In my last post I told you about my experience at the Assessment Centre for the Cisco Incubator Program.
Now I’m happy and excited to inform you that I passed and I’m officially a partecipant of the program! 😀
I already said how well the Assessment Centre was organized and how interesting the experience has been, but now I want to highlight the one thing I’m most impressed by so far:
Cisco management seemed to really take care of us as candidates during the AC and now as official partecipants. The most important example of this is that the Incubator Program manager is taking the time to call every single candidate to deliver personalized feedback about how they performed during the Assessment Centre!
This is awesome by itself, but you realize the word “awesome” is not enough when you know the actual number of call he his doing: 120+!!!
That’s really impressive! There will be 66 total partecipant in this program, but he is taking the time to call even those who didn’t make it to let them know what they need to improve. Again, that’s impressive!
Going back to the program, it’s composed as follows:
- Webinars: conducted every Wednesday and topics include Professional Development, R&S, Data Center, Collaboration, Mobility and Security.
- Seminars: conducted once a month at Cisco office via Telepresence and topics include Professional Development, R&S, Data Center, Collaboration, and Security.
- Cisco Academy: CCNA or CCNP courses, based on partecipant’s level.
- English language mentoring: those partecipants who need to improve their English can also benefit and improve their language skills thanks to the 1:1 technical conversations with native speakers.
The program looks as challenging as interesting and I can’t wait to start (seminars and webinars’ topic descriptions couldn’t be more interesting).
I’m quite lucky to be part of it and my Project:Me10 project will benefit from this a lot 🙂
