Summary of Internship

I work in Bauer’s IT Department with my mentors Chris Trembath and Eric Hollander. They give me important tasks and helping me along the way, making sure I get the tasks done. Since apple processing computers make production easier for employees, I work with MAC computers almost all of the time. I often do pre-deployment set ups for newly arrived MAC computers. I also work with database software such as File Maker Pro which helps organize all the new and old MAC computers. Sometimes if the computers have problems we would take them apart and replace the hard drives. These are just few of the tasks I have done at Bauer. Bauer Publishing’s IT Department is essentially a Help Desk where people come to us with problems and we offer them solutions for the problems. For a person going into the IT field, Bauer publishing is ideal.
