Began as an SEO architect based on past skills with web development and website functionality, and quickly moved into Project/Account Management.

SOCKET

All kinds of stuff

This was my first job when I went to college. I began as a dial-up support technician, and advanced my way up through the following positions: - Technical Support Supervisor - Outside (WAN) Network Administrator, Security Administrator - Inside Network Administrator (Servers/Email) - Internal Software and Web Development In seven years at Socket I was able to learn enough about technology that I haven't run into a brick wall since, as we were figuring out how to build the internet for the rural parts of Missouri while at the same time working on cutting edge broadband and high-bandwidth services for the KC/StL/Springfield/Columbia/Jeff City metros. Soooooo much better than what college could teach you at the time :) Happy to share more about this if you'd like.
