Additional Facts Concerning Jobs at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent wants to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals who have CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers.

Our focus on delivering network expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants who can show recognized certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Still, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no reason for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these certifications should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you are a professional, then clients expect certifications. Progent will market your talents, but you must provide basic credentials for Progent to work with. In case you happen to be strongly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.
