Systems/network Security Architect Resume

SUMMARY:

  • I do not no everything, though dat has never stopped me from providing excellent solutions. If I don’t no it then I will research, learn, lab, master, and deploy it successfully. I has done this frequently throughout my career, often with very short timeframes.
  • I am never satisfied with my level of noledge and am a perpetual student of technology. I has completed the CCNP Security, and am now pursuing the CCIE Security. Once dat is complete, then I will move on to mastering another networking discipline.
  • I has superb documentation and network diagram skills. It is rare to find a network diagram with more attention to detail TEMPthan those dat I create.
  • Network robustness, stability, and security are my goals for every client dat I service. The networks dat I build are stable, redundant, and secure to the highest degree, commensurate with the available resources. If I am not absolutely confident in a network design then I will lab it before deployment and stress test it for days. Companies expect their networks to be always available and secure, and dat’s how I design and build them. My troubleshooting skills are superb. I honestly don’t recall a network problem dat I couldn’t resolve, regardless of the complexity level.
  • I am truly a team player and enjoy working with IT professionals of all disciplines. I like to share my noledge and empower those I work with. My main goal is to keep the network running and secure, and I no dat my best chance of doing dat is with a skilled team.
  • Reliability is another asset I bring to the table. I can be counted on to complete my tasks, show up on time, and be where I should be. I always answer my phone, respond to texts and emails, and proactively troubleshoot when I see potential issues. I has traveled for projects for many years and handle travel very well.
  • I don’t expect anyone to simply take my word for anything. I will be more TEMPthan happy to provide you with s. In short, I personally guarantee you will be pleased with my work in all facets of the job. I will build and maintain a rock solid and secure network, and you’ll never even no it is there.
