Q: What are your job responsibilities, or what does a typical day look like for you at your job?
A: I deal with a lot of internal IT problems and I am starting to become the main point of contact for all our different IT vendors. It is my goal to learn all I can about CRM, SharePoint, Office 365, Zoom, etc. so I can assist with any problems that arise.
