Summary of Remaining Job history for September 1984 to July 1999

The summary included here is to show the length of experience I have gained in the Information Technologies field not each and
every function preformed during this time. I have twenty one years of experience beginning in 1988 when I was named the System
Administrator for the Burke company tasked with installing their new Apollo UNIX CAD systems. Over the succeeding 4 years I
became the Senior Administrator responsible for 7 offices scattered over the United States and Canada. After the company
downsized the engineering department in anticipation of closing operations I took a year off of work to spend with my new born
daughter. I then went to work for Bechtel Construction providing network / system administration support to the Santa Clara
County Traffic authority. Over the following six years I worked for nine different firms in contract and permanent positions always
in an System or Network Administration roll. Always preforming duties normal to that generic job title primarily working with
Novell Netware and Windows desktop and eventually working with Windows server administration exposure. As I worked in these
position I have learned customer service, project management skills as well as how to quickly research problems to find viable
solutions. I have also picked up networking maintenance and design experience since in nearly ever case I have gone to work for
firms that have issues of one sort or another or that are just needing upgrading. I am currently waiting for a test date to obtain my
Cisco CCNA certification and willl follow by the obtaining the CCNP certification.
