Hey all, hope you're all having a good week!

 

 

I had a question and would like to get some Advise  if possible.

 

I would like to know what all a Network Administrators responsibilities are as well as some resources that may help me achieve the goal of becoming one.

 

I know that a Network Administrator is responsible for understanding and using WireShark (at times), Windows Server AD, Understanding TCP/IP and Routing Configurations.

 

But that's about the extent of what I know.

 

Any advise, guidance and/or resources would be most appreciated.

The problem your going to face is what the title "Network Administrator" means to the IT world and what it means to the HR person that is going to hire you are COMPLETELY different.  Unfortunately this is broad question with no definitive answer. The best option is to find out what your passionate about and good at. Then find the title and job that fits. Not Find the Title you like then develop what you think they world wants.

???  HR is told by the leader of the IT dept what the hiring criteria is.  As that person I wrote the job description and the want ad

 

This is a good description of the job title though you are right there can be many shades for the actual work

The real problem with IT job titles is that they really don't mean anything.  I've an IT Analyst, Network Administrator, Network Engineer, Application Support Specialist, Lead IT Technician, IT Technologist, IT Support Specialist, and a few more.  Depending on the company a Network Administrator may be in charge of servers or the actual network infrastructure, which are two entirely different skill sets.

HR may be told by the IT director what the job requirements are, however the HR dept may not know what that actually means.
