Chicago Network Systems Administrator Jobs Overview

Most companies cannot run without a computer network. And computer networks definitely can’t run without people in network systems administrator jobs. People who have this essential job function oversee the day-to-day operation of a company’s computer network. It includes installing, monitoring, and supporting local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), network segments, intranets, and other data communication systems a company uses.

Behind the scenes, a network systems administrator:

  • keeps the company’s computer system and network secure.
  • upgrades and repairs components of the system and recommends new software and hardware to optimize the system’s performance.
  • plans for outages and troubleshoots problems that may slow or stop the network from running.
  • keeps email and data storage functions operating smoothly.

More visibly, a network systems administrator sets up workstations for employees, adds and assigns permissions to network users, and trains them to use hardware and software. Some administrators also manage telecommunication networks.

About Working in Chicago, Illinois

If you're going to Chicago to experience "da Bears," deep-dish pizza, and windy streets, native Chicagoans say "fogetta 'bout it!" While these have made Chicago famous, you'll find many locals eating thin-crust, tavern-style pie. Plus, the city isn't on any list of the windiest cities in the U.S.—a local newspaper named it "The Windy City" after the Chicago elite's propensity toward boastfulness and self-promotion. And while the Chicago jobs list (hit jobs, that is) includes notorious mobsters from Chicago like Al Capone, John Dillinger, and Baby Face Nelson, linguists are noticing that the "Chicago accent" is disappearing.

However, there's a reason Condé Nast Traveler has named Chicago the "best big city in the U.S." Chicago is home to top universities, including Northwestern University, Wheaton College, and Valparaiso. And if you're looking for Chicago jobs, you can relocate to any one of the city's unique neighborhoods, such as North Center with its cozy Irish pubs and breweries or Uptown, the lively entertainment district. For those who want to live further out from the city, you can also find jobs in popular suburbs including Cicero, Oak Park, and Evanston.
