Strong.

Adobe, Proofpoint, 1800 Contacts, L3 Communication, EMC, HP, Bluehost/EIG, Mirantis, Vivint, Ancestry, and Oracle immediately come to mind.

Dude... OUTTA MY "HIRE ME" THREAD !!



Seriously, you sound like a better match for that one than me. I'm strong on Service Desk, but only capable in Cisco and only conversationally fluent in Linux.

Gotta network bro

You already in UT? Or just looking for a potential move?
Link Posted: 11/6/2015 7:35:17 PM EDT
Potential move.

If it happens, it will be somewhere in the Lehi area. (or an area in legitimate commuting range to there - this is non-optional)
That will be a separate thread.
Right now I'm just getting an idea of what I'll experience on the job hunt.

Do you have a resume you would feel comfortable sending to me? I know a bunch of people at most of those workplaces I mentioned -- shouldn't be hard to find out what you'd fit into.

I honestly think DarkCharisma may be over qualified..I spent a year and a half on that NOC, Amish sounds like a good fit. I may or may not sit in on those interviews.

Dark we have no Tier 3 openings right now but I'll keep you in mind if I hear anything.

Btw, down in Lehi area there is Adobe which is a great company to work for.

DC, Lord - Linked IN name sent.

I've tried to make it complete, but I'm not sure it really shows the full Jack-of-All-Trades aspect of what I did. Being a central Service Desk, we handled some aspect of everything from basic MS Office questions through the fun stuff - confidential HR terminations, internal application support, hardware and software troubleshooting, network, IP and VPN troubleshooting, documentation, training, mentoring, change control, process and policy creation, SLA and metric creation and monitoring, etc.

We did just enough of everything to have a clue and be able to fix most things, but large company siloing of functions kept us from getting into any of it deep enough to really be proficient in depth. As an example, I could fix all but one aspect of a hybrid hosted Exchange user account, but that one aspect was often the one keeping the account from working. We could pinpoint a synchronization failure between DNS and some of our DHCP servers, but we could not fix it. We were the ones to diagnose that the RSA security DB replicas had stopped syncing, but were not able to restart the sync. It got a bit frustrating trying to convince the people in those silos that their stuff was broken when they hadn't noticed anything wrong.

Don't get me wrong. I LOVE being a Jack-of-All-Trades type of tech. It provides a wonderful perspective and the ability to visualize an entire process, then drive it from design to implementation. It was the limits that chafed - only being able to do these things for internal department projects but running into political roadblocks if we wanted to extend them any further.

I'm hiring both a server engineer with VMware, Citrix and Windows experience and a network engineer with at least a CCNA but prefer a CCIE. PM me for linkedin details.

Now that I have a Linux cert and a working background in Cisco, it doesn't look like the family will be relocating. Isn't that just the way it goes some days?



Thanks all.

Pretty good. But with the "tech corridor" in Draper pretty full-up, all of the new companies are setting up in the north end of Utah County, so 1/2 to 2/3 of the jobs advertised are now down there.

Eventually, they'll move the prison and free up a LOT of space in Draper for more companies to come in, but that won't be soon.

Just found this thread. Is the IT market still decent? My wife and I are thinking about making the move out. Our first child will be here in late Dec. and we are thinking be a good time to relocate.
I have solid background with MS, SharePoint, SQL, Azure, Microsoft cloud, AD IIS etc.

Thanks in advanced

Edit to add we love skiing so any recommendations on housing close to ski areas would be great

If you can't get a good IT job in Utah, there's something very wrong with you.

Edit: And almost all the IT jobs are within an hour's drive of multiple resorts.
Link Posted: 10/25/2016 7:37:02 AM EDT
Stop temping me. I haven't been in my current job long enough to be ready to move.

Thanks! I figured SLC area would be good. I want to avoid town as much as possible, currently live on an acreage in the woods (well as much as can be for Iowa)

SLC is densely populated. You would have to go an hour and a half east, west, or north from the major metro area to find any sort of largish acreage. Most of populated UT (Provo and SLC areas) are suburbia.
