I have gone from the college classroom to my first entry level position, working under the Senior System Admin at a small college.
I am a quick study, and read whatever I can get my hands on. Currently I am learning (in no order) Active directory, VLANs, Meru Wireless controller installs and configuration, Windows command line and Packaging for deployment over a network with Microsoft SMS.
I am a jack of all trades but a master of none, and look foward to lurking mostly and reading and reading some more. I don't think I offer the depth of knowledge of some of you, but I will chime in if I feel I can contribute something factual.
