    Hi all,

    I have a telephone interview soon for a IT Support Analyst job that requires I have access to a windows operated computer. As this is my first interview and I have no previous IT related work experience, I just
    wondered what they might ask me to do with the windows operated computer to test my capabilities.

    Job requirements are that I have a sound technical grounding, including a good understanding of networking principles and Microsoft server and desktop environments.

    Any help would be appreciated as I have been trying to get an IT job for a while now since I completed my IT
    degree.

    Thanks

    they might want to link you up to a webex or remote control session to run through a basic lab or something, but then again they might not!

    They could ask you anything related to what they expect you to do on a daily basis. The thing is, nobody's going to be able to tell you what they'll ask you, because every employer is different - each has their own criteria for what they expect a tech to know. There's not a cut-and-dried standard.

    I suspect remote troubleshooting since the role is an support analyst. Either that or they could test for general networking tool knowledge such as the ipconfig, nbtstat, tracert, etc. I have noticed in support roles they make the point of "general TCP/ IP working knowledge".
