Additional Facts Concerning Jobs at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers with Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, disaster recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees to join our team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is looking for experienced administrators who can perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client care, and offering a competitive results-based fee structure, Progent has been able to increase our client list dramatically while delivering consulting support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our customers will enhance your skills via interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show recognized credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you need to have standard credentials for Progent to market. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income because of regular drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for on-site customer work is based on your own time table, not ours. The best part is that much of our consulting services can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do remote support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to customer requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction 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 communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.
