Summary of Internship
As an intern, I work with the Director of Information Technology. Each employee has their own computer which must be working at all times. My mentor and I look over all the computers, servers, key cards, mobile phones (Blackberrys, iPhones, and Android devices), camera system, and telephone system. Also, we are part of the help desk, meaning any employee can walk in with a problem and we have to solve it. Help desks problems include cleaning up viruses, basic troubleshooting, programming phones, and hardware/software installation. This internship has really shown me how technology plays a crucial role in an asset management firm. All activities require the use of technology in the firm, and it is my responsibility to ensure its working.
