    I have been working at Cogent Communications full-time (more than a year)


    Very great job if you dedicated to sales and hard working. It is a great opportunity out of college and you can make a lot of money.


    If you are not hard working and looking for an easy job.. this is not for you. Also be prepared to know you will be cold calling every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything is pretty solid they run a very good opperation.

    I received a phone call from a recruiter who let me know that they found my resume online, one that I posted over three years ago and explained that they felt that I would be a good fit for a Regional Account Manager based on my experience.

    I then was scheduled to attend a mixer to meet with the recruiters. There were about twenty other candidates present.
