analyzed the data and created “How to kick start your Datastage career” (

    You can post a widget of the stats comparison on your blog or site or post any of the individual charts comparing Cisco to another skill to support any blog entry or article concerning the statistics.

    If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Thanks.

    P.S: If you choose to use the data, apply your knowledge, analyze and create an exciting post, let me know about your blog entry and I can provide exposure to your entry from our site.

    • I’m not sure about the comparison with CCNE. Is there some new Cico Certification CCNE that I wsn’t aware of? The only CCNE I can find is a nursing qualification, and there can be few people indeed who have expert level certifications in the nursing fild as well as in networking.
