First Data Center job

Hello everyone:

It has been a while since I have posted. I had a great experience working with General Dynamics IT for 2 years as a Sr. Network Tech. I interviewed for a Network Engineer position at a undisclosed data center in VA. I received an offer a few hours later with a 12K pay raise. My current job is so out of date using old Cisco equipment, but this new data center will offer training on the Cisco Nexus 6500's and soon they will upgrade to the Nexus 7K's. Really excited because I value experience over salary since I am still young. I will also get to work 6 week rotations with 1 week at home working remotely and on call.

I think I struck the iron while it was still hot.

    I will be working in Clarksville, VA so I will have to move. Otherwise it will be a three hour drive one way.

    OK clarksville. I use to work for that agency. I only stayed there 6 weeks. Worst job I've ever had. But my experince was rare. I was working in a Tier 1 NOC when I should have been Tier 3 or a network engineer. Im sure your experience will be much better.

    Well the job is for a Network Engineer working on the data center floor. I currently work for a Network Control Center, or NOC if you want to call it. So I dont mind working with customers. What was the company you worked for?
