Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge.

In practice, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably a poor fit.
