Additional Facts Concerning Jobs with Us

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, disaster recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees to join our team of helpdesk support technicians and remote support experts. Also, Progent is seeking talented managers who can perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

Our commitment to delivering network expertise and technical help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and add significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals who have verifiable certification related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential.

If you know your field, then the majority of those certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent will market your talents, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for us to work with. In case you happen to be strongly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.
