Hello guys (and ladies),
I am new to the technical field. I just completed my second semester at a technical college, have absolutely no prior experience, and very little background with computers at all. I began an internship with a small (in staff) computer company that is growing larger (in business) every week. My boss is a VERY intelligent man with an impressive past. His expectations are a little high. He is not a fan of "hand holding", as he calls it. So, I am basically left in a room with broken machines and I am expected to know how to fix them with no guidance. I am a quick learner and have a good sense of troubleshooting, I just have zero experience and background. I joined this website seeking some insight on helpful tutorials, tools/utilities that can aid my struggles, and tips on troubleshooting. I seem to find myself at a loss of what to do sometimes simply because I don't know of certain methods or have never experienced certain problems. I am just still in the learning phase and my mentor does not seem to like that I am not as advanced as he. Sometimes a simple answer to a simple question is all that is needed to get me on a roll, I just need someone who is willing to answer it. So, I have come to learn the ways of the tech community in order to hone my skills and prove that I am able. I work hard to excel at what I do and I am determined to succeed! So.....hello community.....I am here to drink of your cup and, one day, to refill it for the next individual who thirsts for knowledge.
