About

I’m a System Engineer in the Cloud Operations Infrastructure Group at Workday. I perform server builds, configurations, and troubleshooting in support of new and existing services. I’ve worked for several companies since leaving active duty in 1994, both large and small start-ups. Workday is easily among the top companies I’ve worked for. The biggest reason is that unlike many of my previous employers, Workday genuinely cares about employee success and provides the support needed to be successful no matter what your role is within the company.

Advice

The skill that has been the most useful here at Workday (as well as other companies) is the ability to quickly adapt to new technologies. My MOS training emphasized learning how to pick up a repair manual for any piece of test equipment and figuring out how to repair that equipment whether I had seen it before or not. That skill translates directly to being able to read about new technology and services being deployed at Workday and understanding it well enough to work on issues that may arise during implementation and/or operational service. My advice is to think about the training you received in the military, regardless of MOS, and think about how those skills can be generalized for the technology sector and emphasize those skills during interviews.
