Recently I applied for the graduate Associate Networking Consulting Engineer (aNCE) position with Cisco and I wanted to share with you my journey.
In a nutshell…The aNCE program is an intense 6 month program delivered in Poland, Krakow and focuses on developing aNCE’s into fully fledged Network Consulting Engineers (NCE’s). After successful completion of the program, aNCE’s are placed within their specified delivery team where they will hit the ground running by leading and solving technical challenges on a daily basis.
After applying for one of the positions, if your CV is shortlisted you will be contacted by Cisco to arrange a short telephone call so that they can find out more about you as a person and why you would like to work for Cisco.
This is not a technical interview ‘YET’ so no need to worry about that at this stage however be prepared to talk about:
- Your CV
- Your intentions for joining Cisco
This interview will last approximately 30 minutes and may be conducted via Telephone or WebEx. It is worth ensuring you are in a quite place where disruption is minimized.
Should you pass this initial stage you will be contacted via phone and email to schedule the next stage of the interview process.
Have you applied for an aNCE position or are you thinking about doing this? Let us know, join in with the discussion and share your experiences.
Note: aNCE has been renamed to Associate Consulting Engineer (ACE) and engineers would join the Customer Experience (CX) organisation.
