Well i've started my search for a new job in the NOVA/DC area but i'm having a hard time finding one thats networ centered. Most of them seem to be security and system administration based.If i do find one they usually require CCIE with 10 years experience on MPLS/OSPF/EIGRP lol . Any tips from some of the guys here on getting jr network engineer/network engineer position in the NOVA area?

I have a TS/SCI,CCNA, and Security Plus.

    It's plenty of jobs for network engineers here. They are all over the place. Check GDIT's site and a few other companies, its jobs for you. I saw 10 without even looking hard.

    They seem to all require more experience than i currently have.

    Well a title of Engineer is more of a senior level role. Your keywords should be junior network administrator/technician

    Yep, job that say "engineer" are likely to want enterprise-level experience with MPLS, BGP or NSX. You can't stumble out of a bar in Old Town without tripping over a NOC or two though. You might need to take on an overnight role to get some experience.

    Just apply, sometimes they just need seats filled you may get lucky. But as others have said NOC, is more where you apply now.

    If you have your SCI and 8570 certs, you should really have no problem finding something, if you aren't too picky.
    Most of the cleared work in NOVA/DC does not require a CCIE, if you see that in a job ad they are just trying to cast a wider net to attract candidates. Most of the time, all that's required is a CCNA or Sec+, depending on the job + a clearance.
    If you put your resume out on the job boards, it should take no time at all for the recruiters to start calling
