Summary of Internship

I work with the head of Information Technology, Mr. Adthe Gashi. On the work floor, every employee has a computer with multiple monitors. The IT department manages multiple servers and is there to facilitate and make sure that all the servers, computers, and even blackberries are running without issues. We are also there for tech support and we solve multiple issues including viruses, spyware, and system failures. I assisted many users in installing new programs, formatting hard drives, setting up monitor systems, swapping out systems, reinstalling malfunctioning programs, and swapping out parts inside the actual computers. I personally had lots of great experiences at internship and I can really see myself going into the IT industry in the near future.
