Do you have your Security+ and a CCNA? Are you looking for a job? You may be surprised at how many opportunities are available.
I often hear from recruiters looking for people and recently heard from Tim McAndrews at The Endeavor Group. He’s looking for people to fill multiple positions such as network administrators at the following locations:
I know Tim McAndrews through LinkedIn. I don’t know if he’s filling jobs immediately, or getting ready to fill jobs if his organization wins a contract. That might be a question to ask him if you’re interested. If you’re interested in any of these jobs, you can contact him here:
I jest, but you’ll find that the clearance becomes extremely valuable.
Tim didn’t tell me that any of these requirements can be waived. He probably wouldn’t tell you that either. However, if you don’t directly meet any of the requirements, don’t let that stop you from applying if you’re interested. People that write up the requirements often wish for the moon, but will accept much less.
For example, if you spent six years in the military being trained in IT and then working in IT, you don’t meet the education/training requirements directly. However, you might still be their best candidate.
Similarly, if you have the Security+ certification, but only passed one of the two CCNA exams, you may still be considered even though you don’t have the CCNA certification yet.
Tim is also looking for someone to fill a Database Administrator position. This position has three requirements:
- A CompTIA Security+ certification
- A Top Secret clearance
- SharePoint experience
