A day in your life as an Ashton IT Consultant will look something like this: You take an 8 am call to help a client via remote support that suddenly can’t print. It’s a critical situation because she has a board meeting in 45 minutes.
After fixing that problem, you start working on a server backup job that failed the night before. Then a system alert notifies you that a server is not checking in properly and users report they can’t get to the Internet. By 11:00AM you’ve driven 40 miles to a client office to finish the setup of two new desktop PCs and you discuss which tablet would be the best fit for the owner of the company. You’re back in the office for a couple of hours, entering your notes and configuring a firewall that has to be ready for a job tomorrow. Later in the day you start the mailbox move process on an Exchange server for a project you are working on over the next few days. A client calls at 4:30PM and has a problem with a software application you’ve never heard of before. . . problem solved after a few minutes and you’re done by 5 pm at the office, but later tonight from home, while on-call (rotating), you respond to a critical server outage by working with the team to determine that a power outage caused the alert.
