Today was my first day in my new position with CAITS an acronym for Clinical Affairs Information Technology Services, as a Computer Support Technician.
It’s a new role in a location at the university that I’ve primarily stayed away from, Jordan Hall. In essence I am the IT guy for the Medical Sciences department of IU. This is where people become doctors.
Today was a large dose of information overload for me. I’m in a period of flux, as my accounts and permissions are being created. After a period of up to 2 weeks I will be on my own.
Right now, the person I am replacing is showing me the ropes of the department. Once he feels like I’m up to handling things on my own, he will move to his new position within the department, which is in Indianapolis.
Tomorrow I have my ETC course, then he will be showing me the other buildings to which we have labs and equipment in.
