garretts: I Am Currently a Senior Field Engineer with 12 years under my belt, 5 years as a Field Engineer. Most Vendors wont allow you to support the Heavy Equipment Such as Servers/ Network until you have had at least 3 years of Field engineering work under your belt. Even when sitting Vendor Certifcatiosn you are required to have a few years under your belt before you can even sit the exams as the exams require you to have knowledge and experience.
Also IT is not about computers, It is about people. You have clearly Demonstrated that you have a lack of knowledge in dealing with people in the IT Field. Your Technical knowledge might be top notch as you say, but I suggest strongly you get some more experience in dealing with people.
oneroom: Well What you do in your work experience counts the most,
There is a huge difference between a guy who worked as a sys admin for 5 years and did the required hours and half of the time was watching you tube and dicking around while working vs someone who has being in the game for 2 years doing system administration work and working over time and being a productive and a innovative worker.
oneroom: yeah very true about that
when you look at the cv it looks flat,
but you have to communicate it and show that you went over and above,
I have that skill, some people say I should be in pre sales.
freitasm: Good luck to the employers...
