Cisco Network Engineer Intern

Cisco seeks a Network Engineer Intern to work within APJ Customer Proof of Concept (CPOC) organization based in Sydney, Australia.  The Intern would be working closely with the APJ CPOC team to deliver product and/or solution validation engagements that will aid in closing out sales opportunities.
