I can do 50% of that, looks like you are trying to get someone to do way to much. Most corporations would split the duties you described into 3 different positions.

That's at least 3 jobs where I am. One for deskside support, one for application support, one for network admin, and I'm sure there's probably enough for one more position dedicated to programming.

Not saying it's wrong since some companies are run different than others (budgeting, manpower, etc), but I'm agreeing with pittman saying the range being too broad.

You kid about that, but I had an college interview with a rep from Northwestern University at that hotel across from the Arena.
Thinking back on it, it seems a little weird. :scared:

Most job postings in IT that I see are way broader than the skillset I expect most people posses.

I'm a jack of all trades and can't say I ever really meet all the criteria for most job postings.

I don't think a good IT person is one that went to school and learned everything they need to know. It's someone who can learn what he needs to know on his own, as new demands arise. That and character matters more than intelligence. There are too many really smart "gurus" that just don't cut it at our company because they can't communicate with coworkers and/or customers.

Couldnt have said it better myself Yubb. HR people write job postings. Most of the time if you apply and resume looks ok they will bring you in for an interview.
