Randolph High School

Employer, Summer 2017

After my first year of college, I returned to my high school for a summer to work as a tech assistant. My job included careful updating, reingstalling, and/or configuring Microsoft Windows and other software on hundreds of machines. I was trusted to work independently for days at a time, and to bring any problems or complications to my supervisor's attention promptly. I gained valuable experience in working out configuration issues, as well as carefully cleaning machines physically with Clorox and paper towels. I also learned to work well with a coworker, and how to take a leadership role when organizing large tasks that had to be completed within deadlines. Finally, I exercised creative problem solving when setting up unfamiliar audio equipment for an outdoor celebration at the school.

I left Randolph at the end of the summer to resume my classes at North Dakota State University.
