My name is Scott Johnson, I am a Consulting Manager for Jacobs Marketing.
I have been in the telecommunications industry for over 26 yrs. I started my career in telecommunications as a fiber optic and copper splice technician. I worked my way to being a Manager for Bellsouth for over 6 yrs. While I was a manager at Bellsouth, I was a project manager, network manager, and engineer. I’m very proud of my accomplishments while I was at Bellsouth. I received three department head awards and was the number one project manager for three years in a row in all nine states. I left Bellsouth and went on to work for the Department of Defense during the Iraq War. While I was over there, I learned some very valuable skills that would prove to be useful in my work life as well as everyday life. When I returned home, I went back to work as a Facility Technician. Throughout my career, I have done every aspect of telecommunications. I wanted to do more with my career and be rewarded for the effort I put into the job not just what corporate standards allow. I have learned the most valuable lessons will be with you every day during your career. I have learned that through being prepared, a great work ethic, determination, and having a great mental attitude that you can accomplish all things. That is exactly what Jacobs Marketing teaches and that’s exactly what I was looking for when I came to Jacobs.
