SysAdmin and/or Desktop Support

michmoor
Good Day all,

I work for a fairly large company, well over 38,000 employees. I understand that in smaill or even midsize companies, one must wear many hats(Exchange admin, helpdesk or even desktop support). In a large company, ones rule is rather specific. But at this company, they use sysadmin and desktop support interchangely. Is there really a differnce ? Looking up the definition for a sysadmin in google i found that the role of one is very much like desktop support. Is it possible to simply put down Sysadmin on a resume rather than desktop support or are there clear differences between the two jobs.

    Desktop support generally deals with the users directly and works with the users PCs. Sys admins are almost always back room and dealing with servers, writing scripts, and keeping all the data flowing.
