Sidebar: Resume Gold

Experts and hiring managers say the following skills and areas of

experience make a storage administrator's resume attractive:

  • The ability to design, configure and administer SANs. This is by far the hottest skill in storage today.
  • Thorough knowledge of the old standby, tape storage. "Tape libraries are still the chosen backup medium in most companies," says David Foote of Foote Partners. The need to perform a full backup and restore won't vanish for years.
  • Experience managing either a specific vendor's products or a multivendor environment.
  • Experience working with the vast, multiterabyte data warehouses that are becoming de rigueur in corporate America.
