Network Technician Advice

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

Network Technician in Hill AFB:
"Very Demanding Job."
Learn and study as much as you can about the job requirements and description. I was mainly telecommunications at Hill AFB until my deployment which has brought me a lot of networking experience I will forever cherish and if it weren't for stepping up and learning everything I could I would be lost in this career field. The labor isn't physically intensive but it is very mentally intensive and everyday a new problem arises that you must be quick to respond to or an entire network can go down in the blink of an eye which is why its so important to be on top of the networks you oversee and to watch them closely for any issues that may arise.
