As in any industry, the best way to pursue a career in Wi-Fi is to network with people in the field. 80% of available jobs are never posted online. That is why we have been discussing how to communicate with WLAN industry professionals. That being said many jobs are posted online on WLAN vendor websites as well as job search engines such as www.indeed.com - Use search terms use as CWNA, CWNE, 802.11, etc
So who is hiring? There is a lot of different type of positions with the industry. A big problem in the enterprise is that numerous VARs are deploying Wi-Fi without any knowledge of Wi-Fi design and deployment. I would venture to say that their are more Wi-Fi positions available then there are qualified people.
VARs need people to perform site surveys. People are needed for design and deployment. People are needed for monitoring and troubleshooting. Wireless managed service providers (MSPs) also need people with the same WLAN skill-sets. There is also a lot of contract work available.
Those are some big figures. CWNE's never have trouble finding high-paid work. There is a huge demand for qualified CNWAs as well. Keep in mind that your value goes up when you have multiple networking skill-sets. For example, a networking professional with both WLAN and VoIP skills will be in high demand.
I have 20 years experience in IT and have configured and deployed virtualized environments as well as desk top and wlan (both Aerohive and Aruba gear). I have been a generalists working for a school district. I am now considering freelance work as a consultant, focusing primarily on wlan. Since wireless technology is expanding rapidly, besides becoming certified are there other tips on how to get your "name" out there?
