Can someone get a Computer Networking related job at Cisco, based only on Certifications (minus a degree) ?

Thank You, in advance.

    There are a few people on this job that work for Cisco. You could always send them a message and ask what's up.

    I assume they'd laugh you out of the building if you show up with only CompTia certs though.

    Not if they're applying for an admin assistant position!

    Show up to interview with Network+ and explain how you don't believe in vendor-specific certs. HIRED!!!

    Do you have any experience? Degrees are not really a big thing here, at least in the area that I work. Certifications are looked well upon, but experience and passion are the keys in this culture.

    Degrees aren't as important as skills, certs and experience imho
    BS, MS, and CCIE #50931

    Agree with this, for networking. Good friend of mine runs an AT&T data center, has a BS and MS in CS which landed him a management positions (so it obviously helped), but let his CCNP expire and it has cost him some opportunities with Google and Amazon.

    @ OP I've seen the CCNA work miracles for entry level employees. It's the only "entry" certification that I have seen do anything for anyone on a regular occurrence.
