A Job Description Done Right



  • I just wanted to say that I came across a job posting lately, actually in the same zip code as my residence, that I felt is what we should see more of in the IT field but sadly don't. To be honest, the feeling I get based on this job description most closely mimics what I felt about NTG upon both entry and exit. The thing that caught my eye most was the line about "independent continuing education" with the mention of a home lab. THIS is what we need MORE of, because it shows that the employer encourages growth in its employees. I will be interviewing tomorrow morning, so wish me luck. However, I was impressed enough that I felt this was worthy of sharing.

  • Hey, look at that...

    • Demonstrate attempts at independent continuing education (certifications, home network, etc.)


  • Sounds like a good job for someone who is pretty new in IT.

    For everyone else, it sounds like this "We want to pay you entry level pay for server projects and deployments"

    I'm not sure I read exactly that. To me it reads, "If you take the job now, at next to nothing, "eventually" you will work up to making lots of money and specializing. "

    The job actually is going to pay decent to start from what we briefly discussed on the phone, so that's not a bad thing. Also, from my brief conversation (I'll know more after tomorrow), it seems like the type of company that invests in their people.
