I was called into a meeting today, to be introduced to a couple of new subcontractors that will be working for the company. Was told that these 2 contractors had a huge knowledgebase if I.T. information and experience and that I could call on them for help when I have problems or need to know how to do things properly (Yep I was really told that!!).
Ignoring that I don`t do things properly I welcomed the help as I had been working on my own running the I.T. Infrastructure for several years now and this was the first sign of any help coming my way.
So, putting that vast knowledgebase of information to the test I thought I would ask a few questions
Q) Do any of you have VB.Net or ASP.Net programming experience? As we do a lot of development in apps and websites.
Q) Do any of you have experience with IIS?
Q) Do any of you have experience with JRCS and the software that we use for our Service Management Needs?
I can see a pattern forming here
Q) Do you have any experience with Mitel 3300 and Teleworker VOIP phone solutions?
Q) Do you have any experience setting up and maintaining Private mobile APNs and the network infrastructure?
Q) Can you install an operating system?
Thank fuck for that!
I was also told that they would not, and I repeat not, be taking my job. Strange that they should want to tell me that as that….. But I was told that 5 times throughout the course of the meeting, which only made me think one thing ……
As soon as I get home tonight I will be signing up to Monster, Reed and anyone else ….
