Hi there, could anyone give advice on the best way to secure a junior position in VOIP ?
I never see any junior/grad. positions advertised.
I have theoretical knowledge i.e. CCNP voice and a networking degree, but now need some hands on experience to solidify and build on that knowledge.

Any advice would be welcome.

I like the look of this job listing to get a foot in the door with Lync:

The problem with CCNP voice is that it's a Cisco qualification ultimately designed to help implement a CUCM solution.

My recommendation would be to become a Wireshark expert. If you're not already it's an absolutely essential skill to get anywhere in the VoIP world. You need to be able to look at SIP packets and understand what's actually happening, and Wireshark makes this a whole lot easier.

fran1942,

wireshark will help you no end as will asterisk or any free sip server you can download and play with. cisco is fine but proprietry. look into Pfsense as well and utilities like winscp and putty. In the meantime look at reselling 2talk or similar products to get some cash coming in and learning the industry until you get a job or start your own business.
