What do IT Workers do?

  • Configure equipment: Whether building a network from scratch or simply setting up log-in credentials for a new employee, IT workers must configure computer and networking equipment so that they work well as a system.
  • Troubleshooting: Sometimes things don’t always go according to plan, such as when a part of a computer network goes down or when the WiFi connnected printer won’t print. During these times, IT workers earn their reputation for resiliency and problem solving.

  • Install/upgrade software: In many companies, it is up to IT to keep software up to date, including common programs such as Microsoft Office and even operating systems like Windows.
