    Arrow [For Hire] Experienced game server admin needs any job in the industry

    Evening everyone. I'm a 17-year-old high school student who will be available all summer full-time, and then once school starts I can work a 30 hour week maximum. I can work during the day and be on call all the time if you should need me. I'm really looking for any job in the industry in order for me to gain more experience and a little profit. I prefer to be paid on a weekly or monthly basis instead of a per ticket or other type of system, but really I'm open to all offers.

    Now, on to my experience. The majority of my experience in this industry has been helping companies launch game server hosting divisions of their company. Most of these companies are listed below in my resume, but a few aren't because I'm still under NDA. I've done everything from training support and sales staff to be able to respond to gaming-related questions to administrating and managing the machines themselves. Nearly all of my work has been with the Half-Life dedicated server so, If possible, I'd like to broaden my skills in the game hosting industry, but I'll be perfectly happy working as a server administrator, support staffer, sales (although I'd need some training as to where to get sales, etc), or anything else you need.

    If you're looking for a dedicated, hard-working individual with a great grasp of the English language to communicate well to clients, I'm the person for you!

    My resume is as follows:
