Mitchell, Information Technology
What brought you to VEGA?
The drive to learn more about Information Technology in a corporate setting, as well as to better my interpersonal skills and customer service. I thought VEGA seemed like the perfect place to go and I was right.
What are your daily tasks at VEGA?
I work on the IT Helpdesk side of VEGA, which can include networking, troubleshooting, loading computers, imaging computers, installing/uninstalling software, and various other projects around the campus.
Are there any special projects that you have worked on or are working on now?
I did a heatmap of VEGA’s Wi-Fi during the last semester I was here and it was cool seeing where the signal was excellent and where it needed to be improved. Fun fact: the parking lot between the Sales and Manufacturing buildings has pretty good Wi-Fi.
What is your favorite thing about your school?
That it presents the opportunity to co-op at different companies involving your major. It’s been a blessing working here and I hope to one day work in a setting like this doing what I’m doing.
What is your biggest accomplishment at VEGA?
Doing the Wi-Fi mapping or solving a Bitlocker issue the team was having early on in the first semester I co-op’d here.
What kind of impact do you feel you are making at VEGA?
I feel like I’m contributing to making our technological experience here more user-friendly.
What is the most challenging part about this internship?
Probably when a new issue pops up that I’ve never dealt with before. That usually requires a bit of research before I can tackle it.
What is the last show you binge watched?
What was the last concert you went to?
What is your favorite movie quote?
This is too tough. The first one that comes to mind though (and requires a lot of context) would be:
“Ah, so this is what it feels like.” –James Howlett, Logan
