Hi, I was an IT professional working with Document Management software and doing Systems Administration for a few years (all for small companies less than 25 employees each). Last year, I decided to go back to my core profession (Electrical Engineering) but have found I am doing a lot of IT work anyway, just with outdated technology (Windows 2000, older machines, etc.). I now want to return to IT but want to work with state of the art systems and for a big company (perhaps as part of an IT team) doing what I feel I specialize in, which is building and configuring servers and workstations. Having always worked in smaller environments, I feel I may not have enough knowledge to do Systems or Server Administration in a large environment. I'm turning to this forum for some advice as to how to go about getting back into the IT field and what sort of topics to focus on for the interviews that will hopefully lie ahead soon. Thank you in advance for your comments and suggestions.
