Details About Opportunities at Progent

Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and high-end network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, business continuity, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees who can join Progent's staff of helpdesk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is seeking talented administrators who can operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and offering a strong value-focused pricing model, Progent has managed to increase our customer list dramatically while delivering professional support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge through interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to delivering network consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

We are hiring technical professionals that have recognized credentials in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not having one. If you know your field, then most of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent will promote your talents, but you should have basic credentials for us to work with. In case you stand strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.
