The ability to use a scripting language (ideally PowerShell) to automate repetitive tasks and save time is important
A strong work ethic, great written and verbal communication skills, outstanding customer service orientation, and excellent troubleshooting and problem solving ability are all vital ?soft skills? you should have
The Fun Stuff You?ve Done That Could Help Seal the Deal
The ability to track down rogue problems is vital, so any work you?ve done with network and server monitoring systems will be valuable
Do you know networking? The more the better! Specific experience with Cisco switching, firewalls, and NAT is preferred
Any experience with SQL Server, and Citrix XenApp would be great to see
Any telecom experience (PBX management, phone station adds/moves/changes) is a plus
The Education and Certifications We?d Like to See
A bachelor?s degree in an IT related discipline and 5+ years? experience in server and network management or an equivalent combination of education and experience
Industry certifications are a good complement to your experience
