Most jobs in IT

Like most jobs in IT, a system administrator should demonstrate strong problem-solving, communication and analytical skills. But a system admin also needs a strong technical understanding of the company’s specific hardware and software. What you need in a sysadmin will vary depending on the services, hardware and software you rely on.

Skills and experience to look for:

  • Experience with servers, backup and recovery and installing, patching and upgrading software
  • Experience troubleshooting and resolving hardware, software and networking problems
  • A bachelor’s degree in computer science, associate degree or technical training certificate
  • Certifications such as the Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA), Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) or Sun Certified System Administrator (SCSA)
