    hi all

    i feel that ive landed lucky especially in todays economic climate.

    its the 2nd week into my service desk role with a major international bank.

    the role isnt just based on the phones but also includes deskside support which gives me a break from my desk. we are also encourage to fix rather than just log and escalate which is better and is more challenging.

    some of my tasks so far have included but not limited to:

    AD user / computer maintenance
    AS400 user maintenance
    Backup managmement
    Avaya maintenance
    Server monitoring / maintenance
    Call logging
    Desktop maintenance

    And more

    So I'm well pleased and there is loads of room for learning and growth.

    I will post more as I become more experienced in the role.

    Regards

    Well done on getting the job!

    Sounds like you're enjoying it, which is half the battle most of the time.

    I take it you've got a good team of people you're working with?

    Much chance of work paying for studying and exams? Or is it too early to tell yet?
