Apply online

Of course, you can also apply for jobs through Cisco's hiring website. If you choose to use their site instead of ours, don't forget to come back to StartWire and tell us about your application so we can help you keep an accurate record of where and when you applied. You might not realize it, but keeping an organized job search record is one of the most important factors when it comes to getting a job.

The Cisco Application Process

For this application guide, we applied for a position as a Systems Engineer. Though your application is likely to be very similar to ours, it is possible that your experience may vary from ours depending on the position that you are applying for.

Before you can begin filling out the application itself, you will need to register on Cisco's hiring site. To register, you will need to provide your email address, an account password, the method that you learned about the job (whether that's a job search site or Cisco's own site), and answers to four security questions. Yes, setting up your account with Cisco requires more information than most employers request, but they make up for it with their very streamlined and applicant-friendly application.

After you register, you will be taken directly to the job application. The entire application is only one page long, and it's incredibly user-friendly. If all online job applications were like this one, the job search process would be a much friendlier experience.

Over the course of the application, Cisco will ask you to provide many pieces of personal information including your name, home address, phone number, travel preferences, email address, relocation preferences, education, work experience, and certifications (if applicable). Before you begin the application, make sure that you have accurate employment and education dates on hand. Sometimes it's easy to put a little bit too much trust in our memories, and we can get a start date wrong by a month or two. This information is very likely to be verified by Cisco, so you will want to make sure that it's accurate.

Once your personal information is entered, you will have the opportunity to provide your resume and cover letter. We highly recommend that you take the time to customize these documents both for Cisco and the position that you are applying for. This is your chance to demonstrate a legitimate interest in the company, and explain exactly how your previous experiences have prepared you for the job that you are applying for. Yes, it can be a pain to rewrite your resume and cover letter for each job you apply for, but it's definitely worth the time and effort.
