Any IT people out there?

Just curious as to how many IT people are out there. I guess anything IT related doesn't have to be one thing in specific.

I personally am currently working as a deskside tech. Not the guy on the other line when you call that 1-800 number because your internet is down.

Nothing wrong with this, gotta start somewhere. I did and I'm now working as a computer tech for a school district.

Quite a few in here already. There isn't nothing wrong with being the guy on the other end of the phone. Just a lot of people automatically assume that's what you do as soon as you mention IT.

I have actually recently been semi offered a job working for a school district around here. Wasn't real sure how I felt about it at first. Currently working on getting a job with a distribution company as there deskside tech as well. I'd love to work my way up, but like another has mentioned, you have to start somewhere.

I will join in. the title my company has given me is Mobility Solutions Engineer. I work on implementing mobility device management solutions for companies. But i desperately want out of the consulting gig and i am looking for a gig local to me. If anyone has any ideas PM me and ill send you my resume. I am located in Concord NC. In fact i think i am going to start a thread to try and see if anyone out there is looking to hire. I have a back ground in Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory and most things mobile.

I'm Director of Tech Support for a pretty big organization. We support 30,000+ devices, PCs, Macs, iPads, chrome books, servers, network, security, help desk etc. My first job in IT was answering one of those 800 help desk numbers. It's a good place to start and many of the lessons I learned then are still applicable today.

I will be looking for IT work within the next year or so. I m currently the Network Admin (thats the civilian title) for the US Army and I am working toward a Bachelors in Information Tech. / Security.

I am hoping the job market is kind to me when I get out and I am able to land a networking gig somewhere. I love Cisco routers and switches but haven't had very much experience with servers and the like.

I'm a one man show, jack of all trades, IT guy for a 50+ user company with 3 locations and an off-site data center. It sucks at times but it is the best job I've ever had in the 20 years I've been doing IT work.
