Dave is an aspiring network engineer and studying CCNA.
Gustong gusto niya talaga maging CCNA kasi 0-knowledge siya, galing siyang probinsya kung saan hindi kasama sa subjects ang Cisco. Wala rin pa rin siyang pera para sa training at para sa exam.
So what he did, he browse the net and look for tutorials. Plano niya muna mag-self study. Nag-set siya ng goal, sinulat niya sa papel, nag-gawa ng schedule at consistently followed that sched.
He studied a minimum of 2 hours per day. Day in, day out. Bawas gala, bawas dota and bawas tv.After few months of
After few months of consistent self-study and hustling on the side, naka-ipon na si Dave at nakapag-training. At dahil nakapag-self study siya, hindi na siya nahirapan. After another 2 months, he took the exam and passed. With 99% passing score.
He updated his resume and applied for CCNA related jobs. Medyo challenging. Pero he persisted. He never complains. Alam niya at positive siya dadating din ang time. This is what he wants eh.
After 3 months of applying for a job, he was hired as NOC. Now he’s using all the knowledge he has and happy with his work.
Now, on the other hand, meet Jon. Aspiring network engineer din siya at gustong maging CCNA. Jon thinks he knows a lot.
Madali lang naman daw talaga eh. He took training immediately.
Ayun, 2nd day pa lang ng training masakit na ang ulo. Information overloaded na. Pero natapos niya ang training.Astig si Jon, panay ang malaki at post niya sa wall niya about the training and about CCNA then pag weekends, nasa party at galaan.
Jon took his exam. Pero since hindi naman talaga siya natuto sa training, he used dumps. Siyempre nakapasa siya.
Post na naman sa wall ang kanyang certificate. Feeling niya sikat na sikat siya.
When Jon applied for jobs, he was asked to configure and do something technical sa mga interviews.
Kahit sa mga technical questions na i-explain lang ibig sabihin hindi niya rin ma-explain. Pero don’t forget CCNA siya ha.
Then he complains left and right. Hirap daw maghanap ng trabaho. Panay ang rant sa social media. Sana daw ibang course na lang kinuha niya etc. etc.1 year passed…
1 year passed…
Dave got promoted.
Ngayon, dahil na-promote siya libre na ang training pati ang mga susunod na exam. Dave was happy again.
Ayun, nag-trabaho na lang sa City Hall nila as office clerk at kinalimutan na ang Cisco. Pero he is happy kasi nakkpag-everwing at mobile legends sa duty. Yay!
See the difference idol? Be Dave, not Jon. 😉
