Office Infrastructure. Job of a lifetime

By aypyb ·
I have been trying to break into the IT field, have been offered a job with a .com launching next month. The job is Tech Support Director. The company has offered me the job as they cant afford to pay the going rate for the post. They are aware thati dont have the experience or in truth the knowledge needed but they are confident i will learn the job as i go. Initially i will run a dept of one which is me. I have a couple of questions, (1) Should i go for it?
(2)If so where on earth would i start setting up an office infrastructure, the business in the main will revolve around accessing data from the company website (hosted by an ISP) and storing it.Any input on this would be seriously appreciated!

You're right. Most companies seek IT individuals with several years of "Enterprise experience". This job COULD be your ticket in the door. I would go for it! Just for your information, though, be aware that better than 70% of .com companies fail. This is due to mismanagement of funds, inappropriation of resources, and many other management snafu's. There are many .com's with good ideas, but the key to success is a solid business plan with the right people to carry it out. If the team is there and the concept is sound, you have a chance to learn the industry and possibly get in on a pre-IPO company. Take the chance... Columbus did....

GOOD LUCK!
