I find this (and many other) job postings a bit funny. This job say it REQUIRES CCNP Certification and then say the job will be pulling wires etc. So how much do you think they will be willing to pay? The average pay for someone with CCNP is almost $100,000 per year!,-CA.html
@Unknown, all job postings have humor in them. The reason why is, as you point out, that aside from the list of qualifications, you need someone who can work well with others, has an "Everything is awesome!" attitude and is willing to learn.

Also, let's not forget that school districts can't pay what folks make in the "business world." That aside, these jobs offer budding technicians and networking staff the opportunity to learn and grow, to become better than they are in service of worthy goals--making teaching, learning and leading possible through increased networking.

With appreciation for your observation,
