At the start of the week, Justin and Jordan (Dodsworth) helped me set up my workstation, complete with Mac Mini! Be warned if you are a Windows user, they will lecture you non stop about how Mac is superior! Throughout the week, I went out with Justin and Jordan to Call Outs (which is visiting clients) and helped them with various problems. This ranged from fixing Wi-Fi ‘Dead Zones’ in a client’s house, to testing Ethernet plugs in The Cobo Community Centre.
Justin will try his hardest to ensure you get a taste for everything they do in the office, including working through SQL questions, working with Jordan (Dodsworth) to fix or discover problems on various systems that are sent in by clients, and even doing some creative things like designing websites and other things with Jordan Travers.
Another job I did, which I found extremely fun, was to take apart a Windows XPS 8500 desktop, fit new parts and install Windows 8 onto the system. I found this job really interesting because it allowed me to learn exactly how each part inside a desktop works.
