Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and high-end network design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals who can join Progent's staff of desktop service specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and offering a competitive value-based pricing model, Progent has been able to expand our customer base rapidly while providing professional services to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our customers will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's focus on providing information technology expertise and technical help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who have recognized credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a credential does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you are an expert, then clients expect credentials. We will market your talents, but you must have basic credentials for Progent to work with. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

The best part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, representing 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to client requirements via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving.

With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through.
