Most of those jobs will be given to those from out of state, with strong IT/engineering skill sets. Also, the positions will not necessary be located in Atlanta.

Cisco spokeswoman Robyn Blum said the company is hiring, but did not confirm the 150-job number.
"We continue to hire in strategic areas of the business globally, but are not focused on a specific location," Blum noted. "While certain job listings might designate a preferred primary location such as California, in some cases the role can also be filled in alternate Cisco sites in the U.S., such as North Carolina, Georgia, Texas and Massachusetts."

The Cisco Campus in Atlanta is in Gwinnett Co. near 316.

There are many locally with strong IT/engineering skills too, but with any increase in jobs offered we will always attract newcomers.
