CCIE without enterprise experience
Hello, I would like to know if there are any people who obtained the CCIE without gaining real world enterprise environment experience i.e administering and running a NOC environment/Trading Environment etc. Can there be an CCIE formed from pure books smarts and plenty of lab time? Is this a good career move if you cannot get into a NOC but want to break into one? Maybe just a CCNP and not even an CCIE is this recommended? What if employers look at your resume and see that you have a CCNP and never worked in a live working mission critical network but, just did regular helpdesk work? I guess what I am saying is if I can't get into a NOC but continue to pursue Cisco certs will this help?
