The following are the minimum requirements:

  • Team player with real-world experience delivering daily deliverables.
  • SharePoint competence, fundamental project management, sophisticated Excel, and PowerPoint skills for executive-level presentations are also recommended skills.

  • Thinks beyond the box and comes up with solutions to problems.
  • 8+ years of administrative support experience is required. A minimum of four years of experience working with a principle at the Director level or higher.
  • Previous work experience in the high-tech industry is preferred, as is past Cisco experience in the public sector.

We're looking for someone who can demonstrate:

  • Integrity, Authenticity, and Humility are three words that come to mind while thinking about integrity, authenticity, and humility.
  • Cisco's Core Values and Culture
  • Connected Extender - Able to develop relationships, influence, and work with several teams in order to complete tasks; no team can do tasks alone.
  • High EQ - can develop trust; can read the team and stakeholders to comprehend the 'temperature,' what's not spoken, and what's needed, as well as give team members with a wider picture view.

What are the benefits of Cisco?

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we work together to make a difference by powering an inclusive future for all. We believe in digital and assist our customers in making changes to their digital enterprises. Some may assume we're "ancient" (we've been around for 36 years) and solely deal with hardware, but we're also a software firm. There's also a security firm. We even created a network that adapts, predicts, learns, and protects itself. You can't put us in a box since no one else can do what we do!

However, without a culture that encourages innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure, "Digital Transformation" is just a buzzword (if you learn from it.)

We concentrate on the give and take on a daily basis. We give our all, set aside our egos, and give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We accept responsibility, take risks, and value diversity. Because there can be no progress without a diversity of views and a commitment to equality for all.

So, you've got a lot of different colors in your hair? It makes no difference to me. Tattoos? Show off your tattoos. Do you like polka dots? That's great. Are you a pop culture nerd? Many of us are in this situation. Do you have a passion for technology and the way the world is changing? With us, you can be yourself! You Belong Here!
