Pros: Great hands-on experience
Cons: It's part-time
I am assisting in the set-up of a new computer lab for Ivy Tech's School of Computing and Informatics. My duties include setting up new racks (7) with patch panels, switches, and routers (we also have one rack with 5 servers) Needless to say, there are several Ethernet cable connections that need to be made (nearly 100/Cat 6). Also, we are setting up dual monitors at each students desk; one with a new Windows 7 OS we are installing from the server, and the other for students to use when assembling a new tower from scratch for PC Hardware/Software support class (install motherboard, CPU, SATA & optical drives, memory, and such). The students will be on two separate networks, so we are using different default gateways. Furthermore, I have been wiping used HDs to get them ready for use. When the classroom is done, I may be supervising the computer lab and assisting students. I love it!
