Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end network design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks professionals to join our team of helpdesk service specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is looking for talented administrators able to perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and following a strong value-focused pricing structure, We have been able to increase our client list rapidly while providing consulting support to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information base, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your skills through interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Progent's focus on delivering information technology expertise and computer help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants that have verifiable certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a credential does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these certifications should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent can promote your skills, but you must have standard certifications for Progent to work with. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Progent will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose income because of regular commutes to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of our support work can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In fact, some of our team members do remote support only.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to streamline group tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via monthly team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated across California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding team of network experts from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures.

These high-performance factors behind our success are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong client relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent people skills or like working with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
