Here is a chance for you to get a placement in Cisco Systems through the Cisco Networking Academy - Ideathon Challenge. You can register for a self-paced free course in Cisco Networking Academy even if you are not a NetAcad student already, and stand a chance to get a paid internship/full time placement in Cisco Systems. The process involves multiple rounds involving online tests and interviews. Last year 11 students from our college got placed through the Ideathon Challenge apart from the regular placement that happened through CIR. Cisco had paid Rs. 60,000 stipend during internship period and Rs. 13 Lakhs per annum for the full time placement.
