Information Technology Specialist Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Information Technology Specialist in Redondo Beach:
"Information about public sector employment."
Know the differences between working for private and public sector prior to beginning a new job in either sector.

Information Technology Specialist in Santa Fe:
""Other duties as assigned" can mean ANYTHING."
This job title is so broad and ambiguous that you could end up doing almost anything. I called myself an IT "jack of all trades" in my interview; it seems like they didn't hear the "IT" part. And I'm not paid what I'm worth (or what I used to make) - I traded a lot of cash for the assurance that I can take leave without pay to travel when I run out of paid leave. Was that a fair trade? Only time will tell.

Information Technology Specialist in San Antonio:
"Be good at your expertise."
Learn to progress on as many related fields as possible. Technologies changes frequent and very fast.

Information Technology Specialist in Greenville:
Read as much about software and hardware as you can. Learn the old DOS to help understand how an OS operates. Be courteous to your customers. Learn how software can be used for more than the intended purpose.

Information Technology Specialist in Richmond:
"Always Listen To Instruction And Record Information."
Always listen to what information you are given and keep a record for yourself as reference in e-form or document hard copy.
