Still Routing Around

I've had a bunch of life changes this year but I'm still here and getting back into the swing of things. I've been primary planning, designing, and implementing LAN technologies the past 18 months. SDN is really starting to take off and I want to ride on the coat tails of it along with data center design.

I'm back to studying CCNP R&S again and it's a lot easier to dig into it with the network experience I've gained compared to my first attempt 4 years ago. I'm only about 1/4th through the FLG Routebook but I plan on keeping a steady past. Network projects and after hours maintenance is a huge killer on persistence along with general life.

My immediate goals have changed a lot but the end goal is to own a business of my own of some sort. I've tried a lot of difference things and experienced a lot of different failures but I plan on pushing on and just work smarter and harder.

  1. Hey Shawn,

    I know this might be an unorthodox method of reaching out to you but I figured it was worth a shot. I'm not sure of your current long or short term career goals but I do have an opportunity in the St. Louis area. I am a IT Recruiter out of Dallas and support our company nationally and I'd love to assist you in anyway in your career.

    Right now I am working with a client and they are looking for a Cisco Network/Voice Engineer to share responsibility for the design, implementation, and support of LAN, WAN, WLAN, and VoIP technologies at Huttig Building Products. In addition to daily support responsibilities for Huttig’s St. Louis data center and 27 U.S. distribution centers, the Cisco Network Engineer will participate in the ongoing replacement of traditional voice PBX’s at the distribution centers with Cisco IPT (UCM, UCCX, Unity, and Jabber).

    It is a temp to perm opportunity and if it is a path you would like I would be happy to work with you. Even if this isn't the position for you, let's set up a time to talk and we can find out what is.

    Look forward to hearing from you!
