                              David J. Boccabella

I am IT professional with over 25 years experience in the industry and have worked in
many sectors both private and public providing my skills and expertise. I can draw on my
experiences to find solutions to difficult problems and implement them in a timely manner.
During my chosen career I have gained a wide knowledge of various industries and have
learned to view a computer as a tool to assist others rather that the focal point of my
career. I enjoy helping people to realise the full potential of their tools and will take the time
to explain complex concepts to assist them in understanding the processes involved.
I have work both as a contractor and as a full time employee in a variety of positions and
enjoy working either as an individual or in a team. I am a strong team player and prefer to
work towards a harmonious and productive environment. When I am working as an
individual I am self-motivated and can work with minimal supervision.
I have a strong customer focus and firmly believe that they are the primary reason for my
employment. I am committed to ensuring that the customer is satisfied with the results and
will take a keen interest in the customer’s industry to achieve this.
I have demonstrated success as a Systems Analyst, Programmer, and Technician and
have an excellent understanding of the IT industry. This has proved invaluable when
diagnosing problems that cover hardware, software, networking, and Internet/Intranet.
One of my best qualities is an agile and inquiring mind. I have never stopped learning and
have seldom found myself incapable of coping with whatever situation I find myself in.
I look forward to new challenges and learning new skills in a dynamic and progressive
