Re: New Job
Wow, good job on getting in!!! Let me tell you what the IT people do where I work.
They get work orders that comes in everyday. THe boss distributes them out to the most qualified person to do the job. Depeding on the job, it may take longer to do. They perform a variety of duties such as troubleshooting print problems, Internet, email, or any other network type problems. If your work use VoIP, then you'll have to deal with that too.
If your company decided to add a room and ask you to get it network ready like my work, several IT people will team up and add drops, power poles, route cables, etc to get the room ready for networked PCs. You have to check the servers and perform maintenance on it, work with switches and routers, add/drop users, training new employees how to use the software, and basically any type of computer problems that pop up.
A lot huh? There's more, but the IT department is in charge of all computer/network, hardware/software related duties. Some jobs are too big and need outside contractors to do the work.
