Summary of Internship
During my internship at Bauer Publishing, I work in the IT department or The HelpDesk which is located in the Production department. I work with my mentors Eric Hollander and Chris Trembeth. I generally work with Apple processing computer most of the time. My mentors have me fix the computers that come in with problems. A lot of the computers have hard drive problems which need to be replaced. The other times there are new users that start on a particular day and my mentors have me set up their computers for them. This process consists of setting up their emails on Entourage and gives them access to the programs they need for their department. Some computers that are sent to us sometimes need a build that replaces the old programs with the newer and latest versions. Internship at Bauer does help a lot with a student who wants to eventually go into the IT field. They really give the student a broad view of computers as well as the inside.
