Information Systems Intern:
This position was split into two main responsibilities; Programming and Help desk. The programming side of the job utilized Microsoft’s Visual Studio 2013. We utilized the C# programming language with the Infragistics UI framework and SQL with PL/SQL. Programming consisted of modifying and updating previous projects. I updated and fixed a number of bugs, some of which were introduced by my previous release. I created a number of procedures to automate the notification of people who’s attention was required and work with the updated code.
The help desk included basic peripheral device replacements (mice, keyboard, monitors, etc.), space management, phone replacements (with number transfers), splicing wires (Cat6), and configuring servers. The job also allowed me to work on side projects for a number of things, including requests for other sections.
