One word of resume advice

I know this may sound like common sense, but when you have something on your resume, expect to be asked about it. Today we held interviews and the feedback I received was things listed on resumes the candidates were not skilled in. If you have advanced gateway/gatekeeper configuration on your resume, we are going to talk about it. With that said I'm proud to say that so far everyone from TE has beat out the competition.

    I had to replace 2 voice gateways a couple of weeks ago. I went into it knowing absolutely NOTHING about it except the general premise that it was a router that PRIs were plugged into that talked to our phone system. Now I know how to password reset a Cisco 3900, busy out channels gracefully, and diagnose bad DSP channels. Oh, and don't expect one TAC engineer to know all of those things at the same time icon_sad.gif.

    Don't worry, I won't be putting voice gateway knowledge on my resume.

    So my resume shouldn't read like the most interesting IT man in the world? icon_sad.gif
    No surprise that TEers are kicking butt in the interviews. Good luck guys.

    LMAO. Also tac engineers are nothing more than tier 1/2/3 support. You don't get special access unless you get your CCIE or your company is a big spender or a big earner for cisco.
