Dan Dowiasz - IT Professional

It Pays To Keep On Learning

With over 25 years of experience working in a variety of different fields within IT, Dan was at the top of his game in 2009. But sometimes things can change in an instant; after many years with his previous company, Dan was let go as part of a workforce reduction. After that, Dan looked for work for 4 years before deciding that he had to make use of his time to better himself and pursue further certification. While searching for a route to Cisco certification, Dan stumbled upon LAN/WAN Professional's website and decided to take a look at what we had to offer.

It was not long before Dan decided that coming to LAN/WAN Professional was the right path for him. He was pleased to have found a company that was willing to work with his schedule and was eager to "bang" out his certifications. Dan definitely took advantage of LAN/WAN Professional's fast-track program and excelled through the training program without breaking a sweat.

After a brief job search, Dan began working for a networking equipment manufacturer near his home in Portland and loves it - but he didn't stop there. Shortly after landing his new job, Dan decided that he wanted to continue his progression and obtain the CCIE written certification. Upon learning of this, and because Dan has made such an impact at his company, they were happy to promote him to higher level of responsibility and compensation.
