Network Security Administrators provide support for local area networks, wide area networks, and intranet, internet, or network segment systems. Their resumes reflect such skills as replacing physical Windows 2003 servers with new virtual Windows 2008 R2 and 2012 servers, including installing all necessary software and testing for performance and operability; and running penetration tests to check for vulnerabilities on Windows and Linux web servers to make sure they were secure and per SOX compliance. Sample resumes show that many employers look for applicants who have computer-related bachelor's degrees, such as those in computer science, network administration, or management information systems.
