Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco certification; security professionals with CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end network design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, disaster recovery, data protection, and server virtualization.

Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

We are looking for technical professionals that can show recognized certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those tests should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. We can promote your talents, but you should have a baseline of credentials for us to market. If you are adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.
