Review:

Varies from day to day. Usually starts off the same with checking emails and following up with any open trouble ticket issues or task that arise throughout the day. I’ve learned how work with many people of different work ethics, and how handle myself in tough situation. I worked under short deadlines. Last minute takings. My co-workers are very reliable and proficient. The hardest part of my job is preparation for an event for senior officers. Everyone looses their heads. The most enjoyable part of job is when we work together to set up network communication in a remote location.
