Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals to join our staff of helpdesk support specialists and off-site support professionals.

Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring consultants who can show verifiable certification in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a credential can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent can promote your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. If you are strongly against the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.
