"Life of a Packet"

Early in his career as a network engineer, while interviewing at a large networking company, the interview team lead told Dan, "You have an impressive-looking resume. But we don't really care about that." He pointed at a whiteboard. "Tell us exactly how a packet is built, travels across a network, and arrives at a destination host, and don't leave anything out." Dan nervously stood up and started drawing and telling the story of the life of a packet. Heads nodded and he got the job, although he didn't stay long before he decided to go back to work at Clemson. Today, any time someone asks Dan how a network works, he stands in front of a whiteboard and tells the story of the life of a packet.
