    I was fortunate to get a phone interview from HR. Then a week later the same from the hiring manager. Both individuals were very pleasant. When I found out I was not selected for an onsite interview, HR was nice enough to provide feedback on what improvements I need to make as I continue with my search for employment opportunities.

    Some key technical questions related to Databases, Operating Systems, Networks and Security. DNS,DHCP, Active Directory configure New exchange.
