Additional Facts Concerning Jobs at Progent

Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants with CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data protection, and VMware.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable certification in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect credentials. We will broadcast your talents, but you should have standard certifications for Progent to work with. If you happen to be strongly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

In fact, some of our team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building close customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth.
