Systems specialist

I'm a systems specialist and have managed to get my MCSE [Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer], learnt about Windows 95 in a network and furthered my knowledge of NT 4.

Dear What Am I Worth,

I have a CBC [Certificate in Business Computing] and got halfway through ACBC [Advanced Certificate in Business Computing] before I was offered a job as the network supervisor at a polytechnic.

In the three years I was at the polytechnic, I built the classroom network from a Novell and a UnixWare server and 50 PCs running Windows 3.1 to a 120 PC network with over half remote booting from the Novell server and connecting to four Citrix WinFrame servers.

From there I have experience in installing and maintaining Netware 3.12, Netware 4.11, NDS, NT 3.51, NT 4, Citrix WinFrame, NT Domains, TCP/IP, Linux and the other “boring” stuff such as PC maintenance and changing printer toners.

I’m working in Wellington as a systems specialist for an organisation with 90 staff based in offices around the country and working from home.

In the almost two years I have been here, I have managed to get my MCSE [Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer], learnt about Windows 95 in a network and furthered my knowledge of NT 4.

I have implemented a couple of Terminal Servers, one for administration from home and one to get our Sybase membership system out to the staff.

As well as the experience as DBA [database administrator] for our Sybase database, creating login scripts etc, I have worked with others maintaining Exchange 5.5 and IIS4 servers.
