What should you be bringing to the table? Besides a smile and true grit, you’ll need:
– 3+ years of Microsoft Server Support. We think Linux is cool too, but most of our clients are using Microsoft Windows Server 2008 or 2012R2. And don’t forget about Exchange and Office 365 experience.
– 3+ years of Hyper-V, Citrix, and or VMware experience – Experience with clustering, high-availability, and VSphere are the order of the day here. You already know what a LUN is, and have some experience with SANs too.
– 3 to 6 years of Windows Desktop Support. Mac experience is also helpful, as is mobile device support. To be relevant, this needs to be commercial level IT Support of a business environment. This won’t be your primary responsibility, but you should know your way around for the occasional escalation ticket.
– 3+ years of Cisco/Sonicwall experience. You don’t need to be a routing expert, but you should understand the difference between WEP and WPA. Terms like VPN and LAN should be a part of your vocabulary. You should understand VLAN tagging.
