Everyone has an #IChoseCisco moment – the one where you knew, “This company is speaking my language!”

It’s exciting when you find a place to call your own, where you feel like you belong and are accepted while you’re being challenged to take the next steps in your career.  We recently asked a few of our interns in Canada if they’d like to share their #IChoseCisco moment – here’s what they had to say:


Tianyi ZhangVancouver, Canada

Sales Development Intern – Commercial Sales



“#IChoseCisco because interns get to work on real company projects together with top company talent.”


Mark Henderson – Toronto, Canada

Partner Sales Development Intern




“#IChoseCisco because… the views. Okay maybe not, I chose Cisco because as a first year university student, I get to be enrolled in an all-encompassing business experience that will provide valuable skills applicable to all of my future endeavors. Plus, this technology is changing the world and who doesn’t think that’s awesome?!”


Kirthi Maguluri – Toronto, Canada

Product Manager Intern – Women Entrepreneurship Circle



“Cisco is the hotbed of innovation and cutting edge technologies. I was amazed from the very first moment when I visited Cisco’s new innovation hub in Toronto. I wanted to be a part of it and couldn’t wait to learn about their technology. Moreover, after learning about their great mentorship and DevNet programs for interns, I knew that this company would provide me with invaluable work experience and skill-set to conquer the tech world. Cisco is more than an internship, it’s a lifetime of an unparalleled experience.”


Rika Tatami – Ottawa, Canada

Public Sector Sales Intern



“#IChoseCisco because I want to be in a workplace where I’m surrounded by challenging problems every day and be able to contribute to projects that have real business impacts!”
