From the Hiring Kit:


In the modern business world, where the transfer of data and information is vital to every business transaction and every employee’s productivity, a reliable and fast communications network is imperative. A compromised or faulty network can lead to downtime, lost revenue, excessive costs, and possibly much worse. The individuals keeping networks up and running are called Network Engineers.

Operationally falling somewhere between Network Administrators and Network Architects, the Network Engineer is tasked with implementing the vision of the architect while providing user-friendly tools for the admins. Network Engineers know more about how well a communications network is performing than anyone else in the organization. The ability to apply this knowledge to maintenance schedules and other tasks requires both technical know-how and situational experience.
