This is a huge point. We've had a LOT of trouble finding good network
engineers who have all of the previously mentioned "soft" attributes -
attitude, team player, can write, can speak, can run a small project - and
are more than just Cisco pimps. I cannot explain how frustrating it is to
meet a newly minted CCNP who has zero Linux experience, can't script
anything, can't setup a syslog server, doesn't understand AD much less
LDAP, etc. Imagine, an employee who can help themselves 90% of the time ...
Finding the diamond that has strong niche skill, networking, with a broad &
just-deep-enough sysadmin background has been very, very hard. I cannot
emphasize enough the importance of cross-training. Immensely valuable.

learn technologies like Active Directory
