Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities at Progent

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

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified network consultants with CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's staff of help desk service technicians and remote support professionals. Also, We are hiring experienced managers able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive client services, and offering a strong results-focused pricing model, We have managed to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting support to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for our customers will expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Our focus on delivering network consulting and computer help to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who have recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, the fact that a certificate can not ensure expertise is no justification for not having one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then customers expect certifications. We can market your skills, but you should have a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, using custom software utilities to enable the maximum level of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and keeping customers.

The main factor that separates Progent from ordinary consulting companies is the excellence of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled top expertise across a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to do the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of daily drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting services can be done remotely, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs via information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for easy reference, current engineer availability is broadcast to streamline group projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our team is located throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals throughout America. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our sales and operations teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging each month. Progent recently marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers rely on consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing close customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
