hello.. i have worked on cisco routers (2500, 4500) from around 95-2000 and have been doing some other work since then.. in trying back to networking i got my ccna a month ago and i thought i'd have an easier time getting a job since i do have cisco experience although not recent.. but it seems that the experience from 2000 is almost as no experience in talking with recruiters.. had no problem with the ccna and the simulations - cisco commands are pretty logical and straight forward and i'm very comfortable with tcp/ip.. so am i going to have to suck it up and settle for a help desk gig? i can understand they may be apprehensive of me getting into a network engineer position but i've had solid telecom experience and am very comfortable with routing, switches etc.. anyone have ideas on how i should approach my 're-entry'?
