8 Things New Network Engineers Must Know | CCNA, Network+, JNCIA-Junos

I put out a tweet on Twitter a week ago listing some of the top hands on things/configurations that I think all new network engineers (or people who want to be network engineers) should learn and practice as they are starting to get into the industry. The tweet got a lot of positive feedback so I wanted to take it a step further and provide some additional context and information along with this list. The list is vendor agnostic and really applicable whether you are learning Cisco, Juniper, Dell, Arista, ect…

The list includes the following:
Create accounts/permissions
Create VLANs
Create switchports
Create trunk ports
Create layer 3 interfaces
Create static routes
Configuring logging
Learn show commands for all the above

What do you think? Am I way off or do you have some other ones?
