Learning MPLS for interview

Recently talked to a recruiter for a Jr. Network Engineer position, I fit pretty well except for one requirement


I know its gone over in at the CCNA level but they are asking for experience in it, I believe if I learned advanced MPLS configuration knowledge will override experience

Anyone know some high level learning resources for MPLS?
To Script or not to Script, that is the question.

    Also "MPLS Layer 3 VPN" course on udemy.com is worth looking into.

    How bizarre that they would want a jr network anything to have experience with MPLS.

    Titles: that's how they get away with paying less.

    I guess you dont have much time to skill up but if it were me i would spend a little time understanding just the basic mpls vpn config and then spend the bigger chunk of your time understanding the concepts eg: RIB/LIB separation, route import/export etc.

    In my opinion the config is the easy part, since most of it will be templated in an established evironment. In my opinion Troubleshooting skills are more valuable like being able to veryify the route and path to/from the customer, what routes and sent/received, traceroute and ping verification etc. This shows you know what a correct config should behave like and why. Just my 2 cents.
