Mr. Watson has been with us for around five years and has taken the IT world by storm. He has immense knowledge in practically everything and is one of our mobile engineers should our clients need a visit with any technical issues.
Lets hear from the man himself.
- Five years with Vigo how does that feel?
Five years at Vigo feels like no time at all. Time has gone by so fast, it feels like just yesterday I was young and fresh faced, ready to take on the world of IT! When I started I was just a learner, now I am the master.
- What have you learnt?
When I started I didn’t know a great deal about computers, I could use them to play games but not much more. Now any problem I’m faced with I can investigate, troubleshoot and ultimately work towards fixing it. I’ve learnt a huge variety of things, hardware problems, software problems, the ins and outs of networking, even servers aren’t as scary as they once were.
- Do you feel you can expand your knowledge further at Vigo?
Of course! The world of IT is forever changing, new technology is released all the time, there’s no one in the world that could possibly know everything there is to know about IT. Just when you think you know everything, someone, somewhere, releases something new.
- What do you most like about Vigo?
I like working in a place that I feel comfortable, with people I enjoy being around. Everyone brings something different to the team, so you never stop learning and improving. Also, on special occasions, Kurt doesn’t take me down to the cellar and beat me.
- Any advice for the younger generation thinking about getting into IT?
For people thinking of getting into IT I would say, always keep your mind open to learning and just try your best. As long as you enjoy IT and are passionate about it, You’ll be Ok.
