im going to ITT right now for my associates in CNS and bachelors in ISS.

our instructor told my (gay ass) composition class to find someone who works in the field of CNS/ISS and ask them the following questions:

1. list 3 ways you use writing in your job.

2. what is your biggest challenge in your job?

3. what is the biggest reward in your job?

could someone be a dear and maybe answer these questions, so as i can get good grades n such? it would be very appreciated.

The biggest reward for me is being able to do what I love while still learning and being able to help others. (And so on and so forth.)

Assuming CNS == "Computer Network Systems", then I guess I qualify. So here goes...

1. Three ways I use writing. Okay: 1) A part of my job is to maintain and review/revise existing IT policies and create new ones in the event they are needed. Clear writing (with proper spelling and grammer) is important in this case. 2) I often have to provide written documentation on specific procedures, designed so that non-geeks can follow them and not have to call in the cavalry (i.e. me) when they can't figure out what I meant in Step 3... this is very important because it saves me time and annoyance ("Oh, sure, no problem. I can stop whatever I'm doing to help you change your damn default printer AGAIN. It is what I live for.") 3) Being a part of the management staff, I can actually contribute items to collaborative projects, team meetings, reports, and whatnot without sounding like a damn idiot. This helps me engender the respect of my peers, and the praise of my supervisors.

2. Biggest challenge is trying to keep up with what's current in the industry, stay focused on big-picture projects, while at the same time having to deal with the little details of tech support and keeping older hardware and systems running until we can afford to replace them. Many places still hearken back to the days when IT was called "MIS", and it was viewed primarily as an expense (i.e. so spend as little as possible) instead of a strategic resource or investment (i.e. you get out of it more than you put into it).

3. I'll echo xantr3x... computers are my hobby -- I go from the computers in my office, to the computer in my living room, to the servers in my home office, to the laptop by my nightstand. Not everyone gets to get paid for doing what they love; in that respect, I'm pretty lucky.

There you go. No charge for that, I'm feeling generous today. :)

If I got you right, then you just said you're going to study at ITT Tech. If that's the case then you are fucked and have been ripped off big time.

Get out of ITT while you can!!!!!! Tell them to fuck off in the process. Fuck that school!! sorry but it wasted 3 years of my life, fucked my education up, and raped me of my money. After all is said and done, i got no job, i didnt have the knowledge, i wasnt prepared for the job market, the education level is less than that of my highschool, and now i owe $700 a month wtf!

The authors question(s) seems well founded. Why don't you just answer his questions, without tearing down him or his school?

I can't help but point out the irony. By any chance do you mean grammar?

I have nothing worthwhile to contribute to this thread, but everyone else is polluting it so I thought I'd join in.

Indeed. Hats off to you for keeping me honest. :)
