Progent is hiring technical professionals that have verifiable credentials in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE credential.

If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers expect credentials. We can promote your talents, but you should provide basic credentials for us to market. If you stand strongly against the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom.
