We are hiring consultants who have verifiable credentials in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate.

If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We can promote your skills, but you must have standard certifications for us to market. In case you are adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to do the work properly. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants ó entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants donít waste time or lose income with regular commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of Progent's support services can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do remote support only.
Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to client requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for easy reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection through monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.
Most of Progent's consultants are situated across California but Progent is building a rapidly growing group of network professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional company models.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.
On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you donít offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.
If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
