VERNON PALTZ email@example.com | 714.306.2460 SUMMARY I have expertise in all areas of I.T. from server set-up, network device configuration, I.T. resource management to Help Desk Support. When handling support calls, I inform and empower my clients by giving THEM the knowledge to resolve some challenges on their own. In my previous positions, I have been able to reduce support calls and create a positive shift in the department image.
