Career Prospects

For those just starting a career in networking, here is a short list of the available types of positions and networking jobs –

  • Network Specialist or Network Service Technician focuses on the setup, troubleshooting, and repair of specific hardware and software products. Service Technicians in particular often must travel to remote customer sites to perform field upgrades and support.
  • Network Administrator focuses on the day-to-day management of networks.
  • Network Engineer focuses primarily on system upgrades, evaluating vendor products, security testing, and so on.
  • Network Analyst/Programmer writes software programs or scripts that aid in network analysis, such as diagnostics or monitoring utilities. They also specialize in evaluating third-party products and integrating new software technologies into an existing network environment or to build a new environment.
  • Network Manager supervises the work of administrators, engineers, technicians, and/or programmers and focus on longer-range planning and strategy considerations.
  • Network Solutions Architect translates requirements created by functional analysts into the architecture for that solution and describing it through architecture and design artifacts.
