I just got a pretty good job, although it is far from certainty that I will be able to do it as well as I need to do it. Of course the fact is that the guy who hired me, wants to get an IT guy who does not cost him as much as a fully trained and qualified IT guy costs. I can do that job up to a point in fact, but after a certain point there is a limit to what I am able to do and you are obviously better off getting a Windows server expert if you have a room full of windows servers. In this case the guy has a small office with a half dozen workers in it. They have computers and they have one of those PBX voice over IP phone systems. I am not all that up to speed on the phone system, but I can do a lot of the stuff and I can look it up if I do not know how to do it at first.
Obviously I can learn a lot of this stuff on the job and it is not like I am totally clueless. read more →
