  •  I have 65 people with these skills (0+ / 0-)

    I just need a few dozen more.

    No.. I don't need every one of those skills, obviously.. I need people with a solid background in this area.  People with hands on skills in Virtualization, Storage (SAN, NAS, DAS) and Backup platforms.

    Just rounding out the whole job description to distinguish it from things like Database jobs, or Sharepoint Admins or any kind of development work.  I don't need Cisco engineers or VOiP specialists.

    Look at that list.. that is general hands-on network engineering.

    ..of course if someone is so perfectly tailored to the job that they have EVERY one of them, then they should definitely email me... we will pay them absolute top dollar, rent them a new townhouse and pay to move them and their family here.

    •  So, your core req is (0+ / 0-)

      'No.. I don't need every one of those skills, obviously.. I need people with a solid background in this area.  People with hands on skills in Virtualization, Storage (SAN, NAS, DAS) and Backup platforms."

      If someone has that, you call them qualified and would interview?

      You also say "This is not entry level.  We need a sizable amount of experience... "

      What specifically do you mean there? 5-10 y? 10-15 Y? 1-4 Y? What is "sizeable"?

      •  If they have hands on skills, they are qualified (0+ / 0-)

        and we'd want to interview them.

        3-5 I'd say on average... maybe 4-6.... more if they are looking specifically for the higher end of that salary range or are seeking a management position.

        The key is the skills.  If they are coming from a large company or data-center environment where their specialized job function was building and managing large vSphere environments on parallel SANs running a distributed AppAssure recovery system or something.. then we'd be open to less "years" and just snatch then up for their hands-on knowledge.

        If they worked at a small company where they were responsible for an entire network, they know Exchange well, they ran a P-to-V process on a half dozen or so servers and used BackUp Exec to backup to an on-site NAS.... well, then we're going to ask a lot of questions about how much hardcore work they've done on these technologies and what other things they know.

        If they are a hard-core specialized firewall/router engineer.. they may be God-Damned BRILLIANT... and we would have no interest in speaking with them.
