Cisco changer

Want to move out of TAC/ tech support on call. I am decent in python scripting and have a CCIE. How do I move to network engineer / QA role in companies like Arista/ juniper/ Broadcom or any other company. Suggestions? Referrals would be helpful

    CCIE carries little weight in strong or non-traditional networking shops, especially without experience of running a real network. Experience in TAC in valuable but might not be enough.
    Why would you pick network engineering?

      CCIE/JNCIE only helps to get your CV read by a human. I don't think most of FB/Google Network engineers hired have real world experience of running a production network. I know quite a number of guys from Cisco/Juniper folks landed at FB etc (without having production network background). yes, having it helps definitely.. All it takes is a killing interview, indepth protocols, programming aspects.

    If you can present and explain things well look at Sales Engineer / Solutions Architect in sales jobs internally. Lots of open positions and pay way more than you make now in TAC.

    There are lot of positions available for you. Start applying. It would be pretty easy for you to get a decent job since you are a CCIE and knows programming.
