Dear What am I Worth,
I am MCSE-certified and have been involved in various roles in the IT Industry for approximately eight years. I have just returned from Canada where I was employed by a computer and consulting company. My duties were everything from hardware builds to installations of NT4 server/ workstations plus software, as well as configuring network installations for the British Army based in Alberta. I was also required to handle the security setups for NT4 server.
I now work for a large Auckland company, which has regional centres, and I am solely charged with rolling out a half-million-dollar software package regionally. It involves the installations of fat clients and, when ready, HTML versions or Citrix. This involves solving any network troubleshooting issues that may arise, with the servers based here in Auckland and interoperability from within a Novell domain. My duties include desktop support and installations of a payroll/accounting package in Auckland (along with printer issues etc), this being between trips around the country.
