Details Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and high-end system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals who can work on Progent's team of help desk support specialists and remote support professionals.

If you are a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for our customers can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Our focus on delivering network expertise and technical support to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and add significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants who can show verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". However, the fact that a certificate can not ensure expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent will market your skills, but you must provide basic certifications for us to market. If you happen to be adamantly against the idea of credentials, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running custom application utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and retaining customers.

The main factor that distinguishes us from most consulting firms is the high caliber of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other key application, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on major jobs by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to do the job efficiently. We will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with regular drives to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of our consulting work can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to client requirements through information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, current engineer availability is published to streamline team projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of our team is located throughout California, but we are building a rapidly expanding group of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional company models. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our sales and administration teams match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging each month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
