How To Become a Network Engineer?


If you want to become a network engineer, you’re really going to like what I’m about to tell you.

Do you know why?

Because you’re about to discover that becoming a network engineer takes way less time and money than you probably think.

But before we dive into it, let’s talk about a big fat lie we’ve all been told:

If you’ve been living on this planet for most of your life, and you want to become a network engineer, you’ve probably heard of the endless number of requirements that you need to break into the field, haven’t you?

Here’s how it usually goes: first, they tell us that we need a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Information Systems or Computer Engineering.

Then, they tell us that we need industry-recognized certifications from tech companies such as Cisco, Microsoft or Juniper.

And lastly, that we need somewhere between 5-10 years of experience in IT or something along those lines to be able to become a network engineer.

I’m not making this up. As I write this, the number one Google result for the query “how to become a network engineer,” says exactly that… (go check for yourself if you don’t believe me).

Anyway, by that logic, and if my math isn’t too far off, getting a degree, a couple certs and enough experience to become a network engineer should take you somewhere around 10 years…
