The builder of this website works as an 2nd (and 3rd) line Microsoft support engineer: (remote or on-site) Microsoft PC desktop-administrator, laptop, mobile cell phone, or smart phone administration. Server support is welcome too. For this job I am MCSA 2008 certified.
A new Microsoft 2nd line support engineer, on-site support, remote support, or desktop-administrator challenge is always welcome.

Microsoft® Windows 7 & Server system-administrator

He is a 2nd (and 3rd) line desktop-administrator for Microsoft Windows 7 and XP.
And 2nd line system-administrator for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and 2003, MCSA 2008 certified.
This means working with desktop, laptop, server, mobile phone, smart phone, and printer. Hardware is fun. He has experience with Active Directory, file and print servers, and limited experience with Exchange and SCCM/SMS client tools.
He works with remote support, as on-site support and can work on a help-desk.
A happy customer is what he is aiming for.

He shows initiative, with incidents e.g., he can define a problem, start the problem being handled, and have it solved.

Some examples:
For a large bank he helped to get the attention needed to solve slowness of a Netapp profile and user data server environment.
He helped to find the cause of file corruption, this appeared to be a routing Apple device.
Internet over VPN was enabled by replacing the user Windows account by a new one.
Having email on both Windows 7 and XP was repaired by replacing the mailbox by a new one.
An AIX printer, behind firewalls, was made available for Windows users after submitting the required info to the requesting person on short notice.
In order to improve poor Windows 7 application performance: network sniffing.
When user accounts got locked, he suggested the investigation of a.o. Java update login, database login, proxy login and network sniffing, Java appeared to be buggy and blocked the accounts in the end.
For a new company he insisted on working according to ITIL, to improve efficiency of the procedures.
For the benefit of this new company he forwarded tickets to the correct group to be handled there.
For an Electricity company he was successfully in charge of a six men bureau cable bind project, several evenings.
For a Gas production company he suggested the concept of a new network traffic routing to abolish a complex third party device. This is being used now.

The main thing is to keep the customer satisfied, no matter if this can be done quickly, or may take (quite) some time.
