Senior Infrastructure Engineer
I deliver technology to the business to continue to support their growth.
Everyday is different, but mainly I would go through our system checks in the morning making sure everything is running as it should. Helping people with their queries and problems and working towards delivering a project (if currently working on one).
My degree isn't related to what I am doing now, I have always had passion for technology and always wanted to be in IT. So I have studied for MCSE and CCNA to give me solid grounds to start up my career.
Here's the first step for professionals
There is no easy way up, but you need to be motivated by technology and show the passion, keep attitude to keep up with the most up to date technology.
"Close people were encouraging rather than discouraging, but you need to knock on all doors until an opportunity opens up for you, never give up on your dreams,"
As I mentioned earlier, be positive and always look for ways to make yourself stand out from the crowd. Never sit and wait... the right opportunity won't be looking for you, you have to be looking for it.
My parents helped me a lot financially, but I also took on many part time jobs which I fit them around my free time to earn money to pursue my dream goal.
