After months of hard work, studying and doing labs you have the feeling you truly know how routing protocols work. Your boss decides to upgrade your salary and your title from Trainee to Junior network engineer and you will be responsible for daily maintenance for the network. Your senior network colleague (who is a true Guru but also very chaotic) is away for the the day and you are unable to reach him. Some users called you and complained about unreachable servers and slow links. It’s 8:00am and they need to have access to the network by 12:00am. Time to show your boss who the new Guru is and perhaps get another salary upgrade!
