Junior Network Engineer looking for work Chicago or Remote
I am currently looking for additional work relating to Network Engineer, IT Administration, and/or Network Security Engineer within the Chicagoland area. This can be full time or part time work.
I am looking to get my foot in the door (so to speak) in order to obtain greater industry experience. I am also looking to work with a company in which can both continue to flourish and grow (the company in profits and client base; myself in experience and quality performance).
I am unwilling to relocate but will commute.
