“Follow your passion. You will shine when you truly love what you are doing.”
“Finish something, whether it is a degree or a certification. Nobody can ever take that away from you.”
“Be prepared and keep learning. When an opportunity comes you’ll be ready.”
This was just some of the advice and knowledge several hundred college students received from Cisco professionals during the first-ever Student Network Day at the Cisco Live customer education event in San Francisco today.
The event was designed to help students from the San Francisco Bay Area learn about technology trends and career options, and how technology skills can differentiate them no matter what career they choose. Some of the students take courses through Cisco Networking Academy, which trains people to design, build, maintain, and secure computer networks in partnership with community colleges, universities, and other organizations.
