Senior network administrator positions at major carriers and major telcos need to be at least a decade old, but it’s getting harder to fill those roles.
The new rules are set to expire in December 2019.
In 2017, a senior network operator could have been a senior IT person, but now the job requires an administrator and is typically filled by a software developer, network administrator or network engineer.
That has prompted some to ask, where are the senior IT people?
A senior IT position is now the norm in most large carriers, with the majority of carriers now having an IT department.
The question is, how many of them are getting that job?
In the coming weeks, Next Big Futures will examine what’s going on with the IT department at carriers.
The network administrator role will be filled by someone who has been working in that position for more than five years, which is the longest the job can be held.
So, what does a senior staff IT person look like?
Here’s a look at the current crop of candidates, as well as who’s making the cut:Network administrators and network administrators are expected to have advanced skills that include network administration, IT administration and computer science, as required by the Federal Communications Commission.
