I do not understand how a person can be fit in software and hardware techs together.

php .net is software development whereas networking, LAN is network engg. huge difference.

one need to hire two people for these two different jobs. 

Please companies do not mix both fields.

NO doubt exceptions are thr but again why exceptional would like to work part tme :)


thanks!

They're only asking for basic networking skills - pretty standard in the geek skillset even for those of us with no formal training or involvement in the industry.

Small businesses need jacks-of-all trades, and such individuals do exist.

Yes its really only software but you need to know a little about basic networking to make it all work.

We have had two guys do this work over the past few years while they studied and they worked out great. We pay well and beer is free on Fridays (after work not during it)

I've worked with software engineering "grads" who has never seen the inside of a computer. Probably an exception but just saying there is the other extreme as well

If you're a small company, you can't afford to hire enough staff to only have experts in each field do their bit.  There are enough people out there who can do both, competently.  There are a fair few with an inflated self-estimation of their abilities, too.  I remember a developer who started trying to fix a company firewall while I was out at lunch ... thankfully they didn't finish, because they were about to delete a bunch of config files to "fix" it.

When I was a student I'd have been quite capable of doing both, and being a student, would have been quite happy to do this part-time.  I'm no longer a student, but work part time (4 days a week) by choice.

Plenty of geeks/students studying programming know basic networking, hardware and windows config.
